SISTER Sunday - February 1st

WELCOME to our first sister of the new year!

Ali MacDonald joins us from NS, Canada.

Tell us about your family: I have known my DH [Pete] since I was 16, when his family moved in across the street from mine! We have been married x 17 years! Peter is in the Air Force. We have 4 children, Kate 15, Bryan 13, Daniel 8, and Noah, almost 7. We have a passion for animal rescue and currently have 5 pets: all rescues~ 3 cats and 2 dogs. We also have a pony named Oakley, but since we don’t live on a farm, she is boarded at a riding stable nearby.

Who/What inspired you to start scrapbooking? I had always kept albums with pics and captions, but knew they were unsafe! I heard about a class at the LSS, and mentioned it to my sister who was planning to come visit that w/e. I signed us up… took the 2 hr course (LSS is now closed) and LOVED it. Became dedicated to memory keeping at THAT point.

Does anyone in your family also scrap? My youngest sister Alexandra, 11 yrs my junior, does. She took that class with me! Alex said she has been thinking of getting back into it since her marriage in August.

What size do you normally scrap? 12x12 but 6x12 is a favourite as well.

What is your favourite colour scheme? I am all over the map. I do have 3 go-to cardstock colours: Denim, Candlelight and Pomegranate; all Bazzill. I usually order 2-3 sheets of those with every order from my fave online store! I keep stocked up on it! LOL


Look for more about Ali each Sunday this month
