pink lady spotlight: meet Natascha

Hello everyone! I sure hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Do you ever wonder who all those fabulous, creative ladies are that make all those gorgeous layouts for designers? Would you like to know how they started scrapping, which elements they like best, what software they use and how they ended up in a CT?

Well I do. That is one of the reasons I started interviewing members from my CT: the Pink Ladies! Another reason is that I think they all deserve to have the spotlight pointed at them because they all ROCK!!!

Meet Pink Lady Natascha
1. How and when did you start digital scrapbooking?  
Ohh that is a hard question, cause I really have no idea when I started making layouts! I started making tags and lessons found on the internet and from there I started making pages...maybe like 3 years ago (thinking out loud here)

2. How and when did you end up in a CT/ CT’s?
I think I stumbled upon a designers blog about 3 years ago, a Dutch designer and she was looking for some members and I actually got in after I applied and after that, well I have been applying like crazy (nooo I am not a stalker LOL) and some took me in their team and some not and some even asked me themselves ;)

3. How long have you been on my CT? 
About 8 months now...ohh time really flies that's for sure!! (have to confess, I had to look it up) I really thought it was shorter * sorry* hahaha

4. What software do you use? What type of camera?  
Okay, okay, I know...I am way behind on my software, but I still work with PSP! I kinda like that program and I just can't get use to PSE...I only use that for saving my pages for the web at the moment. And camera...I use a funky orange Sony Cyber-Shot (SteadyShot) at the moment.

5. How would you describe your style?
I have to admit that I am a huge template addict, so you will find that a lot in my gallery...but you can say that I am a huge fan of clustering and a lot of paper layers too!

6. What is your favourite scrapbooking item, something you turn too again and again?
Leaves!! Definitely!!! And patterned papers, love to use them in the background! Ohh and off course...templates!!

7. What is your favourite Pink Reptile product and why?
That's a tough one, cause all of your kits are awesome Mirjam! But if I had to like really choose one it would be Happy days! (Alpha, Elements, Papers). I just love the colour combination of them and since fall is like my favourite season...I think I made my best page with those awesome things for you Mirjam.

8. Just for fun… tell us all about a quirky habit of yours! 
A quirky habit? Uhhh let me think LOL I think it would be when I get out of bed early in the morning, it goes like this: Visiting toilet, put on my computer, make myself some coffee and then I really need a cigarette!! Ohh and I hate it when someone changes things I have done in the house!!

9. Name 5 things that you can touch RIGHT NOW from where you are sitting, no cheating! 
Only 5 things??? My medicine, a bottle of Pepsi Max, my agenda, my camera and my purse.

10. Silliest thing you have ever done…
I think it would be the day that we overslept and realizing there there were no classes at school after we stood there for like 10 minutes!! We really rushed getting dressed and everything and I totally forgot that my little lady had the day off and we found out when a neighbour came to us and tell us.

11. Can you give us a tip on digital scrapbooking? 
A tip? And you are asking that to someone who still uses PSP? LOL I have no clue at all, sorry!!

Okay forget I asked! LOL
Anyway....thanks for braving it in the spotlight Natascha and giving us a chance to getting to know you!
