I don’t keep a wish list and ever since I started with this questionnaire I have been thinking what I wanted most. I can’t remember anything specific, but I would LOVE to remodel my kitchen from scratch and have a state of the art one! I like to cook and having a gorgeous kitchen with everything handy would be a blast!!!
2. What is your designing routine, i.e. do you get a snack, put on music, get organized and then work on a kit until its finished or do you pop in and out as time allows?
I usually design in front of the TV and I always have a movie or some other show going on while I work. No snacks, lol. I save those for when I am done with designing and get a book instead.
3. When you scrap, do you use your own products?
Sadly, I don’t have time to scrap anymore, but I make it a point to create two layouts with each kit I finish, so technically I only scrap with my own products. Does this qualify?
4. What is your all-time favorite product OR what is your best selling product(s)?
I always have a hard time picking a favorite. A few come to mind, though. I love Silver Serenade, Rainbow Bridge, Circle of Life and a couple others. My bestselling kit is The Winery.
5. What are your reasons or motivations for digital scrapbooking?
I don’t think I could point anything specific. If it was just something that I love, I would only be creating kits for my girls, my husband, my mom and my puppies. I guess anything can motivate us. There are evenings when I am asleep and suddenly I just wake up and think that I should create a particular kit, and it is almost completely created in my mind. It’s the weirdest thing!
6. What is the best food you ever ate? Describe.
Probably pasta and risottos. I make an artichoke and ham risotto that is to die for, lol. I love Pizzas too. Then there is the Brazilian national food that is “Feijoada”(black beans with sausages, served with rice and some other side dishes) and I love it.
7. Where is your “happy place?”
That one is easy. It is our country home, a true paradise on earth, so quiet and cozy! In fact I am a total homebound so I am always happy when I am home!
8. If you won the lottery, how would you spend the winnings?
Besides helping my family get what they need, I wanted to build a large shelter for abandoned dogs where they would be loved, cared for and live a happy life with people that would give them the all the care and happiness they are entitled to. A beautiful place attended only by people that really loved dogs!
9. If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would you chose and what would you want to talk about?
That would be my Mom. Just having her arms around me would be heaven! If it was someone not related, then it would be Placido Domingo and I would have him just sing for me. How cool would that be!
10. What else should we know about you?
I guess I am always happy and cheerful. I love learning new things and I love each day of my life. I always wake up in anticipation of the new day and even if the day is pure routine I still love it. The days just fly by me and I can’t understand people who complains that the days are so slow! I do tend to find joy even in the smallest things! Is that unique? hmmmmm…..

My name is Vicki and I design as Dana’s Footprint Digital Design. I have been a digital scrapper for going on 4 years now and a Digital designer for nearly 3 years. I live in a place called Grafton on the far north coast of eastern NSW Australia. I have been married for 28 years and am mum to one daughter. I love designing and get my inspiration from all sorts of things, I love colour and pretty things and can get lost browsing for hours.. I have always been involved in some form of craft or another, I also love to read and make miniatures.
Check out all the beautiful kits in her store here all on sale 40% off through the end of August.
I’m Jill, SAHM (and Zumba® Instructor) to 2 girls, 13 & 14 (the terrible teens), 3 dogs and a wonderful husband, currently living in Zachary, Louisiana (I say currently as we’ve done a bit of relocating between the East Coast and Texas over the past 16 years).
I’ve been designing for over 2 years (probably 3…time seems to fly by so fast!). I absolutely love it and wish there were more hours (and fewer interruptions) in the day to accomplish all that I want to do.
When I’m not designing, you can find me teaching Zumba® classes 5 times a week, learning new choreography or sneaking in a mindless game (or 10) on Facebook….but I’m pretty much always on the computer from sun up to sun down!
My little secret? 2 years ago I earned my 1st degree black belt in Tae Kwan Do (after 6 years of training in Dallas and Virginia)…at the age of 46!

Hi! I’m Fran and I’m a stay at home mom. I have a 9 year old son named Sam that I scrap about all the time. I’ve been digital scrapping since 2006 and I just adore it! I love to create new things and I love playing with colors. It’s like a big digital crayon box. Since I had so much fun scrapping I decided it was time to try my hand at designing. I hope you enjoy my designs as much as I love seeing your layouts with them!
