Hi, I’m Karla Yungwirth and I’m so excited to be a Guest Designer with the Lasting Memories Challenge Blog this month!! I love scrapbooking as well as making cards, doing mixed media, sewing, and crochet, and I love being able to share crafting, especially the importance of memory keeping, with my three girls. I currently live in Alberta, Canada, with my husband and children, but I grew up on the East Coast in Nova Scotia. I started scrapbooking in 2001, and I’m so blessed to have met so many wonderful and creative people along the way!
You can find me on my blog - http://creative-love-affair.blogspot.ca/
