1. what scrapbook lines, products, ect. do you dislike?
i think i'm all done with eyelets - to much trouble!

2. what is the hardest thing you have ever had to scrap?
for me i have had nothing that was emotionaly hard to scrap, but i have two of my bff's melanie and courtney whos counsin lost her son due to complications while preganant. her and her husband went through the delivery and the birth of their living little angel to only have him go to be with the Lord later that day. reading what melanie and courtney have wrote and the pictures that they took, i think i will treasure in my mind for ever. because i now know he is with Jesus and is healthy and happy and an angel for real. * still can cry over this.

3. what technique do you use more than anything else?
inking - paint

4 X 4 everything else goes to tucker

5. have you ever had any scrapbook related injuries?
well first the "heartache page" while at a crop at a church in greenwood i went to stay they night with a girlfriend and woke up about 2-3 in the morning with unbearable chest pains. cliff and mindy had to call an ambulance and was at the hospital all week-end. mindy was by my side the whole week-end and cliff her dh kept tucker for me.
second at that same girlfriends house i woke up one night after cropping thill 2 or 3 in the morning to use the restroom and kicked a cropper hopper rolling tote and broke my last 3 toes on my right foot.
other than those major ones just lots of cutting my hands with my scissors, or paper cuts.

6. finish this sentence "if i wasn't a scrapbooker i would spend my money on?" clothes, shoes, and house stuff. don't get excited i'm still gonna scrapbook!

My Dreams.....

this week-end while cleaning out my scrapbook supplies, i came accross this little note that Marah Johnson wrote to me two years ago at GASC in arlington. it was like someone smacked me in the face! it reads..... "Dare To Follow Your Dreams" signed Marah Johnson so what are my dreams? well here you are.....
1. to be a great mother to ds dakota (16) and dd tucker (6)
2. to be a supportive, loving wife to dh eric ( i fail at this often, but you know somedays he just pisses me off)
3. to be a encouraging big sister to mary - trevor - jerod
4. to make my parents connie and gary proud
5. to love and take care of my grandparents mildred (aka nannie) and roland (aka popo) i love them so much - that days my heart aches because i'm not closer to them
6. to be a loyal, supportive, great listener, loving, caring friend
7. to be a stong, faithful, praying, bible sharing christian woman
8. debt free

ok now for the selfish fleshly things.....
1. i want a HOME not a house
2. a chevy tahoe would be nice
3. a sucessful buiness that would allow me to stay at home and be a home maker and dedicated photographer, and scrapbooker.
4. a skinnier back side *wink working on that with the help of rose (my personal trainer)
5. my name in lights "le anne bull" ok settle for my name in many scrapbooks not in lights

i have decide to do just what Marah said i'm gonna "Follow Those Dreams" starting today! the first step is to be faithful and pray that God knows the path for me, and i must be patient.

what does it take.....?????
to make it in the scrapbooking industry? i know i'm not the next melody ross or heidi swapp but i would like to be known! to much to ask? i don't think so. so what do i have to do? invent something, my handwriting, or just general page creating? i think i'm a good scrapbooker, and take great photos, so what else do i need? one i need more time, anymore i only get to crop when i go to an event or to someones home. i set at home and know i need to crop, but look around and see so many other things that have to be done too. put this on my list of items to do! so i have set some goals for myself, now they may be unreachable goals but i won't know till i try. here are my scrapbooking goals....
1. i wish to be published 9 more times this year. (i will already be in the april issue of scrapbook answers - in case you didn't know! *wink)
2. to try out and make a manufactures dt
3. be invited to teach a class at a lss or convention
4. finish tucker's t-ball album, cheer album, and new york album
5. clean organize and create a fun work enviroment for scrapbooking

how is that to get me started? big goals i know, i can do it though! can you make a living scrapbooking? something i love to do and a hobby that has given me the bestest buddies a girl could ever have.
i don't want to be famous! *wink (but would take it if it came to that) just want to be known!
