As always we have a guest designer joining us. Please help us welcome Carolyn Johnson to our May 1st challenge!!


I will let Carolyn tell you a bit about herself....

"My name is Carolyn Johnson and I live in Winnipeg, Canada. I'm a teacher by day and a scrap-a-holic by night. I have a 5-year-old daughter who is the focus of my scrapbook but occasionally my husband and I make an appearance. I began scrapbooking in 2011 as a way to give myself a break during a very stressful year. I quickly became hooked and now I make layouts any chance I can get. I love making cute, funny and pretty pages and experimenting with a variety of styles and products."

Here is Carolyn's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Carolyn, I just love your sunny page!
