  Hello There 
I am delighted you have joined  
"Get to Know Me" Blog Hop!
For this Hop the DT were asked to create a LO 
& to answer 10 fun (??)  questions
about themselves..
the sketch was designed by Sandi Clarkson
designer & co creator at SOUS
my take
I tipped the sketch sideways to suit the paper I chose, 
it is from the Websters Papers range 'All About Me'
Now to the 10 fun questions!!!
1a. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be? 
1b.  Why???? 
Green is a symbol of hope, renewal and peace.
2. What would people be surprised to learn about you ?
I danced on tables in a former occupation
3. What 5 things are always on your craft table?
my small guillotine, paper trimmer, DS tape, scissors & jelly beans.
4. Your go-to embellishment is?
always ribbon
5. What is your all-time favourite crafting tool?
 my guillotine.. the first tool I bought & still use 10 years later.
6. tell us about your family..first in one word, then in a sentence.
one word .... different, 
a sentence... good heavens !!!  not possible, I need a book!!! 
however they are lovable & I love them dearly.

to tour Ireland & Italy
8. Who is your favourite crafty company?
