So Happy Together! ~ Stuck On U Sketches "Get To Know Me" Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!!!  I hope you're enjoying the SOUS "Get To Know Me" Blog Hop so far!!!  You should have arrived here from the very talented Faith-Abigail's Blog and if you didn't, you need to go to SOUS and get all of the details and the list (in order) of the participants.. and then just follow the blog path and have fun!!!!

Here's my layout about myself... Actually this is me and my husband...
I titled it "So Happy Together" after the Beatles song with the same title...  and I think the lyrics from the song are just perfect for us...

Here is this weeks awesome sketch designed by our talented Sandi Clarkson...
Lots of possibilities here....  I hope you get to play along with us!!


Here are a few close ups....

Here are some fussy cut roses that I cut and layered over the corner of a Wooden Picture Frame, Doily, and Prima Say It In Pearls.  You can also see some of the Distressed Edges and a Frame I made using the MS Vintage Floral Border/Corner Punches.



Distressed Edges, Hidden Journaling Tag with SU Ribbon stapled to it, MS Vintage Floral Corner Punch for the circle, Part of the Doily, Wooden Scallop Frame, and MS Vintage Floral Border Frame...



Here are the lyrics of the song.., Distressed Edges, Dusty Attic Flutterbies, MS Vintage Floral Corner Punch for the circle, Part of the Doily, Wooden Scallop Frame, MS Vintage Floral Border Frame, and Prima Say It In Pearls...






10 questions about me!!!

1A) If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
I think I would be brown....
  1B) Why?
Because brown is a neutral color, it doesn't stand out, and can go with most all other colors. 


2. What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I've always had an inferiority complex/lack of self confidence....  The whole time I was growing up I've always worried about what other people thought of me...  I know this will be hard for some of you to believe,  but I'm a very shy person...  Just thinking about having to talk to a group of people literally makes me sick....

3. What 5 things are always on your crafting table?
1) ATG Tape Runner
2) Ruler
3)X-acto Knife
4) Scissors
5) Paper Cutter

4. Your go-to embellishment is ...
Prima Bling.... (Say It In Pearls/Say It In Crystals)
And/or
Martha Stewart Punches
5. What is your all-time favorite crafting tool?
My little cheap distressing tool....

6A). Tell us about your family .. first in one word.
Strong!!
6B). Then in a sentence or two.
Because of the bad economy 26 years ago, my husband and I, along with our 2 very small children left our home town.  Six months later my husband was fortunate enough to meet the man who he is currently working for.  ..   I know it was hard on our children growing up away from their grandparents and cousins, but it also provided them the chance in becoming the strong individuals they are today...  and I am so proud of both of them... But, I don't think we could have accomplished any of this without strong family values!!

7. What is your dream vacation?

Anything to do with nature...the fewer the people, the better..


8. Who is your favorite crafty company?
This week ~ Kaisercraft ....  :o)
next week ????

9. Tell us a bit about your crafty style.
Gosh, I'm not so sure  my style has a name... but if I had to name it, I would go with grungy..  I love distressed inky edges...


10. Where do you live?
I am most definitely a country girl!!!

WOW, I hope I didn't bore you!!! LOL  Some of those questions really made me stop and think about my past...
