16 June 2007

...I couldnt even have my shower until 10am as the pipes were frozen.... my poor plants are looking very dead... and although the sun is shining brightly now....there is still frost on the ground in the shade..... I wish we could get a little more rain...and take these crisp frosty mornings away.

...anyway enough whinging about the

Last night the Designing Memories July kit was unveiled...and I can finally share my layouts....
I was so honoured to be chosen as a Guest Designer for July.....
Katja does an amazing job putting the kits together.... it contained so many papers....alphas...and embellishments...and a lot of products I hadnt seen or played with before... I created four layouts (including a double)...and still have more to play with....
Thankyou so much Katja for giving me this oppurtunity..... and so without further ado here are my layouts...firstly a double of Briony and I....

...and this one...

...and this one..using some older photos of my cherubs... (and actually one of my favourites..)
...and finally this one of the hot water monsters... (my other favourite)..

dont you think they are great products!! ... pop on over to Designing Memories to see the full kit...and to check out the gorgeous layouts by Kathie , Sara and Katja.
Well..... Im off to netball again.... Briony coaches in the morning....and then plays at lunchtime... I think Im going to buy a nice hot pie...and sit in the sun...

    Wow Mardi you never stop amazing me when I see more of your wonderful creations.

    While all these layouts look fabulous I especiallt love the first layout with the photos of you and Briony together. How special.

    I really want to get some photos like that of Amanda and I together. Thanks for the reminder.

    Have a great day and keep warm. Today is the 11th day straight of having rain here in Sydney so if I could send you some I sure would.

  9. Wow Mardi. These Designing Memories layouts are fantastic. So scrumptious. You may not realise but you have uploaded a huge version of the 1997 Mitch and Briony layout, and I just loved studying all the little details! It was almost like seeing the real thing!
    Just reading the other comments on this post and see that my dear friend Lea has found your blog! She's been telling me lately how much she loves your stuff!
