Beth here with this week's spotlight on Sara. Check out her SSD gallery here!

1. What made you apply for Krystal Hartley's team?
I started stalking Krystal when she was still at SO, I just love her style.

2. What are your favorite types of products to work with (you can mention specific favorites, but I'd really like to know if you are a paper addict, brushes, doodles...whatever).
Alphas and date elements.

3. When do you scrap? Naptimes, after the kids go to bed?
At night and on weekends.

4. What are your strengths as a CTM?
I'm super organized! Weaknesses? I try to peek at ISO threads but I'm bad about doing it outside of SSD.

5. Show us your first page.
eww really?

6. How many times do you use a product?
Kits, usually once.

7. Do you scrap mainly for memory preservation or for creative fulfillment?
Memories! :)

No.. I love color.. but I like blue :)

11. What is your current favorite layout (that you made)?
Right now it's this one. Took about 4 hours :)

Paper blocking.

14. Do you know any digi scrappers in real life?
Yes.. I have met Heather Roselli and am hoping to meet some other girls this summer :)

15. Krystal's thinking about getting a Mac. Should she? Why or why not?
