Guest Designer at Manor House Creations! {January 2013}

Hello there Scrappy People!  Well I have a spring in my step today
BECAUSE I have my internet back!  Hooray!!  Still no computer
yet but YAY for laptops!!  Even if mine's not the best - it keeps me
in the loop at least!  Now onto scrappy matters - yes, you read right,
I am featured over at Manor House Creations blog this month, which
makes me so darn happy! 

 I wouldn't say I'm a 100% flower girl - I can live without them on a
page if I have to {if they don't suit the mood} but I do love them &
use them on lots and lots of my pages.  I really feel that flowers are 
suitable for any appropriate page, wherever you would like to use
 them, whether they be for 'girl' or 'boy' layouts.  They are really
 universal, and they are PRETTY and pretty things make me
 happier - I believe they make us ALL happier, so my thinking is -

 "Wherever possible, surround yourself with pretty things".

Thank you Manor House for having me :)
The bio is a little out of date now that things have changed in my
life & I am back at work full time but that's because I had these
layouts prepared in December last year before I went away on
vacation & initially the post was going to go up whilst I was away.

Take a look at the original post HERE on the lovely Manor House blog.

Here are a few of Helen's stunning creations, all featuring 
a wonderful selection of Manor House Creations flowers.

Helen has an incredible talent for making our flowers
 look amazing, even on the most masculine of pages.

Helen is just as at home creating flowery, feminine pieces

The ‘winters song – coffee’ flower takes centre
 stage on this wonderful layout.
* * *
And again, the Winters song flower, this time ‘Cyan’
 makes a stunning addition to Helen's layout.

We would like to thank Helen for sharing her wonderful 
creations with us. Her work has been an inspiration to many
 scrapbookers, both in Australia and overseas. 
We hope she has inspired you today.

Thanks for popping by!
If you swing by here often you would have seen all these
layouts before - just wanted to share my excitement at
being featured on a blog I love and admire.



Loved each one of these layouts, Helen! Good to see you surfing/ blogging again :)
