1. embellishments, embellishments, embellishments... hahaha... i never know how to add them and what to add, etc.

2. my first ever layout.. hmmm.... here are two Wink my first digital and then my first paper (you didn't know i did paper did you?! Wink )

(the story behind my paper pages... my dad passed away last year Sad and a friend of mine made me a scrapbook album of all the pictures i had ever emailed her of my dad!! it was amazing to receive!! she left empty pages for me to add pictures that i have of my dad, and to inspire me to scrapbook. it has been quite therapeutic to do the pages.. they are quite simple but i wanted to keep them that way so the focus is on the best man in the world, my father...)

1. i don't need much.. since i mostly do digital Wink i need a daughter who is sleeping and a computer that is in the mood to work Wink

2. i try to do a page while jeena is napping and/or in bed for the night!

3. my most expensive page... umm... well all of my digital pages are FREE!!! i haven't spent a penny on them... so i'd say my most expensive page are the ones i did for my dad's scrapbook.. and they were about $5 all together because i went to the dollar store to get the paper Wink so just for the fun of it.. here are the other pages i have done (paper)...

Delia! I had no idea you did paper at all, I love the album of your dad. That's great that your friend did that for you, as it's turned out so nice!!!

do you find time to scrapbook every week? if so, how do you do it?

do you have loads of pictures waiting for you to spend time with? if so, how many layouts do you estimate you have waiting for you to work on? if you don't have the loads, how do you plan what you're going to work on?

I'd like to see a picture of you cropping in action. Wink

1. i love that we can make pictures look better by putting funky frames around them, adding things, etc.... not having plain old pictures sitting around!

2. i hate not having ideas!!!! it seems like i take a long time browsing around sites, etc. to try to find a layout that would be good... i have to trust myself more and become more creative!!

3. all different kinds of frames and lately it's been flowers.. when i had other programs installed, i used drop shadows lots too!

How long have you been scrapping? (sorry, I'm new and don't know)

Other than your dad, what is your favorite thing to scrap?

On a side note, I think it's awesome that you scrap everyday! If I had that kind of dedication I could probably catch up!

i've been scrapping for about 2 years... when i was pregnant i started!!

my ultimate favourite person to scrap is my JEENA!!! (my 18 month old daughter!)

yes.. i scrap everyday but you wouldn't know it Wink half the time i don't save what i did because i end up not liking it Wink i really need to start at the very beginning of my cd's and scrap properly and productively Wink
