Introducing my collab partner:
Ann aka StarSongStudio
A little about your background….
1 When did you start Designing?
My daughter introduced me to digital scrapbooking in 2009 and I was instantly addicted. She was a great teacher and encouraged me to sign up for various courses, workshops and publications. That quickly evolved into designing and I began selling at the end of 2010.
2. Where do you live?
I live outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the US.
3 Tell us about your family ie, hubby, kids, etc?
I live with my husband Clemens, a talented photographer who provides me with lots of photos for extracting elements and creating backgrounds and textures, and my King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, Vinnie, pictured above. I have two adult daughters and two grandsons, all of whom show up regularly along with their dogs in my scrapbook layouts.
Getting to know you……
4 Do you have a ‘real’ job besides designing?
I’m a professional astrologer and have practiced and taught astrology for 40 years. Along the way I’ve had lots of “real” jobs: I’ve taught (kindergarten, high school, community college), worked as a newspaper editor, bookkeeper, supervised vocational programs for people with disabilities, to name a few.
I’m incredibly lucky that the two things I have been and continue to be intensely passionate about (astrology and digital designing) are my real jobs now.
My design name StarSongStudio was chosen because it represents the two careers that make my heart sing.
5 What is your favourite hobby besides Digi Scrapping?
I adore reading. I usually have 4 or 5 books going simultaneously.
6 What is one of your pet peeves?
I don’t understand why humans can’t live in peace with one another and why so many people are so intolerant of other people’s beliefs and choices.
7 If you could travel anywhere where would you go?
I really want to go to Manchu Picchu. Since I get altitude sickness at half the height, it doesn’t make a lot of sense, but hey, dreams don’t have to make sense.
8. Tell us something about you that no one knows.
Can’t think of anything that at least some people don’t know about so I’ll just share that I use to own a Victorian Bed and Breakfast, which no doubt explains my leanings toward vintage designs.

Show us 3 of your favorite CT Layouts
That’s like asking me to choose my favorite child or grandchild. I have the most amazing CT team. Truly, I’m not exaggerating. So choosing is out of the question. I will just pick a few layouts to give you an idea.
