What do you love the most about scrapping? The chance for a creative outlet to be tied to my memory keeping. So much more fun than just a journal.
What do you dislike the most about scrapbooking? When I get into a technique that is a pain to cleanup. I prefer low-maintenance scrapping, LOL!
Have you ever taught a scrapbooking class? No - but I would consider it. It's hard to get into that in my area, as you really need to be fluently bi-lingual to teach classes in Montreal. My French skills just aren't up to that level.
Have you ever been published? My first published LO will be quite soon - I have a LO in the upcoming fall issue of Canadian Scrapbooker, and I'm very excited about it, as the LO has special meaning for me - it's about my Grandfather.
What type of camera do you use? I have a Canon Rebel XTi, and I carry around a Canon Elph in my purse. Best of both worlds that way - I have the big girl camera for when I want to get great pictures, and the small pocket sized one so I don't miss out when an unexpected photo op comes up.
What would be your perfect day? Any day where I could sleep til noon, and spend the rest of the day with my family. Sushi dinner in there somewhere wouldn't hurt, LOL!
I can't imagine my life without ... I know I should say my children. But I've only been a mom for 3 years, so I remember what it was like pre-kids. So my answer is: I don't WANT to imagine my life without my kid(s). I CANT imagine my life without caffeine. :)
JJ says, "One of my favorite sites to visit is the Pioneer Woman blog and her photography blog. Her regular blog always makes me laugh, and she takes such beautiful photos! And I have learned so much from her photography blog - she's self taught, so she uses words that all of us non-professionals can really understand."

Does anyone in your family also scrap? My sister digi-scraps, and a couple of my cousins paper scrap, so it's fun to share LO's back and forth.
What size do you normally scrap? 12x12 (but I like to dabble in other formats)
What is your favourite colour scheme? Right now? Pale blue with chocolate brown. But I suspect that will change to pink in a few short weeks, LOL!
How many hours a week do you scrap? When I'm NOT pregnant? Probably 12-16 hours a week. Now that I'm preggo, and short on energy, I mostly scrap on Friday nights.
What is one thing you always find yourself reaching for when creating a layout? Lately it's been buttons. I have a hard time doing a LO without them. I'm also quite addicted to Fancy Pants felt these days.
Describe your scrapping style in just three words. Eclectic, changes daily. :)

Hi scrapping sisters!!!
Life is just one big roller coaster and I am so glad I have scrapbooking to record all the highs and lows.
Scrapbooking is so much more than a hobby for me, it is a reason! It can lift your spirits remembering good times , it can help with the grieving process and feel closer to loved ones lost and just being creative helps with stress levels too! Not to mention the fabulous and inspirational friends I have made in this industry, I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful friends right across Australia and the World through this craft.

I was looking through flickr earlier today and came upon this collection of plush toy photos. This got me thinking about the toys I had when growing up. I wish I had photos of my special toys to go along with the good memories.
My children have SO MANY plush toys -- and they have names for all of them! One day they all got their plushies out and spread them out on the stairs to get a photo of them. I'll have to try and find that photo and scrap it someday :-)
So... here's a challenge for you: photograph some of your child's favorite toys, or maybe you still have favorites from your younger years.
Post it to your blog or post in the comments. We'd love to see what your child holds dear.

What I love about scrapping: I seem to scrap more when I’m stressed. It is a stress reliever for me. Oh but most important…all the yummy paper!
What I dislike: THAT I CAN’T HAVE IT ALL!
Difficult topic: Me. I can scrap about the kids, hubby, pets, vacations etc…but when it comes to me I just can’t seem to do it. I really need to so my kids and grandkids will have something to remember me when I’m gone.
Taught a class: No. I have helped prepare for and been kind of an assistant for classes, but never by myself. Unless you want to count the time my daughter had a scrap party for her birthday. I taught 14 preteens how to make a backpack tag, a mini address book and a mini paper bag album.
Been published: No
What kind of camera: I use a Sony CyberShot 7.2. I would love a new one, but it’s not in the budget!
A perfect day would be: me in my pj’s scrapping in a huge scrap store with everything I could imagine at my finger tips. Including some cocktails! With no one saying "mommy, mommy I want…can I have" or "honey, what’s for dinner"
I can’t imagine my life without:
My family, because they are the reason I scrap.

"My favorite website is SYC. They have a new challenge every week and you can only use your old scrap stuff, so it encourages you to dig through all your old stuff you just had to buy but never used -- which I know we are all famous for. They have a really great rak this week! No, not stuff, but something good that any blogger can use!"
