Meet Patty B!

If you have looked around GDS chances are you have seen Patty's creations. I enjoyed reading Patty's answers and I think you will too. Congrats Patty, our Scrapper of the Week!

1). How and when did you get into digi-scrapping? - Believe it or not, I started playing around with making pages in Microsoft paint! I had to make everything myself, and it was pretty basic stuff. Then, I heard of a program called Photoshop Elements, and about a year ago, purchased the program. I learned pretty quickly, because I watched every video tutorial I could find.

2). Where are you from and tell us a little about yourself; perhaps about your family? – My husband Terry and I live near Blair, Nebraska. We’ve been married for 15 years, we do not have children, so we adore two cats instead! I grew up in Omaha, and in Blair we are close enough to enjoy the amenities that Omaha has to offer, yet far enough away for peace and quiet. We garden extensively, growing most of our own veggies and fruit, and I can and freeze our harvests, as well as dry some things as well.

3). If you could travel to any place in the world where would you go, with whom and why? –I would love to see Alaska, and some day dream of going to the Colorado mountains again. I think it would be great to explore these places with Terry, and enjoy wide open spaces that are not corn fields, LOL!

4). What will you purchase with your winning coupon? - I’m gonna have to do some serious shopping! I love Debra’s stuff… but I believe I have all of it J.

5). What's your very favorite food? -Nebraska Beef. Especially ribsteak on the grill, mmmmmm.

6). How much time to you digi-scrap per week? - More than I’d like to admit!! I try to get in as many challenges as I can, I learn so much by doing them. Probably at least… a couple of hours every day that I can.

7). What program do you use? - I’ve been using PSE 10, but just this week I got Photoshop CS5, and there is going to be a learning curve. I would like to someday be a designer, so this is the best next step for me right now.

8). What would you rather have, more time or more money? - That’s a hard one, I guess more time would be my answer. I love being in my garden, and the spring and summer seem to go by so very quickly.

9). What do you love most about digi-scrapping? - Making beautiful pages with my pictures and the stories behind them, to print out and share, and enjoy. No mess involved with digi-scrapping, and I can share them on line as well. With “real” paper scrapping I was always wishing I could move something, after I had affixed it on the background. With digi – no problem!!

10). What layout are you most proud of creating and why (share a link, please)? -Well, isn't this good timing! I am most proud of the layout that I just did for the round three in the Supreme Team Contest XIII. Here's the link to the LO: http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com...0&ppuser=29776
I've come a long way in only a year, I'm proud of it becuase I expressed what I wanted to, I was using an amazingly beautiful kit. It makes me smile, and remember the moment.

I hope this is OK. Thanks so much!
