SISTER Sunday - November 11th

Time for a new sister of the week! Today it is Lisette Madsen from Denmark.

Tell us about your family: I have been married to Anders for about 12½ years. We have a daughter called Signe and she turns 11 the day before Christmas. We also have a crazy dog called Speedy, and yes, he is very fast!

How/Why did you start scrapbooking? I first heard about scrapbooking back in 1996 when my daughter was born. Iwanted to make a book for her, but I wasn't satisfied with those books in the stores. In my local hobby store I found a scrapbooking kit for beginners. The size of the layouts was A4( letter size) and the kit contents some cardstocks in different colours and stickers, no pattern papers at all. We didn't havethings like rub-ons, pattern papers, ribbons and such in Denmark back in 1996.

In November 2005 I searched for the word "scrapbooking" on the internet and was surprised to discover that scrapbooking is so big a hobby all over theworld and I have been addicted to scrapbooking ever since.

How long have you been scrapbooking? For real since November 2005

What is it about scrapbooking that you really love? Telling my family's heritage. My family's and my story is very important to me and I think it is a gift for the future generation.

How many hours a week do you scrapbook? It depends but about 10- 15 hours

How long does it take you to complete a layout? About 3-5 hours

Where do you get your inspiration? From magazine and internet galleries
