Guest On Spotlight: Tracy Jackson of Southern Girls Challenge Blog

Hi, everyone!

I'm introducing a Cardmaker and Card Designer on Creo by Lady Katutz' Guests On Spotlight.

My very 3rd Guest on Spotlight is my former Boss, a co-Administrator at SGC, none other than our well-loved Tracy of Southern Girls Challenge (SGC) Blog.  She works together with co-Administrator Louise (Lou) Forsythe.

I've worked both with Tracy and Lou for 1 year from September 6, 2012 to September 5, 2013.  I worked mainly as their Design Team Member for paper traditional scrapbook layouts. From producing or creating scrapbook layouts to scrapbook LOs for Southern Girls, it was a fun design team member stint for me to be with them.

I would never forget working with a few of Southern Girls' sponsors when I could accommodate digital images on my scrapbook layouts.  Tracy is the Sponsor Coordinator of Southern Girls Challenge Blog.  I went non-traditional, not just consuming normal scrapbook embellishments but I poured on my frustrations in baking - in my makings of becoming supposedly a Pastry Chef.  So, baking supplies made their way to my Design Team Scrapbook projects together with the sponsored digital images for Southern Girls Challenge Blog with Lou and Tracy.  

They're a very happy bunch of Aussies and New Zealanders to work with.

Below are the prepared questions and her corresponding answers to each:  
I hope you get to know her thru this post of mine about her.

Only my paintings. Love to have crafty afternoons with friends.
