hahaha, yeah I was thinking that the other day. If I have a girl I am going to be in trouble because I have hardly anything in pink or any other girl colors. But I don't think I have to worry about that because we went for our nuchal ultrasound today and me and DH both think we saw a little penis. Smile

What made you start scrapbooking?? last summer my mom made Tristan a pocket size scrapbook of our trip back home and I thought it was really neat and wanted to try it. When I saw how expensive scrapbooking supplies were here in Germany I decided to go digital. Wink

If you could change one thing about your style, what would it be??? I would try to be more diverse with my pages. I feel like my pages are all so similar.

What time of day is your favorite to scrap? Any time Tristan is asleep.

And what day to you prefer? Weekends or weekdays? I prefer weekdays because DH has martial arts classes a couple times a week so I have some time to myself to really concentrate on my scrapbooking. Weekends are always so busy.

I wanna see a pic of you scrapping in action too! I will have DH take one of me in the next day or two.

This is my favorite right now...it changes all the time.

I don't need much to scrapbook, mostly just some time to myself. But I definitely need my computer and the internet.

Do you prefer paper or digital?
Digital for sure. I have never tried paper.

Great pages!

I have to tell you, I'm sitting here looking at your pages and my 3 year old came up. Your son looks a lot like his friend Sam and he said "Sam, blood?" My kids have never eaten jelly even though I've tried to get them too so he didn't know what it was. LOL!

do you find time to scrapbook every week? if so, how do you do it? (although your "every time Tristan is asleep" answer above probably takes care of this question)

do you have a lot 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 waiting pictures, how do you plan what you're going to work on?

And Charys took my scrapping in action photo "question"! Lol

I totally love that jelly page!

I guess it would have to be this one. I don't hate it or anything, I just like it the least. It's kina boring.

what is your favourite embellishment to use?
I guess I would have to say the paper curls or curled edges. I think it adds a lot to digi pages.

what's the most expensive thing you've bought for scrapbooking? (kits, programs, etc)
I would have to say the upgrade to my scrapbooking software. I use paint shop pro. We already had the program for our digital pictures but once I started scrapping I updated it to the latest version. That was about $30.

No, I don't find time to scrap everyweek. I used to, but recently I have been to tired to scrap during nap times. I usually sleep. Other than the shoe layout I haven't done a page is several weeks. Normally though, yeah, I will scrap a page or two every week, using nap times and evenings.

do you have a lot 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 waiting pictures, how do you plan what you're going to work on?
I am not what you would call a scrapper with a plan.lol I have hundreds of digi pictures that could be scrapped, but I am always sort of at a loss as to which ones to use. I would still like to continue Tristan's month by month pages which I stopped at 1 year. I think I will have several pages to do after vacation and definitely after the new baby comes.

Journaling! I am REALLY bad with that. Most of my pages don't have any at all.

2. I would like to see your first ever layout.
I have that posted a little further up. It is one that I did of when Andreas and I got married. I really want to do it over.

3. Where is your favorite place to shop for scrapbooking supplies?
Scrapgirls.com! I LOVE that site. I could easily spend sooo much money there.

you know, I DID see that. but I was in a hurry and wanted to post the questions you usually ask. Lol let us know if you do decide to do that one over. I don't care for most pages of Andrew's first year book, they were in my early cropping days. But I will never redo them, I don't have that kind of time. Wink

1. What are some new techniques you want to try?
I would love to be able to make my own papers and embellishments using templates.

2. What is the hardest page you have ever done?
I would have to say this one. It took me forever to do the wavy lines on the side of the picture and to find the poem. It was for a challenge on another site. It was to do one about our SO in his favorite color.

3. and when you are not pregnant, can you stand on your head Wink (sorry couldn't come up with another question)

hahaha...uh embarassing, but no. I have never been able to. I have never been able to do a cartwheel either. Too clumsy :rolleyes:
