what a few days....

6 June 2007

...first the launch of the Kim Archer workshops @ home website here.... which I'm soooooooo excited to be a part of... ( I'm guessing you have all gathered by now... lol)

...and then yesterday Miss Jane released some brand new Crafty Matters Ceramic Embellishments .... I'm pretty sure I mentioned earlier that Miss Jane asked me to join her team of Crafty Matters Contributors .... this means I get to play with and use the most adorable little ceramic embellishments....and for this month...I actually got to participate even more.....

Miss Jane asked if I would come up with some Teenage themed words which she then created into little ceramic word tiles...... well let me tell you...in a home full of teenagers...words aren't a problem....but words that can be painted on a tile are much rarer to find.

So with the help of my eloquent children...we came up with some appropriate words...and I was able to use them on the layouts below.....
This first one of Brent and Alex and the their self posed shots they take on my camera (and I mean everytime I download the camera!! they honestly must photograph themselves every day...lol)... using the word tiles 'Sweet'...'Wicked' and 'Love ya'......
...and this one of Brent...with the word tiles 'cool'...'whatever' and 'awesome'.....

...these really are fun to work with... make sure you check out the other gorgeous layouts by Jane, Lou and Charmane ... all using different ceramic tiles...and embellishments (very cute little wings)....and remember Jane is only to happy to paint whatever you like on the tiles.....they can be personalised with anything....

Ok... about the only other news I have is...... my computer is playing up...I am devastated....and battling to work my way around its idiosyncrasies ....but I was like a savage animal last night...tearing my hair out (Gee...that sounds classy doesnt it....lol).....I cant believe a little box on my desk can cause me so much grief...lol
Have a good day... Mardi x

  4. Hi Mardi!

    Awesome layouts and those word tiles look so cool! I'll be looking out for some for myself... Good luck with your computer probs - we solved ours by buying a new one last week (no choice really - the hard drive crashed!) Have a great day!

    Yes computers can be wonderful sometimes but also a great big headache too. I hope you sort yours out and it starts co - operating properly.

    I am so excited to see these layouts with the word embellishments. They look brilliant, I love them.

    Your amazing Mardi, thanks for inspiring me once again.
