SISTER Sunday - October 5th

Another beautiful Fall day here in Newfoundland. Time to see who our next sister will be!

Please welcome Carole, aka Boo :-)

Tell us about your family: I am happily married to Joel. We have three great kids. Riley is going on 9, Rachel is going on 6 and little Paige who is 3. They are the sunshine in my life. They all have different characters and compliment each other very well. This house is rarely quiet. When it is, I know they are up to no good. We are a francophone family and I do try hard to create French layouts. Although, English is so much easier for me to do.

Who/What inspired you to start scrapbooking? I learned about scrapbooking shortly after my son was born. I dabbled in it a bit but nothing seriously. I used to buy the kits from Michael's with the paper, die cuts and stickers. After letting it go to concentrate on helping my son get the help he needed for Autism, I met with a group of Moms from a parenting site and they all scrapbooked. That is when I got back into and I've never looked back. My inspiration is definitely my kids - I get so many great photos of them. I look for inspiration in everything around me from clothing, advertising billboards, magazine ads, the outdoors and my scrapping friends.

Does anyone in your family also scrap? No one in my family scrapbooks.

What size do you normally scrap? I mainly scrap 12x12 and I love to alter frames and mini albums.

What is your favourite colour scheme? I love earth tones and I use a lot of pink for layouts of my girls.

How many hours a week do you scrap? Not enough! With 3 kids and working full-time I don't get to sit at in my scrap room very often.

What is one thing you always find yourself reaching for when creating a layout? Buttons, flowers, chipboard and ink.

Describe your scrapping style in just three words. Eclectic, shabby chic-ish, and sometimes simple

Here's Carole's submission for Challenge 74. Good advice for any parent, I think! LOL!
