Layout from Melinda and a farewell.

Welcome everyone. Today is a slightly sad day for us, as we say a ‘see you later’ to one of star designers and ‘Ladies of the Manor’ Educators – Melinda Thompson, as she leaves us for a while for the momentous occassion – the pending arrival of a little bundle of ...sleepless nights (LOL).  (Ok, not so funny at 3am!).

Melinda 300

She has created yet another one of her awesome layouts which includes some of her favourites things – mixed media, flowers and tearing. She is a master at it.

The rich black, gold and cream make such a stunning combination.

We are wishing her the absolute VERY best for the next few months, crossing all our fingers and toes that her little one arrives under the very best of circumstances and we can’t wait to see the photos!!! *hint hint Melinda*

We hope when life settles down again for Melinda and her family, she may, one day, be back again, scrapping up a flower-storm. We will REALLY miss you girl…… :(
