Bio: My name is Lea Lawson and I live in beautiful Missoula, Montana. I have been married to my husband Josh for almost 8 years, and we have two of the cutest dogs in the world; a yorkie named Bailey and a cocker spaniel named Sadie. I recently made a career change, and attended an intense photography program last year from June through October. I have since started my own photography business with my focus on fine art wedding and portraiture. You can view my photography at ellephotographymt.com if you would like! On the paper crafting side of things, I started out scrapbooking when I was 18 years old. Since that time I have made tons of fabulous friends, been published many times in major scrapbooking magazines, was Creating Keepsakes 2007 Hall of Fame winner, and a 2008 Scrapbooker of the Year finalist. About 4 years ago I found the wonderful world of card making, and haven't looked back since. I don't actually scrapbook much any more, but my love for card making grows every day. The card making world is such a fun one, very tight knit, and we are always cheering each other on. I am very excited to be part of the GCD Studios team...I can't wait to get started!! http://leascupcakesandsunshine.blogspot.com/
How did you feel to get the call? When I got the call I had assumed they were already finished. Obviously, I hadn't been checking out the blog to see what was going on!! So, a mysterious number pops up on my phone...but that isn't uncommon lately as I have been starting up a business. I answer it, and this cute voice asks for me...and I pretty much knew what the call was regarding after that (because no one who calls me regarding business insurance or banking calls has that sweet of a voice- tee hee!). And I was very excited!! I am fairly shy until I get to know someone, so I am not the type to scream or get overly excited...but I am pretty sure I giggled a bit! We had a short but sweet conversation, and it was a wonderful part of my day! I think I did pretty good...considering shyness normally tends to take over me in those type of situations! I am thrilled to be part of this new team, and I can't wait to be inspired by all of the other girls!!
