hey guys! i was looking in this forum and i could not find a louisiana forum. i was born and raised in louisiana, however in may i have to move to mississippi. are there any louisiana girls (or boys) out there?!?!?!?!
I live in Franklinton (origianally from MS) which is about 50 miles north of New Orleans. There are some great sb stores around here. And there are also several in the BR area. Of course they have 2 HLs and Michaels but they also have a store called Scrapbook Hardware. Not sure where it is exactly but I'm sure you can google it. They are at Scrapfest every year. (if you go to www.scrapfestproductions.com they have a link in their stores section) I think they also have at least one other sb store there. They also have one in Denham Springs which is about 2 miles outside of BR. Hope this helps.

I'm back! I just located another store in the BR area. It's called Special Memories (a scrapbook boutique).
I'm going to be in the Shreveport area in a few weeks. Are there any good stores there? I think there is a HL and I know there is a Michaels but I'm looking for a store that does nothing but scrapbooking.
It's actually chilly here too. But not cold. For Easter I bought a new dress and shoes. Of course it had been hot so I bought a sleeveless dress. I haven't been able to wear it yet! Today its beautiful even if it is a little chilly.
There are e-mails going around for a Hokie Hope Day on Friday, to support all members of the Virginia Tech Family. Please wear maroon and orange on Friday, April 20, and pass this message on to your friends, family, and colleagues.
Hey everyone! I'm from La. too. Covington to be specific which is really near Annasmom. Hey Anna did you know we have a LSS in Covington? I didn't get to go to scrap fest because it was when my son was born. But they probably were there. Scrappily Ever After is the name.
I registered here a while back, but just started participating in the forum and loading things to my gallery this weekend. I live in Metairie (just outside of N.O.).
Baton Rouge has great stores. I'm not sure if Scrapbook Hardware is still open. A few years ago I went to a crop there, but I think they just sell kits now. You may want to give them a call. Special Memories is a great store - it is in a little house pretty close to LSU. I took a class from them at Scrapfest (which, by the way, is the most awesome event!!!). Another store that I've heard of is Scrapbook & Co., 10979 Coursey Blvd, Ste. E, 225-293-9989. Haven't been there yet, but from their e-mails sounds like a good place.
If you get near Slidell you HAVE TO check out Scrappin' Buds. I've never been to the store, but I hear it is just as good if not better than their Scrapfest booth.
I just went to Scrappin Buds for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Its a really nice little store with tons of goodies! I've also been to Scrappasaurus in Metairie. But its been a really long time. Did they move? Really don't get to shop much in the NO area. Been to both Joannes in Metairie but they really don't have much in the way of scrapbooking. There is a new store in Bogalusa (very close to me) called Scrapbook Heaven. I think they were at Scrapfest but I'm not sure. I just rarely go in that direction. So I guess I'm going to have to make a special trip!
Ya'll have a great week!
