here it is girl...a little bit about me...and i agree...who wants to wait to be tagged by a "celebrity"? between us not so celebrity scrapbook gals we'll create a little stardom in our own little world!!! and whoever reads this...know that you have been tagged...look forward to getting to know everyone just a little better!!
** i love to distress at least one thing, if not everything, on a layout or project!!

** i love ribbon!! like flowers...i can't get enough and incorporate on almost everything!!!
** i love creating mini albums...the more the better!!might as well change this to altered projects...once you try one...you can't stop!!
** i especially love pattern papers from autumn leaves and my minds eye (wild aspapragus...yummy!!!)
not so much love...
** when i make a small or large mistake when journalling...oooh that drives me bonkers
** when i complete a page and realize that i am never going to be satisfied with it...so i have to redo it!!
** i forget to buy extra adhesive and run out in the middle of a scrapping session...and of course, the store is closed!!!!!
** wasting product when i make a mistake!!
** sitting down to scrapbook when i feel really inspired and staring at a piece of cardstock or pictures for a few hours and realize i have done...nothing!!!
** when the picture in my head of how I want it to look becomes a total disaster in reality...(i think there's a few things i could learn from ali edwards!!!)
** having product that i really, really want to use on a LO and then can't seem to make it work!!!
things i tend to repeat...
** flowers, flowers, flowers...hey did i say flowers?!!!
** clusters...i am really into gathering a bunch of embellishments around my photo and leaving a lot of white space!
** inking edges...of photos...of background paper...of matting paper...!!
** sanding the edges of everything...especially photos!!
** using my corner rounder...can't get enough of it lately!!
** hand written journalling...even though my handwriting isn't as pretty as karla's...i love the personal touch!
** letters...chipboard, sticker, stamp, acrylic...it doesn't matter you'll find them somewhere on my projects...and every chance i get...the BIG monogram letters!!!
what i want to try...
** incorporating more stamping onto my pages...i love stamps...but rarely use them...i did make myself a challenge...from now on i have to use a least one stamp on every project!!! i have stamps from stampin' up that i have had for 2 years and they are still unmounted!!! i know...blasphemy!!!
