Guest On Spotlight: Louise Gannon-Forsyth of Southern Girls Challenge Blog

Hi, everyone!

I'm introducing a Scrapbooker on Creo by Lady Katutz' Guests On Spotlight.

My very 5th Guest on Spotlight is my former Boss, a co-Administrator at SGC, none other than our well-loved Lou of Southern Girls Challenge (SGC) Blog.  She works together with co-Administrator Tracy Jackson.

I've worked both with Lou and Tracy 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.

My work with Lou and the Southern Girls team helped me transition from paper traditional scrapbook LOs to mixed media layouts.  The clean lines are still there but my layouts were not as simple anymore.  It is indeed, a very nice team for me to transition with in my scrapbook art.

I also worked for them as a semi-Creative Writer, working my paper layouts with US online magazine.

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.

9 Short Questions and 1 Wrap-It Question:

1.  I would like to know your complete / full name and what you do.
Louise Gannon-Forsyth

2.  How did you get started in your craft?

I started Scrapbooking when I pregnant with my oldest son in 2005

3.  Where there previous or other arts and crafts that you delved with or are currently enjoying?

I took art at high school and did a bit of sewing but that was the extent of my crafting or Arty ness

4.  Do you have hidden crafts that you like and enjoy by yourself?

I enjoy lots of crafts and they are all hidden in the spare room, including my scrapbooking and cardmaking wink emoticon They include art journaling, sewing and beading.

5.  Amongst your crafts, which one did struck gold and became your main stint?  How did it help you?

I always return to scrapbooking when I hit a slump with my other crafts as I love that my kids enjoy looking at the albums.

6.  How many years have you been dealing with your craft?  Or with each of your crafts?

I have been scrapbooking for 10 years and cardmaking for 8. The others I am not too sure, the art journalling maybe 2?

7.  What is your main motivation or inspiration for indulging with your craft?

to be honest I have had so much going on with life in general that at the moment it is DT commitments or I probably wouldn't be crafting at all right now.

8.  Five years before, where were you in your craft?  Five years from now, what do you envision for your craft?

Who knows where i will be in 5 years, one thing I am sure of though I will have been kicked out of my warm sunny room into the dreary little office on the otherside of the house to make room for growing, hormonal teenagers.

9.  What are your major breakthroughs and milestones in relation to your craft or in the industry you are with?

Still waiting for a break through, maybe one day I will put something forward for publication that would be pretty awesome.

10.  Describe yourself and your craft in one short phrase, word or sentence.

One sentence or word - how about 3.... ECLECTIC and MESSY.
