Welcome to By-You (Bayou) Scrapbooking! I was born and raised in Louisiana but have been living in North Carolina since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. I have been scrapbooking all my life and have been organizing retreats and events on Meetup since 2007 in NC under my NC Meetup Group Cropcircles Scrapbooking. Our plan now is to move back home in the next 2 or 3 years and since I have a lot of scrapbook friends back home in LA,MS,AL and TX that have been wanting me to start doing events there I have decided to get things started now and am planning on doing 2 events a year In Louisiana until we move back permanently and then we will have monthly events! I am also hoping to recruit a few local friends to do events there too until I return. Our first big event will be in March of 2015 so stay tuned!! I will also be posting a few events that I am doing with my NC group in Tennessee and Myrtle Beach this year if any of you would like to take a road trip. So please join us!! I have not seen many local Meetups for scrapbookers in Louisiana so I hope we can build a big group of some great ladies to get our Crop on down the By-You!!
