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


It is with great pleasure that we welcome the incredibly talented LYDELL QUIN as our Guest Designer for June.

“Hi- I am Lydell Quin.  I have been scrapbooking for 10 years now and still enjoy it!  (Nice to be able to say that!)  I co own and run The Color Room, (a colour challenge site) and am a Shimmerz Educator and Designer and I also Design for Helmar.  I have 3 little people ranging from 9 down to 13 weeks and they keep me busy, and give me plenty to scrapbook!  Luckily my DH enjoys the outcome of my art and has been known to keep children occupied so I can finish something I have been working on.  We are from Adelaide, Australia.  Its lovely to be able to play some more with these Manor House Creation goodies!

Thanks for having me!”
