Dspd Scraplift the May 2010 Spotlight: Sandy aka sands_healy

Member Spotlight: Sandy a.k.a sands_healy

This month’s super-talented, super-star, member spotlight is DSP’s very own Sands of the Desert.

Sandy describes herself as: easy going, and says she wears her heart on her sleeve, “which sometimes isn’t a good thing.” Understandably, her family provides inspiration for many of the gorgeous layouts in her gallery.

One look at some of her outstanding layouts though, and you get a glimpse of the person who also says: “I’m a perfectionist and very critical of my work and myself. I’m a very loyal and reliable person.”

Looking for some inspiration? Then a good place to start looking would be by visiting Sandy’s gallery. Find out more about this interesting lady on the Spotlight Page and then take part in the Scraplift the Spotlight Challenge:

SCRAPLIFT THE SPOTLIGHT CHALLENGE

Choose one of those gorgeous layouts and "lift" it! Copy it, giving our Spotlight credit, and add your own photos, kit of your choice, journaling. Make it your own but inspired by her!!

Post a link to your scraplift layout in this thread and you could be a random winner of a DSP store coupon!!

Layouts Due by the end of May!


---------------------------------------------------------------------

What is SCRAPLIFTING?

A scraplift is basically the act of copying ideas and designs from another persons layout to use in your own pages. Designs or ideas can be copied in whole or in part - You can take the whole thing, or just some aspects of the layout, and use it to make your own.



Congratulations, Sands, and thank you for sharing your talent with us as the May DSP Member Spotlight.

Wow! Congrats sands!!! Hard to believe that you have not been Spotlight before now. I am sure there is no way I can do justice to scraplifting a LO to your standard but I am sure going to have fun trying. I am delighted that you have received the honour for this month!!!

As the website Spotlight Page will only be updated later, I am posting Sands's information here temporarily:


Member Spotlight
Our DSP Member Spotlight for May is Sandy a.k.a. sands_healy a.k.a. Sands of the Desert
Check out her gallery.



DSP - How long have you been scrapping?
Sandy – I started digital scrapping in August 2006, when I found DSP. I had never paper scrapped before but was always in awe of people who did.

DSP - What do you like best about digital scrapbooking?
Sandy – I really like that there are no papers lying around and that I can take it anywhere with me. Be it to the neighbours next door or overseas. All you need is you laptop and possibly a portable drive.

DSP - What drew you to this site?
Sandy – It was one of the first sites I came across for digital scrapbooking. I had never heard about it before but on a friend’s suggestion I googled the term. I really loved the fact that there are quality items in the freebie gallery, and how friendly the members were. Very willing to help and make suggestions.

DSP - Do you have a favorite challenge here at DSP?
Sandy – No, I don’t have an outright favourite.

DSP - What is your most "off the wall" layout?
Sandy – That would have to be my “Reflections of You” Page. It was a new technique I was trying out and the outcome was just superb. I loved it. So did Somerset Digital Studio since they published it as well.

DSP - Do you ever experience "scrappers block", and if so how do you overcome it?
Sandy – Oh yes!!! No questions about that. I normally go through the galleries for inspiration, and if I then can’t get inspired, I look to the Monthly Sketch Challenge to get the juices flowing again.

DSP - What is your favorite thing to scrap about?
Sandy – I really love to scrap my landscape photos from the area where we live at the moment, and a close second would be my children, then my dive photos!

DSP - If you were a scrapbook element, what would you be?
Sandy – Definitely a paper clip. I like to be in control and organized, and the paper clip is symbolic of holding things together.

DSP - What part of the site do you spend the most time in, other than your gallery?
Sandy – Mostly the Granny Thread. Those women are just amazing. You can go through all your emotions in one sitting. After the granny thread, I spend time on commenting on my buddies LO’s.

DSP - What other hobbies or activities do you enjoy other than scrapping?
Sandy – I think my first passion is photography. Secondly it would be scuba diving, and we like to try and do that at least 2 or 3 times a month. If we are scuba diving, we are exploring the mountains in our 4WD, with me taking photos.

DSP - Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
Sandy – DSP is my second home. Living as an expat in a foreign country isn’t easy, and people come and go at a rapid rate. At least with the friends that I have made at DSP they are always at the end of my keyboard. I never dreamed that I would travel half way across the globe to meet people I had only ever chatted to on the computer.
