Here is a little more about Gina… in her own words,

“Hi, I’m Gina and a mother of two children, Marisa who is 7 and Tristan who is 2. I named him after Brad Pitt’s character in Legends of the Fall. I have been married for 14 years this coming October. I lived in Sarasota, FL since 2001. I started out my digi/scrapping hobby now career with paper scrapping back in 2003. I worked part time at a scrapbook store and was on the design team. I have always loved computers and before I switched my major in college to Fashion Buying and Design I majoring in Advertising with Graphic Arts. That was before it was on computers though. So when I found out about digital scrap-booking in 2007, I naturally switched over. I ended up over the years being on 11 CT’s and at the end of last summer I decided I wanted to design. I am pretty much self taught with PS and now just starting to learn Illustrator. But last November when I debuted as a guest designer, it was just templates. Only recently did I start designing kits. I am still learning and love it when I find out a new tip or trick or way of doing something in PS. I use CS 5 for both PS and Illustrator. I also use Art Rage and Repper. I can draw but not very well, so that is a goal of mine to try to draw more myself. Besides digi, I love to make jewelry and have a store at Etsy and I love reading. just got a Kindle earlier this year and am so very happy with it. I was lucky enough to go to a digi convention this past March in Vegas and will go again this coming March. Since I also work a full time 40 hour a week job, I cherish spending time with my two kiddos and only spend time on my digi after they go to bed, which means very late nights for me and hardly any sleep. I am have been so fortunate to have made some truly remarkable and lasting friendships with some of the girls I have met online through this wonderful hobby!”

Take a look at some of her Delicious Goodies!!
