    what is your least favourite page? I will have to look for that later, will edit this post with an answer for you. 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.

    I wanna see a pic of you scrapping in action.

    What is your most challenging aspect of scrapbooking?

    What do you find yourself doing and/or using the most often on LO's?

    I wanna see a pic of you scrapping in action. - Hey, that's MY question!

    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. 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
