Tagged By ANNE

I got tagged by the lovely Anne,
so now i have 5 questions to answer,
1)If you could have 100.00 pounds worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments,which would you choose, ooo that would have to be papers i think as i do tend to store embelishments and just look at them lol,
2) If you had to choose between using only stamps or rubons which would you choose ,I would have to choose stamps as you can do so much more with stamps (some times i get in a mess with rubons lol,)
3) If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts ,but could only do one for a year which would you do , well that would have to be cards but they are not that awesome so i dread to think what my scrapbooking would look like ,i realy am very envious of people how do scrapbooking,
4)would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home (carnt have both,lol,) i think i would rather have a scrap room as i would want to be out buying for the shop all the time lol,but i would have to sell one of the kids on e-bay to be able to have a craft room lol,
5) And the last but not least ,what is your current cardmaking or scrapping style , errr! sometimes it works sometimes it dont lol,i would love to be more adventurous but plain and simple works for me lol,lol,

Now i have to pick 5 people to tag in no particular order ;





Helen my blogging buddy ;,
