Tagged Twice!

I have been tagged twice first my the lovely talented Deborah and secondly a lovely lady called Juliet whos cards are such a source of inspiration they have to be seen to be believed!

I have to answere some very difficult questions so here goes

If a movie was being made of your life who would you like to be cast to play yourself? and why?
Thats a tough one! I could think of two people who could play my parents instead, Jack and Vera Duckworth from Coronation street, they are just like them lol

You are spending a whole month on a desert island for charity and you have to choose your favourite celebrity to spend the first two weeks with & your least favourite celebrity to spend the second two weeks with, who would they be & why? I think Mel Gibson would be my choice of favorite celebrity to spend the first two weeks with and for the second two weeks my least favorite celeb would be David Platt from Corry. As long as he brings his iron bar with him then he can crack open all the coconuts!

What are your three favourite crafting products
Flowers, Ribbon, and stamps

If you could invent something to do anything what do you think it would be?
A food replicater like they have on Startreck. I hate cooking especially when trying to craft at the same time lol

What are the last three books that you read
Can't remember! It's been that long. I read a lot of magasines, I find it hard to concentrate reading books these days.

Qvc or create & Craft
C+C, when I first started crafting I found it fascinating but now it bores me a bit.

7. Docrafts or Dovecraft or DCWV
I like them all!

What is your claim to fame
I am going to be in Simply Cards and Papercraft on May 29th

Now I have to find 5 people that haven't been tagged before, which is going to be a bit difficult as these tags and awards are flying around quicker than a dose of chicken pocks!






Sorry Girls!

The "Arte Y Pico" award

I have been given these awards, this time by the lovely Sharon ( think I gave the make my day award to her last time lol) Anyway I was very pleased to recieve them and I am now supposed to pass them on to other members. The problem is my list of favorite blogs is not that long and most have already had them. So I am going to award these to everybody I "know" in the blogging world as I have gained so much inspiration from them and all the fabulous members on the Docrafts card making forum who have encouraged and spurd me on with my card making! Sorry for not playing the rules properly but these awards just keep going backwards and forwards!
