We met one of our scrapbooking idols, Karen Burniston (http://karenburniston.typepad.com) on our recent Scrapping Cruise to Nowhere (actually we did anchor at the Portuguese Islands). Karen immediately impressed us with her down to earth personality. She is a real live wire, bubbling with life. Karen is a qualified civil engineer who has traded the engineering world for scrapbooking.
She presented a mini album class where the actual mini album had to be made from scratch and then scrapbooked with photos. the mini album contained a very intriguing and brilliantly designed hidden page technique (only an engineer could have designed this). Her notes for this class were in full colour and VERY ease to follow. It was obvious that her husband John, who also accompanied her on the cruise, was one of her biggest admirers/fans! He was so easy going and chatted alongside his wife about the scrapbooking industry.
This layout is about us meeting and very casually chatting to one of our scrapbooking idols in the Bingo Room on the Rhapsody. We were seriously thrilled!!!
