Yo! Momma - Elizabeth (Lizzy) Spongia LeBlanc

I would like introduce my sister, Elizabeth (Lizzy) Spongia LeBlanc, also a fellow scrapbooker and card marker. Picture to the left is when Yo Momma was the queen of one of the Scrappin Packin Momma's semi annual weekend crops.

Here goes….. I have been a scrap booker for approximately ten years now and love challenging my artistic abilities in addition to portraying my “Kodak moments”.

My sister, Patty introduced me to scrap booking before the more modern scrap booking of today’s time. The scrap booking industry has come a long way and I am so grateful to the people who continue to put the time into finding new products and those who keep the love of scrap booking alive. I only recently started making handmade cards and now have the fever. I can again thank my sister, Patty for all of her creativity with the handmade cards and for keeping her blog going, as I look at it and dream of all the cards I am going to make. She keeps that spirit alive in me and I thank you for that Patty.

I belong to the “Scrappin Packin Mommas” who are from the Metropolitan New Orleans Area (Westbank) and just love my group of girls. My group name is “Yo Momma” because I always tell my kid “ I told you so cuz I’m Yo! Momma”. We meet once a month and that is where I do most of my scrapping. I don’t get much scrapping done at home, therefore, that is why I look forward to attending the meetings. I do not belong to any online groups and am not a surfer by no means. I actually have my sister Patty “Momma 411” at my fingertips and I have to say that I think she has me quite spoiled. I have been married for 27 years and we have two children. Our son Steven is 27 years old and has given us a beautiful grandson named, Peyton Michael, who is going to b e 5 years old and “all boy”. My Steven has such a beautiful spirit and it has been an honor to watch him raise his little boy. Our extra little surprise in life is Sara Elizabeth LeBlanc and she is going to be 10 years old on Valentine’s Day and truly a sweetheart. She recently attended a card making party and amazed me with her scrap booking skills. I could tell that night that she has also caught the card making fever. My husband built her an awesome playhouse that any little girl would wish for, but we now call it the playhouse/scrap booking room, as Mommy has moved in with her.
