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 Scrapbooking.com 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.

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.
