I so wanted to go on the cruise...but maybe next time. My 10 answers are:

2. Cut Your Way is new to me and would like to try out their products.

3. My favorite Canadian sponsor (eh) is Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine as they have a wonderful informative magazine and I always like seeing friends of mine being published.

4. I would love to see a cruise in the fall, preferably in September from Vancouver to Alaska, or a cruise from perhaps Halifax down the eastern seaboard with a stop in NYC for some awesome shopping and photo opps.

5. My favorite port for this cruise would be The Grand Cayman.

6. I love the Bind-it-all, as I have one and use it a lot.

9. Kiki Art - Arantza Izurrategui from Argentina
The Inspired Scrapper, Sonja McLean from B.C.

10. Jill Hildebrand (Nikki Silvis) who by the way is a fabulous teacher and lady that I have had before and

Jennifer Reynard said...

Answer to question #2. I have never
used ScraPerfect products. It sounds
intriguing!

Jennifer Reynard said...

My this takes a long time when you have to keep looking up the question repeatedly!
My short memory is for the birds!!Anyways,...
Question #3, favourite sponsor should
read sponsors for me! :) Absolutely
love Canadian Scrapbooker, Monday Night Class, Harmonie and Craft and
Glitz.

Jennifer Reynard said...

Question #4, where would I like to go for the next Crop and Cruise and
when. Well, considering the Reynard's current budget (LOL),
Christy Riopels craft room would
suit me fine at any time of the night or day.!! I'm sure a bunch
of us gals could all cram into her guest room and we could fill her bathtub with warm water and bubbles to wash the distress ink off of our hands. Seriously, Hawaii would be
nice, actually, anywhere warm sounds good right now!

Jennifer Reynard said...

Question #5, I think Jamaica would
be a lovely port to stop at.
Never been, but have seen beautiful
pictures.
