Carol West  

My name is Carol but I'm better known as Craftingranny. I live in the USA in a small midwestern town where the notorious outlaw Jesse James was killed and the onset of the Pony Express. I am married to my soul mate and the man of dreams for almost 25 years. We have a blended family of 3 boys and 1 girl, 7 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren with one due in September, 4 step-granddaughters, and 11 step-great grandchildren, and last but not least our 2 four legged babies, Molly (11) and Sparkey (6). 
A little over 2 years ago I became addicted to scrapbooking and making cards, with absolutely no idea of what I was doing, so I decided to start a blog in the hopes I could learn from others. These past few years I've met so many wonderful and inspirational crafters from all over the world and there isn't a day that goes by I don't continue to learn something from one of them.
It is such an honour to have been asked to be a guest designer for September and given the opportunity to work with such amazing and talented designers. I hope you will be inspired by what you see here and join us for this month challenges. A special thanks to the blog authors and design team for giving me the opportunity to share my creations with you. 

Welcome Carol glad that you are joining us looking forward to seeing what beautiful creations you create for us.  
Please do go and pay Carol a visit...
