How did you find ACOT?? I shopped at the store and found the message board just in time for the last crop!

What technique would you like to learn? I would like to get better at embossing - dry and wet.

How many photos do you usually place on a layout? I usually lean towards using at least 2-3

Are you into digital or paper layouts? I do paper only.

What page/theme are you working on right now (or did you complete most recently)? I'm nearly done with a book of my friends birthday that I am giving her as a gift. Otherwise I am all over the map with what I am working on.

Do you have your own scrap room? I wish I had even half a room...and my kids wish it too as I am all over the living room floor.

Have you ever been to a crop, either online or in real life? I love crops - both kinds and have been to several of both.

What gives you the creeps? I can't think of anything in particular right now.

Are you a night-owl or an early-bird? I always was a night owl. I've NEVER been an early bird but now I tend to be more of a midday person. Although if I am feeling up to it I'll stay up. Especially if I'm involved in something like a particular scrapping project or crop.

What is your favorite "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" beverage? I don't do alcoholic beverages but I would love a pina colada or a margherita.

How did you find ACOT??  Many, many years ago when it was still Stickers Galore.

What technique would you like to learn?  I would like to get better at adding embellishments. I never know what is too much or too little.

How many photos do you usually place on a layout? It depends on the layout. I rarely only use 1 photo, but can have anywhere from 2 to 10.

Are you into digital or paper layouts? Paper. I would be too distracted by Facebook if I was on my computer!

What page/theme are you working on right now (or did you complete most recently)? I'm trying to scrap the big events from 2013. Right now I'm working on my best friend's wedding from August.

Do you have your own scrap room? I do! We have 3 bedrooms but only need 2, so the 3rd room is my scrap room for now. Hopefully it'll be needed as a nursery sooner than later.

Have you ever been to a crop, either online or in real life? I've only been to one, about 7 years ago.

What gives you the creeps? Spiders.

Are you a night-owl or an early-bird? Neither! Sometimes I am up "early" (7 am) but usually I get up around 830 and go to bed around 1130. Obviously that depends on the day -- I could be up til 1 or 2 am.

What is your favorite "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" beverage? Micro brews.
