I found ACOT while the hubby was out deer hunting and I was home with the kiddos. I scrap in odd numbers, so either three, five or seven photos. I only do paper layouts and can't really see myself changing either! I'm working on a valentine/line/birthday theme right now. I did have my own scrap room until surprise we were pregnant agian and it was a boy!! I have never been to online crop and just recently after 12 years of scrapping went to my friends house to scrap for a few hours!! Tornados and fires gives me the creeps. I love to stay up late and be a night-owl, but doing daycare and having kids makes me be a early-bird. The only drink I need throughout the day is a can of Pepsi...gotta have my caffine!!! You gals/guys are great around here!!! THANKS FOR THE LOVE!!!

At the most 3

Paper!

 How did you find ACOT?? 
My aunt Laura (Fiore) introduced me. She keeps doing these freakin' awesome layouts with my kids, so of course I have to look and then one day, I just got stuck!
What technique would you like to learn?
Stamping with different inks; After organizing, I realized I don't have any nor do I know ANYTHING about them....
How many photos do you usually place on a layout?
Depends on the layout but at least 2-3; lately it's been sparse with 1 large photo, but I'm getting back into my old ways with mulitple photos.
Are you into digital or paper layouts?
Both. I really like paper because I love playing with the textures and the different depths, but I'm definitely quicker at layouts using PhotoShop.
What page/theme are you working on right now (or did you complete most recently)?
I'm about to start another one with my daughters. Not sure where it will lead yet. That's kinda how it works sometimes.
Do you have your own scrap room?
YES! But it had to be called the "Craft Room" so that my husband didn't feel that left out. He still calls it my Girl-Cave though!
Have you ever been to a crop, either online or in real life? 
Both. Love the 6-Midnight crops at LSS, and I've particpated in ACOT's last one as well. I really like the Fast Scraps!
What gives you the creeps?
Spiders. Bugs. Mice. Rats. Most things that are creepy crawly, except snails, & worms (mostly because I know I can outrun them)
Are you a night-owl or an early-bird?
Night-Owl for sure. Been known to stay up til 2 or 3 playing with paper.
What is your favorite "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" beverage?
MMMM.... toss-up between a yummy Mojito and a Kahluha w/ chocolate milk.
