"Hi everyone, my name is Claire! I live in South Wales, UK and I'll be 26 this month. Since childhood I have always collected (a.k.a. hoarded!) tickets, postcards and souvenirs from places I've been, but only joined the world of scrapbooking in early 2008 as a way to make some use of these collections (hoardings). Since then I've been hooked, and I have a particular weakness for patterned paper and alphabets. I mainly scrap for my own enjoyment of it, and I love a good scrapping challenge. The Butterfly Crafts challenges always make me think about my journalling and allow me to get creative, and I am honoured to be guest designing this month."
