    Hi! I'm Laure. I'm living in a fantastic corner in France : Auvergne.
    I'm a mum of 4 : 23, 19, 15 and 12.
    I used to digital scrap a lot few years ago, before I went back to work. Big family, full time job and a husband away a lot because of his own job, took me away from one of my favorite hobby. I just took time to make some layouts for our year book. Children are older now and more independant, and I'm gently recovering from a long disease... so, I'm back in the game.
    I'm happy to have found this nice place. Can't wait to know you better!

    Bienvenue Laure! (that's about all my French I'm afraid - my 13 yr old is learning it at school but we live in Australia. There are a few native French speakers here so I hope they will pop in and say Bon jour as well.
    I'm glad you found us here and nice and supportive is what we try to be! I'm also glad that you have some time and energy now to return to this hobby we all love here. I look forward to seeing some of your pages in the gallery soon - there are monthly challenges here to help inspire you (in the Challenge Pad) and help earn discounts on products in the store and some of the designers also have their own challenges but feel free to scrap as you feel and if you need help with anything, just ask!

    Welcome Laure! I used to go on vacation to France lot in my childhood years. It's still one of my favorite countries. Love the food! If I could I would live there in my own little farmhouse.

    I sure hope you do!

    Welcome to the Lilypad. I'm biased, but I think it's the friendliest and most caring community around. I'm glad to read you are recovering! Do you have boys? girls? a mix? What do you do for work?

    A mix : a boy (the elder) and three girls. And I was baker. As I won't be able to do some things as I due to do them, when I will fully recover, I will teach to future bakers :)

    @Laure What's your favorite thing to bake? I feel like France has so many more wonderful things they bake then here in America.
