There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.


Melinda was chosen because of her bold use of flowers and style. She is very clever at using flowers on her ‘boyish’ pages.


Hi my name is Melinda Thompson.  I am married to a wonderful husband Brad of 11 years and we have two adorable boys, Riley 4 years, Finlay 2.5 years who are my constant source of inspiration.  We live in Emerald in Central Queensland and just love the quiet country life.

I started scrapping around the time that Riley was born but only really became ‘serious’ about 2 years ago.  Now I am hooked!! Scrapbooking to me is a wonderful combination of creative release and a way of recording our family’s memories.  I love to scrap and journal about the little & insignificant details of my boy’s life.  I do something scrap related nearly everyday, if I’m not scrapping I am thinking about it, browsing through magazines, online galleries and blogs or simply taking photos of my little boys.

My style is always evolving, not sure if I have a style as I love to experiment with new techniques, so it often depends on what I am scrapping or the challenge.  Even though I have two boys, I am not afraid to use flowers on my layouts.  But I do love to use any distressing technique, layering, stitching and non scrapping embellishments on my LO’s.

I have had a number of LO’s published with Scrapbooking Memories and have quite a few waiting to be published. I am currently on the Design Team for Colour Combos Galore, Purple Pumpkin and the Creative Team for Stuck Sketches?!

I am very honoured to be part of this Design Team and I look forward to sharing my work with you soon.
