Delys tagged me:

What scrapbook products/lines do you dislike?
Die Cuts

Whats the hardest thing you've had to scrap?
My weight loss/lifestyle change - really want to do this and have collected some stuff but haven't started. Not sure how to approach it - should it be a whole album? (probably) and what sort/size? (don't know)

What technique do you use more than anything else?
This changes every few months. Recently it's layering lots of diffferent patterned papers.

What is the smallest scrap of paper you save?
Around 2inch square - especially if I think I can layer it for a card

Have you had any scrapping related injuries?
No - but I think the kids sometimes want to shoot me when they're hanging out for dinner and I
say "I just want to finish this page".

Finish this sentence...'If I weren't a scrapbooker/stamper, I'd spend my money on..
To quote Delys "Antique shops, art for my walls, books and more books..well actually I still buy books anyway."

Give your best storage organisational tool...
The big triple cupboard from Mitre 10 that resides in our garage - holding all the overflow - things from my scrapspace that I couldn't possibly get rid of but don't access that often.

You just won a week long scrapping cruise for 5. Who is going with you?
I'd take my Mum, Fay, as she's a keen scrapper. And all you fellow scrapping bloggers who check into my blog. We've mostly never met but I feel like we're friends and wouldn't it be a great way to get to know one another more. (OK you can all come)

When you received your first publication notification, who did you tell?
Actually I 've only been published once. Haven't submitted anything else. My Mum (as a scrapper she gets it!), Darryn and the kids. Then my sister, who is not a scrapper and doesn't get it but the project being published was a gift I'd given her and I had to get it back to be photographed!

As for tagging someone else?
Michelle TW and Ali W

I'm pleased to hear that other mums make their children wait for dinner while a page is scrapped.
