What inspired you to create this month's DST Gold Member kit?
I wanted to do a soft spring kit for the DST Gold Members
but I was looking for a color scheme. One morning I had to go out very early and
when I saw the sky with a mix of purple, blue and pink I knew I had found my
colors.

What is your favorite part or element of the kit?
I really like all the flowers
in it.

Tell us about your family:
I am a staying
at home mom. I have 3 daughters that are 9, 8 and our little surprised baby is
14 months old. I am a French Canadian.

How long have you been designing? What program(s) do you use?
I have been designing for 6 years now and I am working
on Photoshop CC.

What part of designing comes easiest to you (themes, colors, papers, elements?)
The colors and papers are the easiest for me. The Title is what is the most
difficult for me. I also like to have ideas from my creative team or customers.
It is always nice to have colors or theme requests.

What part of designing is most challenging to you?
To keep the mojo going and
to have originality.

What inspires you?
Everything is inspires me. It can be an activity I am doing
with my family, a color scheme I will see.

If you’re running low on design mojo, where do you go to kickstart your creativity?
I usually like to take a break from the PC, do something else for a
while. I also catch up on my daughters album. This is a huge help to get me
back on track.

What has been the greatest compliment you have received about your designs?
IWhen
people send me private message or email me to show me their layouts and that
they tell me how much they like it. When you see others memories being captured
with what you have created.

How much time do you allocate to designing in a typical week? 
I usually design
3-4 hours a day so I would say about 20 hours a week is to designing, promoting,
etc.

What is the latest you’ve ever stayed up to finish a design or scrap?
Oh before
I had my baby at time I did a sleepless night to design when I was really into
what I was creating.

Slippers or barefoot?
Barefoot.. always

Favorite TV show?
I am a huge Grey’s Anatomy Fan.

Where is the farthest you have been from home?
When I was younger I used to
travel a lot and didn’t mind being far from home. With my children it never happened
except when I gave birth that I was away from them for the night.
