I was Interviewed by Scrap Friends! Inspired to Scrap!! By Me?!?

Hi there everyone!  How's the weekend been?  Over for some of my 
Eastern friends already & still a bit more left for you lucky ducks
 in the West.  Here in Africa I am slap bang in the middle of the world, 
yet so often I feel very isolated & like a stranger on my own continent.

  The internet connects us all though & it looks like mine is semi-
back-on-track now.  It has been playing nicely most of the weekend
 & I have tried to play catch-up but I still have a list as long as
 both arms of people I owe a bloggy visit!   I will keep at it & get
 around the world eventually!   Meanwhile I have something 
very interesting to share today!!

My sweet friend Lizzy Hill sent me a questionairre a while ago, 
 to fill in & get back to her.  It took quite a bit of thinking
 to get all that into words & did make me wonder how on earth 
I would fare in an ''off-the-cuff'" interview in real life!  
(Or "Live on Ustream" in the cyber-world)
 but it was fun & thought-provoking!  Thanks Lizzy!!

Scrap Friends is a GREAT online store in Queensland, Australia
& is run by one very organised lady, Angela, who did a FANTASTIC
job compiling all my images into the fab photo-strips you see between 
the text.  Scrap Friends has  AMAZING stock - chipboard from Poland,
European papers & the fabulous papers of ILS along with many others!

Scrap Friends has a really interesting blog that you can subscribe
to via e mail, which I personally find very handy, and Angela creates
really artsy sketches a couple of times a month along with lovely
colour palettes for colour challenges too.  You can play along for 
prizes and Guest Designer opportunities too.

 Take a look at the blog HERE and you can read my interview HERE.

  I am so grateful for this fabulous opportunity & would love it if
 you would pop over to Scrap Friends to take a look!  I will publish
my interview here later in the week (for the sake of good record keeping)
but I do have a text tutorial up there too - for this layout.  At last!
