Paper Crafting with our LITTLE Artists - a HOP of sorts

Recently, one of my favorite sites, Sketch Support, had their designer's children do the scrapping!  I was so inspired by this, I decided to make this week's challenge about the little crafters in our lives...
Here is a picture of my "LITTLE" crafter.  On the day I am composing this challenge, he has turned 18.  This photo is from last summer, when he shared one of his creations with his "idol" - Tim Holtz.  Tim REFUSED to sign Noah's case until it had NOAH's signature.  Noah learned that all artists should sign their work!

Noah created this case during a class
with visiting instructor Sara Hanlon,
from Fifth Child Studio, at
Croppinsville, in Collinsville, OK.
I would love to see you ask your favorite little crafter the following questions, and then share a picture of their favorite project(s).  To enter our HOP, post to your blog the questionnaire and the project(s) and then come back here and share a link to your blog post in our comments area.  One lucky LITTLE artist will get $20 for crafting, along with a little bag of sweet Easter treats.  There will also be a little something for one lucky reader - so I'll be checking for comments on all our participating entries.
Do you like to scrapbook, or make cards?  
Actually, I like to alter items, and make ATCs.  I used to scrapbook, but I haven't done it in a while.  I do make cards for friend's birthdays and stuff.
What do you like about scrapbooking or cardmaking?
I love giving handmade items, and receiving them.  They are extra special.  There is a lot of time, effort and love that goes into each project.
How much does your Mom scrapbook or make cards?
She occasionally stops to cook, clean, bead, or play with us.
What is your favorite color?
Shades of blue.
What is your favorite scrapbooking or cardmaking supply?
I love Distress Inks.
What is your best tip for other scrapbookers or cardmakers?
Have fun.  Don't be afraid to make mistakes.
We look forward to seeing your LITTLE artist's projects and hearing all about them.  If your LITTLE artist is all grown up, we don't mind, we'd still love for you to share!
