What is your favorite color(s) to work with? My favourite colours to work with are teal blue and turquoise.

 What would you say is your "fingerprint" on your scrapbook pages? (i.e., what do most of your pages have that make it your signature style?) I don't know if I have a 'signature' style but I can't seem to create a page with out using some kind of art medium on my background, i.e. paint, gesso, ink, mists, texture paste, pastels etc. I love working with any of these. The other thing I love doing is fussy cutting, so a lot of my pages have details that have been carefully cut out and layered.

What do you find most challenging when working on a layout? The thing I find most challenging when making a layout is making it appear 'complete' that all the elements combine together and look connected, rather than lots of separate embellishments floating on the page.

What is your favorite part about CSI--the colors, the stories, or the inspiration? My favourite part about CSI is the 'Inspiration'. It's those specific little details that really get me thinking and give my imagination a good work out. 

Confession time. Okay, fess up! What secret do you not want to admit but are willing to confess here? Before I go to sleep at night I think about layouts I'm working on, or ones I'm planning.     Sad but true.
