Please Welcome Lea Lawson our Card Gal

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!!

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!!
