We have so many wonderful teachers for you to meet and we hope you are enjoying getting to know some fun facts about each of them!
Today you are meeting Karen Haugland! Karen has been a huge supporter of BC Scrapbooking Crop for Kids since the beginning as an attendee and a sponsor!
"I’m a married mother of three boys, with a work background in textile design. When my first son was a few months old I was invited to my first scrapbooking gathering. I was sold immediately! Seven years ago I was introduced to Close to My Heart. My first order was over $300, my second order was my consultant kit! Just a few months later I attended and taught at my first Crop for Kids event. What a great group of ladies, what a fantastic cause. I’ve been proud to get more and more involved each successive year."
1. I love to garden both flowers and veggies and I’m the only one “allowed” to mow our lawn
2. I have a weird obsession with gravity in my scrapbook layouts – things must make gravitational sense, nothing hanging around in space
3. I love to sew, my high school job was in a quilting shop
4. My Husband I got married 3 years to the day after our first date. Remembrance Day, my anniversary is always a holiday and my hubby literally CANNOT forget it.
5. When I was a kid I wanted to be a fashion designer, wound up designing fabrics for household textiles (Tablecloths, placemats, teatowels, duvet covers etc)
What kind of camera do you use? I own a very nice Cannon Eos Rebel 3i, I love learning to use it and get some great pics, however, most of my photos are taken with my iphone 5 as its with me almost all the time and can quickly and conveniently get real life snaps.

What got me started? My friend Michelle White hosted a Creative Memories Gathering for our Baby Group
