my simply elegant friend june (hey! that would be a good name for a blog!) has tagged me with one i haven't seen before...and it has some really *interesting* questions:

1. If you could have 100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
embellishments, for sure, with an emphasis on basic grey rubs; fancy pants chip; love, elsie...well...everything, i guess; (lol) prima flowers...ooh...& the new marah johnson ci stuff, which is to die for!

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rub-ons, which would you choose?
rub-ons. i have a serious addiction. (a serious addiction!)

3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year...which would you do?
easy--cards--my hands down favorite! they're low-commitment, you can make lots, people like getting 'em, & you can incorporate any interest, technique or product.

4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home...(can't have both hehehe)...
ooh! a store!!! i'd be doing a lot of the same stuff i do *now* at work...and I'D be getting the money! plus i'd meet tons of crafty people, and make stuff every day, and i could write off the price of xyron cartridges on my income tax! ...niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice... :)

5. What is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style?
it's the paper equivalent of multiple personality disorder! i tend to think i'm more graphic-design-ish than artistic, actually, so really i try NOT to have any one particular style; i'd rather make things which reflect the recipients' interests and their likes/dislikes. having said that, i s'pose the "default" lauren project is collage-based, incorporates some vintage items, has lots of layers, and at least a little bit of sparkly *something*!

ok darlings, as you know, i have a three-pronged policy on tagging:

  1. if you're reading this and you'd LIKE to be tagged, you're tagged
  2. if you're reading this and you would NOT like to be tagged, you're excused...BUT...
  3. if you're NOT reading this, you're totally disqualified from play!!!

(i'm sorry, but i'm going to have to be absolutely firm on point three!) :)


  1. oh my gosh!!! i am SO stealing your tag policy!!! i LOVE it!!!

  2. I agree - great tagging policy :o)

    You know what else? You're totally nuts! Hooray! (It certainly explains why I feel so at home when I visit your blog...)

    About the teeny PG monkeys: if you would genuinely like one of your own (ie if you weren't just humouring me when you said you liked mine!), and if I can find them again in the shops, I would be happy to send one to you. I know that I would be inconsolable if the situation were reversed and they were only available in the States, OUT OF MY REACH - and I don't like to think of other folk feeling like that :o)

    Also, about Top Gear - I went into overload yesterday and watched about 4 episodes in a row (I discovered a channel that was showing a marathon of TG repeats). I only stopped at 4 becasue my spleen was getting dangerously over-inflated ;o)

    Sorry for loooooong comment,

  3. Ohhhh, can I steal your tagging policy? You are full of good ideas. You smart, funny girl!

    I didn't choose rub-ons, I chose stamps...but it was a difficult choice. I love them more and more.

  4. *sigh* Love the whole papercraft/card-making thing but am just seriously uninspired when it actually is 'doing time'. *sigh*

    I'm afraid I must be derivative - I like a pattern. Ooo! Maybe I am not the free-wheeling soul I always supposed? See, the blogosphere is fabulous for unintentional navel-gazing!! :-@)

    BTW loved the monkee cards for MM - muchos cleverosness

  5. Yes, you are clever, thats a great tag policy!
    I also agree with the *sparkly something* comment!

  6. I fall in the 2nd category! Still in the game, eh?!


the *BEST* part of blogging is the comments, dontcha think? thanks for taking time to leave one! ~♥~
