Meet this week's Featured Designer - *Mandy King*


Happy Monday!! We'd love to introduce this week's Featured Designer, *Mandy King*! Mandy is a great Designer at MyMemories and we're sure you'll love her too! Here's some fun stuff Mandy wanted to share with you:

  My name is Mandy King and I live in Ohio with my husband and four children (two girls and two boys). Teaching sixth graders was my first career, but since having my first baby in 2001, I have been a stay-at-home mom. I started paper scrapbooking back in 1998 but discovered digital in 2005 and there was no looking back! I LOVE designing and working with bright colors is my favorite...if you find pastels in my creations, you know that I was forced OR had a moment of insanity! As far as my own scrapbooks go...don't ask! I am woefully behind (like YEARS), but my youngest goes to kindergarten next fall and I have lofty goals of catching up. Aside from scrapbooking, here's some random information about me...I love to read. My favorite genre is historical fiction, although I read all types of books. My favorite book is Gone With The Wind, but I adore the Harry Potter series, 39 Clues series, anything by Janet Evanovich, Anne of Green Gables and I’ve recently discovered – and devoured – the Mary Russell series by Laurie R. King. I almost always have a John Grisham novel in the works as well and have been known to read the same book many times over. My favorite season is Autumn, no question. It means football (go Bengals!), shorts with sweatshirts and the amazing colors as the leaves are changing. I’m not a fan of really hot weather, so I welcome the cooler temperatures. As a mom, I’d have to say that Christmas is my favorite holiday…I love watching the magic of the season through my kids’ eyes. Someday I’d like to create a new reality tv show, one where you take stay-at-home-moms and send them to some tropical paradise ALONE for a month – and have their husbands take over running the house and children. My husband is wonderful about me getting out for the evenings and even weekends (I go scrapbooking; imagine that!), but before leaving, I have to arrange the meals, carpools, be sure the laundry is done, do the shopping…you know the routine. I think the whole thing would be a complete hoot! (And I’d be watching from my island get-away, laughing while tears stream down my face!). I consider myself very blessed to have met so many wonderful people through digital scrapbooking. The supportive and encouraging community at My Memories just affirms my opinions that scrapbookers are among some of the most wonderful people on earth!

I love this blog, I love meeting new designer. To be honest this is my friest time seeing your stuff and I'm not going to lie I'm in love! I love all the word are and background frames. But if I have to pick one it would be funky day

Jonyce said...

Congrats Mandy!! So excited that you are designer of the week. I had to LOL at the "Shorts with sweatshirts" comment. :) I know EXACTLY what you mean by that! My hands down, absolute favorite is Chromatic Symphony! I LOVE the colors and happy feelings I get when looking at this kit. :)

HeatherLeah - Scissors and Hot Glue said...

My favorite is definitely Funky Day. It has the retro look I love with the colors I tend to gravitate toward. To top it off, there are stars, which are my weakness!

andastra said...

Congrats on being designer of the week! My favorite kit is Spunky Sweet. It´s such a cute kit and it´s perfect for the sweet pictures of my two little girls. Thank you so much for the chance to win!

Rachel Williamson DeVaughn said...

Karen Diebolt said...

I couldn't pick just one, I found three that I really like; Funky Hodgepodge, Date it tags, and Spunky Sweet.

Jilean said...

My favorite is Let the Sun shine!

Arlene (Marshal Dillon) said...

Congrats on being featured designer of the week Mandy! I had to go look in my files to see which of your kits I have and I obviously must love all your winter stuff because I have Frosted, The Frosty way, Christmas Comes Softly, and Longhorn Holiday haha. I guess it's time to warm up to a new season. The next kit I was looking to buy is 'Peace of Mind'. Have a fun week :)

Chris Hughes said...

Congrats Mandy! Are you really going to make me pick just one? I have to admit I laugh every time I see "Thank You God For Dirt". With the exception of a daughter, I have all guys in my life. This kit fits the bill!

Rachel M. said...

I'd have to say that my favorite kit that I don't already have is Fiddle Dee Dee. Love the colors in it! Thanks for the chance to win!

Cindy .B. said...

I really love the one called Just around the bend...

Momma Laura said...

Love your stuff! "Frosted" is my new favorite kit! I'm going back years and scrapping all those lovely snow scenes with it. It really captures the spirit of a snowy day.

Shari@Rain into Rainbows said...

Well, unlike Mandy, I *love* pastels! It makes sense then that girly charm paper pack would be my favorite. :-)

Yobeth Puckett said...

Congrats on being featured designer! My favorite kit is Cheyenne. I love the colors & don't currently have any kit like it.

My fav is Bohemian Blessings - fitted right in my beach holiday theme album - the funky purples and oranges were a good change from blue! I've had MyMemories for just a week and have 5 of your packs so I think that says it all :) And now there's a sale on - yay! Ang
