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.

Hello, Margo. I am in Baton Rouge. I am a transplant. We moved here five and a half years ago. We also lived in New Orleans and Reggio (in St Bernard Parish) for four years while in seminary.

I guess after nine and a half years of living here, I can claim it, huh? LOL

Lisa, I'll have to go look it up. I tried a new "simple" one. It was fairly quick and easy and tasted good! lol And yes, you can use any shrimp chowder recipe and substitute crawfish for it.

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.

Sandra

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, 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.
