Name: Donna Sonmor

Here is a link to her site:
Q. How did you get into Digital Scrapbooking?

I've always been a very artistic, creative person. My daughter married an American boy (long story but it's the best love story you'll ever hear) on such short notice in December 2009 that none of his family were able to get passports to attend, and only my husband, our son & myself were there for her side of the family. There were very few photos. I decided that the best Christmas gift for his family and our family would be a scrapbook of the pictures that we did have. I knew that I would never be able to make 12 traditional scrapbooks so I looked into making a photo book. I started in March 2010 with a free version of Digital Scrapbook Artist 2, found some tutorials online and taught myself the basics, and the book was ready to print in late September. I've since upgraded from DSA2 and now I mostly use PSE9 but I also have PSCS5 which I'm teaching myself to use. The photo book turned out very nice and everybody who has seen it loves it, although when I look at it now I cringe! My style has definitely changed and my skills have improved a lot in the year since then!

Q. What brought you to Kellybell Designs?

I had a lot of Disney photos to scrap and I stumbled onto the MouseScrappers website somehow. I started seeing some amazing LOs and took note of the designers being credited. Kelly was one designer whose kits I loved, and I developed a large collection of them pretty quickly. I remember feeling very jealous of the talented CT members she had because I thought they were so lucky to be able to play with her kits!
Q. What has been your best moment as a member of Kelly's Team?

Oh gosh, how can I choose?! I'm serious - I've only been here 6 months but there have been so many best moments! How about the day that I was invited to join Kelly's team as a Guest CT? It might have been how quickly I was welcomed to the team by everybody. Then there was the day that I was invited to stay with the team permanently. Maybe it was the day that I quit feeling shy and inadequate, and started feeling confident that I belonged here. Or how about the day that I realized that all of us girls are not just a team of strangers -- we're friends and we all truly care about each other. I think that the last one is the one I'll go with! I love this team! We have the best team, we each have our strengths that we bring to the scrapping part of the team; but most of all every one of the girls is awesome, and we've got each others' backs.

Q. In addition to being a member of the team .. tell us a little about you.
I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 26 years, but we've been together for 30 years. We have two wonderful "adults" now (can't call them kids anymore!) - our son is 23, and our daughter is 21 and married to a man I adore and consider to be my own son. I live in the middle of Canada, in Winnipeg, where we have to deal with short hot summers and long cold winters. I was in an accident 3 years ago that forced me to retire but I used to manage a small florist shop before that. I have always had an artistic streak in me, but until I discovered digi scrapping I didn't know how to let that artist out. I love to travel and have been to 6 Canadian provinces, 42 American states, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, and Colombia. We love to road trip through the USA and we've just discovered that we also love to cruise. This fall we plan to combine our two loves by taking a 12000 km road trip and a 4 day cruise to the Bahamas. By the end of this year, we'll have visited 49 states, with only Alaska left to visit -- which we'll do next summer, and we'll have added the Bahamas to the list of countries we've visited. Oh and we're having a mid-life crisis... we just bought a Honda Goldwing motorcycle - can't wait for our first road trip on it!

Q. What is by far your favorite kit here at Kellybell Designs?

Boy you really like to ask the hard questions! That's kind of like asking which one of your kids is your favourite. I get really excited when I see Kelly introduce the princess-y kits, but I think I love her absolutely stunning Blooming in Adversity kit the most.

Q. What are your favorite layouts?

I think that these are probably my favorite LO's so far, both made with Blooming in Adversity. I love how drastically different that one kit can look:
