Still Playing Catch Up

Many thanks to my friend Bonnie. Things have been crazy for her & she just published her last post on the Scrap & Snap blog. Go check it out. She interviewed me & I shared a tutorial for basic earrings. Even though I don't digital scrap, there are lots of posts on paper crafts & I get inspired looking at all types of layouts.

Elizabeth bestowed upon me the You Make My Day Award. I {heart} her. I was so touched. I totally LOVE her work. I just couldn't believe it. Thank you :)

Julie tagged me to answer the following questions. I had some fun answering some of them. It's that twisted sense of humor coming out.

1. Name your two favorite scrapbooking topics ~ Well, being that I've only scrapped 4 pages for my parents & 4 for my in-laws in the last 2years... I just don't find time to scrap like I would like to. I scrap Brandon & Josh. Aren't they cute? Yes, they get their sense of humor from me.
2. What are two of the best places you have been to? ~ London, England & Budapest, Hungary

3. Name two things you do every day ~ Tell my family members I love them & do something creative

4. Name two things that pretty much everyone knows about you. ~ I LOVE pink & craft supplies

5. Name two places you wish to visit ~ Paris (I'm a Europe snob) & Manila, Philippines (my parents are both from the Philippines)

6. Two things you may not know about me are ~ Um, I'm kinda an open book? Anything you wanna know? Hee hee, see numbers 7 - 13

7. Name two nick-names you have had sometime in your life ~ Niki (my family & old family friends still call me that - from my childhood) & Shrimprissa (did I just admit to that? Courtesy of my friends in college)
8. Name two interesting jobs (good or bad) that you have had ~ I was a merchandising intern at Disney World in college (THE coolest job) & showroom manager for Robert Allen at the Design Center in DC. I have boxes & boxes of discontinued fabric samples to show for it.

9. What are your top two fun things to do after work ~ I didn't realize there was an "after work"
10. Name two things you would like to learn ~ I'd love to learn Photoshop to make digital artwork. I also want to learn how to make resin jewelry. I got all the basics last year for my birthday, which it's almost my birthday again, & I have yet to make a piece.

11. What were the last two songs that you downloaded or Cd's that you bought? ~ Okay, do I want to own up to this one too. Backstreet Boys Unbreakable & Backstreet Boys Never Gone.
Yeah, I know, get in line for the taunting. I've heard it all.

12. What were the last two books that you read? My 2 newest craft books are Organizing Your Craft Space (it's gonna take a little more than a book to get me organized) & Designs for Beaded Jewellery Using Glass Beads. Pretty much, all books I read are craft related otherwise you'll find me in the magazine aisle.

13. What two TV shows or movies from your childhood do you still enjoy watching after all of these years? Some of you may remember my love for Matlock, but I didn't really watch it growing up. So I guess I don't really have any.

I second the emotion. Pink is also near and dear to my heart!
