Hi everyone! Today is my day to post to the blog. Let me just say how much I've enjoyed all of the other posts over the past 8 days. You all did a great job and I'm looking forward to lots more fun working with all of you.
My name is Darlene, I live in Southwest NS. I've been married to my sugar, baby, honey, darlin' Gene for almost 25 years. We have two grown children, a son Keith who is 22 and a daughter, BJ who is 20. I've been scrapbooking and cardmaking for just over 5 years and like most I'm totally addicted. I've always been involved in some sort of crafting but over the years most of the crafting that I did was to help supplement our family income so that I could stay at home with our children while they were young. I've been heavily involved in the quilting business and still love to quilt whenever I can make time for it. One thing that I love about scrapbooking is the personal aspect of it. It's something that I'm doing for myself and my family, it's not something that I'm thinking about selling. It's for us, for our pleasure, something that (I hope) my family will treasure for years to come.

I have had the pleasure of having some of my cards published by a couple of magazines over the past year or so and am looking forward to having my first layout published with Canadian Scrapbooker in the fall of this year.

I am so thrilled to have made some great friends along the scrapbooking trail, especially at LCOM, which is the sister site for this blog. We would love for you to drop by there, register and take a few minutes to look around. Be sure to check out the gallery, it's filled with so much scrappy goodness. There are alot of fun things going on at LCOM and lots more to look forward to in the next few weeks. I would also love for you to stop by my blog and say hi!






I hope you enjoy my sketch and if you are inspired to make a layout using it, be sure to post the link to it here so that I can add your name to the list for a RAK.
Have a great day everyone, happy scrapping!!!!
