What inspired you to create this month's DST Gold Member kit?
I had done al lot of girly pink/purple kits recently… so something totally different was in order.

I love flowers, and grunge.. lots of grunge.
Tell us about your family
I have been married for 32 years, we have one daughter, who has moved back home. I have lived in the same town and house since I was 7. We have one cat, and I babysit my surrogate granddaughter 1 day a week.
How long have you been designing for? What program(s) do you use?
I have been designing for about 6 years. I started out using CS2, then went to CS3, then CS5, now using CC15.
What part of designing comes easiest to you? (themes, colors, papers, elements?)
Papers are the easiest for me to create.
What part of designing is most challenging to you?
Masks, I love using them, but struggle to create them, the other thing that is difficult for me is I love grunge, and I find it hard to create anything that hasn’t got some grunge to it.. I don’t do “clean” well.
What has been the greatest compliment you have received about your designs?
I love when I see my designs used. That always gives me a buzz.
Link us to a layout that you have seen using your work that just left you awestruck.
I love this.. Wishes & Dreams is my favourite kit.
How much time do you allocate to designing in a typical week?
A lot.. the days I babysit I don’t get any computer time.
What is the latest you’ve ever stayed up to finish a design or scrap?
About midnight, I try not to leave things too late.
What’s your favorite snack to have handy while you design?
Dark chocolate… or chips.
Slippers or barefoot?
Favorite TV show?
Where is the farthest you have been from home?
