what is your least favourite page? I will have to look for that later, will edit this post with an answer for you. Wink But I really don't like the first 20 or so pages I did as a scrapbooker. My style has certainly evolved.

ETA - here's one of my least favorite layouts. It's from Jordan's book. (and that's my mom holding her)

have you inspired anyone to scrapbook? yes, I believe I have. some of my friends are scrapbooking now, which is awesome.

why did you start scrapbooking? because I wanted to make a special book for Andrew's first year. I have about 20 photo albums. I was always cutting up my photos to make them all fit (I've always taken a TON of pictures), so this was the next step, really.

Me and Charlotte at crop night last month

What is your most challenging aspect of scrapbooking? Coordinating my papers and playing the actual layouts. I spend sooooooooo much time doing this.

What do you find yourself doing and/or using the most often on LO's? Lately, I've been using my Cricut on 75% of my layouts. I also tend to put a lot of pictures on the pages, and most of the time, it's a free-form type thing (vs a color block, pre-measured placement)

Post a picture of your favorite layout of each child.

I know I've seen it before but what does your cropping space look like?

What time of day are you the most productive with your scrapbooking?

What are three scrapbooking items can you not crop without?

What kind of albums do you use?

Andie, you're so demanding!!!

Post a picture of your favorite layout of each child.

I have two favorites of Natalie


Jordan

Andrew

I know I've seen it before but what does your cropping space look like?

What time of day are you the most productive with your scrapbooking? later afternoon or evening - but really, it's any time I'm with my stuff and NO KIDS. Wink I'm least productive at the start of a crop because I like to talk, but it's the middle of the activity where I seem to get my speed.

What are three scrapbooking items can you not crop without? I use three paper trimmers, so I'd have to have at least one of those, my Dotto runner (love that thing!), and scissors for silhouetting

What kind of albums do you use? 12x12 post bound (I used to use the CM albums, but hated trimming my paper

Lets see your favorite page.

This is my current favorite page (the one of Natalie's eyes above is one of my all time favorite pages)

What is one thing you need to scrap? (coffee, music?) Lots of light and music (preferably '80s)

What is the one thing you would like to change about your scrapping? I wish I could get a smoother start to do my pages - right now it's time consuming planning my layouts and then finding the right paper. I just wish it was easier for me, just less time consuming, I guess

You CRACK ME UP! Sure wish you were coming to crop on Saturday ... Rich is going to make us margaritas.

1. If had $1000 to buy anything for your scrapbooking habit, what would it be?? I would buy a bunch of Cricut cartridges, to start, and then I'd outfit myself with a better scrapbooking corner - I'd get a bigger work surface that's solid (the card table doesn't work for punching holes) and I'd get a wicked storage system for it all. That's it, I think I have everything else I need. Wink

2. I wanna see a picture of your most tortured layout...you know that one that kept you up for hours

That would have to be Natalie's 12 month watch me grow layout ... I'm still not completely happy with it, but it will do. I can't even tell you the hours I put into it, and what sucks is that you can't tell that by looking at it, because most of those hours were spend agonizing ...
