Introducing Our Digital Design Team Member!

How are your design team entries going? They are starting to pile into my inbox and I can tell you that judging this is going to be tough! I think our guest artists will have a tough job judging the fortnightly prizes too, there are so many talented scrappers out there! Don't forget that we are looking for one paper and one digital design team member, entries close 12 midnight WST Monday 30th April, for more details see here.

As I am sure you have gathered from our design team search Sketches Oz will be featuring digital as well as paper scrappers so I'd like to introduce you to our digital design team member-

Courtney is 37.5 years old, married to Mark and has two son's (her handsome twosome) Tim and Jacob. She works part time in an office close to home and in school hours for which she feels very fortunate. Courtney loves the ladies she has met through scrapbooking over the years and she says that ‘you can't meet anyone better than scrapbookers’.

Courtney tried lots of different crafts in the early 90's but when she started scrapbooking she knew that she was hooked for life. Courtney has been a digital scrapbooker since April 2005, she stumbled across a Photoshop disc on ebay, ordered it and it then arrived with no instructions so she just played and played until she worked it out. ‘I am still learning’ she says.
Courtney’s digital work has been published in Scrapbooking Memories, For Keeps, Scrapbook Creations and Creating Keepsakes. She won the Adobe 2006 Scrappy Awards for the section titled "Holiday" and was on a digital design team last year for an overseas digital designer. She was also asked by her son's school to do the graduation year book for 2006.
Courtney was a paper scrapper for 8 years prior to becoming a digital scrapper, she says ‘I love digital scrapbooking and I think my style tends to emulate a paper scrapper more than being overly graphic. I think my style is also ever changing, I don't tend to have similar pages as each one I create I want it to be unique. I love digital scrapbooking and find it really relaxes me and gives me purpose in life as I am creating memories to be remembered and art to be enjoyed. My goals lately have been to journal more and use those not so nice photo's - as there are plenty of those.’
