Our Large Photos Guest Designer is the fabulous Megan Klauer!
Short bio: Hi, I'm Megan Klauer! Being a mom of 3, I love to escape to the world of creating and scrapbooking as often as possible. It's as much about relaxing and being creative as it is about capturing and sharing those stories for future generations. I strive to journal on my layouts as much as I can; even if it's just a short sentence or two. I work full time as the secretary of our family business and have my own photography business which keeps my weekends busy. When I find the time, I love to hunt and fish; anything to spend time outdoors with my family.
How did you get started scrapbooking? I've always loved art and drawing. It was my favorite subject in school. When I was pregnant with my oldest son (11 years ago) I went to an in-home scrapbooking party and have been hooked ever since!
What is your favorite American Crafts product? Oh, most defiantly Thickers. The variety and textures available provide endless creative opportunities.
This was one of those everyday moments that needed to be blown up to an oversized photo. The Ready Set Go collection translated from "city/travel" to "country" perfectly.
