The BBC and scrapbooking according to Alexandra Sirugue-Macleod

We are thrilled to introduce Alexandra Sirugue-Macleod this month as our scrapbooking Guest Designer. Her beautiful clean style worked so nicely with our Flutterby March scrapbooking kit!
Hello, Bonjour! My name is Alexandra Sirugue-Macleod. I was born and grew up in Paris and I now live in Chicago with my husband and children. I discovered scrapbooking after the birth of our last child in 2004 and have been hooked ever since. I’m passionate about documenting the everyday life but I enjoy stamping and card making. When I’m not scrapping, I’m either teaching French or baking something French! I love traveling and long distance walking but have a true fear of heights and bridges.
1. When is your most creative time?
​If I can have a free morning, I listen to the BBC on the computer, put the kettle on and scrap away!​
2. How do you unwind?
​To unwind I have to change into something comfy first. Then I have a cup of tea and then I will either get on the computer or read the paper or make something.​

3. If you were in a Rock N’ Roll band, what would your job be?
​That’s a fun but tough one. I suppose I would sing oh and I could be in charge of make-up,costume and prop or I would feed everyone!

4. What is your guilty pleasure?
​A coconut milk frozen bar at the end of a day or two, who’s counting.
5. If your life was a movie, what actress would play you?​
Meryl Streep of course. She’s the greatest and I bet she could imitate my accent very easily.​
6. What’s your favorite accessory?
​I love hats but I rarely wear one.​
7. If your life were a novel, what would the title be?
​Suskind’s Perfume or Jack Kerouac’s On The Road​
8. What was your first job and how did you get it?
​My first job was babysitting several small children ​on a camping ground. I don’t remember how I got it but I know I was way too young for the task and they had all sorts of strange rules that i had to enforce. It didn’t last long thank goodness.
9. Share three of your bucket list items with us.
​I would like to see the cherry blossoms in Japan.
Do more long distance walks.
Learn another language.​

10. What is “dressed up” for you?
​”Dressed up” for me means high heels, a dress and a manicure/pedicure.​
