blog promts from UKS

If you could find out the truth about one thing, what would it be?

I've been reading some other blogs from the blog prompt and we all seem to have deep questions.

The one that did give me inspiration was about the chalked figures in the English hillsides. I don't know if any other country has anything like these but it lead me to think about Stonehenge.

Why is Stonehenge there? What was it for originally? Are any of the theroies even close to it? I have never been to Stonehenge and it is somewhere I'd love to see. I am awed by the fact that our ancestors without the aid of machinary were able to construct this monument.


Catching up with this one
"What technology/tools do you use in scrapping and/or your life in general? How has it changed your life? If it were gone tomorrow, how would it affect you? Which of the new technologies/tools do you embrace, or do you treat them as a necessary evil?"

I couldn't live without my PC. I had withdrawl symptoms when I was in Newcastle even though I had a laptop with me I had no internet access. I do a fair bit of scrapbooking on the 'puter even if it's just making a title. The other thing I use it for a lot is page design. My basic page ideas are mapped out before I cut.

I have also fallen in love with my digital camera. Something I thought I'd never do, but I love the instantness of it. I much prefer the quality of the film camera still but for family stuff the digi wins.

For none techy tools I've just bought a 12x12 cutting mat. It's brill and fits in my crop bag so well, mucho easier than lugging a great big A3 mat. Also my Silent Setter. If that was taken away from me I'd go mad as I'd have to go back to banging!

I don't know if I could scrap without my PC I wouldn't be able to put titles on my pages for sure. I could just about cope without the digital camera but only because I have 4 film cameras!
