Hello everyone. I am a true at heart Cajun but have been transplanted here to Texas. I can't even begin to count the things that I miss LOL. So where are all of you in good old LA I grew up in the Lake Charles area in a small town called Dequincey.
does any of you from louisiana ever try to meet up to scrap? there is a bayou scrapping convention coming in july this year in monroe. any possibility of you coming to it? i am originally from west monroe but since meeting my husband i am now in bernice. which is around farmerville.
Hey everybody! I'm so glad to see some cajuns in here... I live not far from Grand Isle. I'm sure some of you know where that's at. You guys from Dequincy and DeRidder My DD's father and family are from there...I wonder if you know them?
Hey guys sorry I haven't posted here in a while...I am near grand Isle! We are trying to figure out what to do fro the storm if it comes here!!! Can't find a place to stay anywhere!!!!!! Everything is booked solid from here to shreveport!!! Yikes I don't know what we're going to do!!!! I hope none of you are going to get this wherever you live at!!!!
I live in Bogalusa, LA. It's a very small town and we have no LSS. I just discovered Scrappin' Buds in Slidell yesterday. And we drive to the stores in Baton Rouge a lot because my step-daughter and her husband live there. I've been scrapping since 1994 and love all the changes that have happened. I'm considering trying digital but want to research it first. I'm not sure if I can handle letting go of all the paper. That's my addiction.
I remember GBSusan here from another board we both used to be on. Hi Susan!!! Not sure if you remember me or not.
Glad to be here, look forward to getting to know everyone.
I live in Northeast Louisiana and just wanted to let everybody know about something coming up this summer. Bayou Scrappin will apparently not be having the convention in Monroe this year, due to a death in their family. Our LSS, 3 T's & Me in Monroe, will be hosting Scrapbook Celebration at the West Monroe Convention Center July 14 & 15, 2006. If you are interested, email me and I can tell you the website to register!
Hello, I just found this site the other day, and am so excited to find a thread for La!! Anyone in or near the Ruston area??
I am really new to scrapping, and could use all the help I can get. I had no idea there was so much to scrapbooking!! I swear, all the papers, embellishments, brads, eyelets, ribbons, die cuts, and TOOLS!!!! and more tools!!!!
I have done a few pages so far, but Nothing like all of yours!! Some of you guys do some Awesome layouts!!
I had planned on going to the Convention in Monroe to learn some tips, and tricks, and just general rules, but since it got cancelled, I am going to have to rely on the internet for help now.
Sorry I got to rambling. I look forward to learning from all of you. I am off to explore more posts on my new playground!!! LOL

Hi yall, I just found this thread. I posted one myself, but I haven't talked to any of you. I am from Zachary, LA. I am originally from the Ruston area. A Louisianian all my life. Nice to see that there are so many of us.
I'm from So. Cal. but was transplanted here when my hubby got out of the corps. I now live in Rayne. I still have a hard time getting used to life in the country. I would love to make friends with fellow coonasses. Send me a friend request!!
Kim ... We have a home in DeRidder and plan to move there in a couple years ... currently, I am in BR ... We visit there regularily and if you want to get together and scrapbook ... just let me know!!!
I know I'm responding to an old post ... but who do you know in the DeRidder area? I have a good bit of family there myself... and plan to move there as soon as I can get one more through high school and into college.
Hi, I am in Winnfield LA...not too far from Alex! We have a scrapping club that meets once a month. We just (9/23/06) held a scrapbook day to earn money for Relay for Life through Central Management. Several of our scrappers work there. It was a big success.
Adding my name to the Louisiana neighbors on sb.com! I live in north central Louisiana. I'm grew up and graduated from Jonesboro...not too far from you in Winnfield, Kathy. I don't live there now. I'm now in the Ruston area.
