Hello Everyone

I would like to welcome a new DT member to our group.

Lisa-Marie Watling.

My name is Lisa-Marie and I live in the MOST beautiful part of the World - Cape Town, South Africa.  I'm a wife to a gorgeous, supportive man and mom to an absolute delight of a daughter!

I am a "retiree" at the ripe old age of 39 (although some might say I'm a "kept woman"!).  In between school and extra-curricular running around, I find time to sit in my craft studio and attack whatever project I have lined up for the day.

I have always, always had a love and fondness for anything craft related - even as a very young child, I was always cutting, pasting, drawing, painting.  My grandfather was the only other really creative one in the family and taught me sketching, calligraphy, water-colour painting, etc.  He passed away before I really got into scrapping and I like to think that he'd LOVE to see what a wonderful art form it is.

I have dabbled in most crafts - but my heart lies in Scrapbooking, which I started out doing in 2007.  It is so expressive and so wonderful for capturing, enhancing and keeping memories!  I absolutely love how scrapbooking has evolved from being "just a hobby" way back when to an art form.  There is SO much inspiration out there and I absorb it all like the proverbial sponge!

I also love photography - and scrapping brings my two loves together!  What more could I ask for?  A bigger craft studio perhaps...?

I'm so excited about growing with Let's Scrap and I am very, very grateful for this wonderful opportunity!


Here are some of my fave layouts of Lisa-Marie's.

What I love most about Lisa-Maries' layouts is the stories. Yes she is a wonderful scrapper with a lovely style but she is the most amazing story teller and that is so important otherwise they are just pretty pictures.

She does clean and simple so well too.

And... I had to use this one not only because I just love the layout and the colours but because I have a thing for shoes too... and these are gorgeous shoes.

So Welcome to our little spot on the web... I hope you will be very happy here and we are very excited to have you join our team.
