Coughing Wednesday!

Well, although Alex has got rid of the chest infection he and the rest of us are still coughing so there is not much sleep going on round here.  That said I have still managed to do a little crafting over the past couple of days.  For once this Wednesday has caught me not making Christmas cards but scrapbooking - my scrapbook is way behind!  So here is my desk entered for WOYWW  - you can see my almost finished page using BoBunny papers, the balloon stickers, my stapler, some ribbon (cut out of a shirt), my pencil, ruler, black pen, craft knige and a general mix of other bits that haven't been put away from previous projects!
Here is the completed scrapbook layout...it follows this weeks Creative Scrapper sketch and fits with the Stamp simply food related theme as it is all about the birthday cake.  It also fits with the crazy challenge to use staples (the first time i have ever tried this!) and the Lasting memories 'recycle' challenge (the ribbon is recycled from a shirt and the cake embellishment is rescued from a card I was sent about 3 years ago!).
I have also made some Christmas cards...I think I have actually finished making all the ones I need with maybe the odd exception.  This one fits with the Ooh La La 'rudolph the red nose reindeer', Scrap it with a song 'Winter wonderland', OCC '3D' holiday project (the reindeer is on foam pads) and Pile it on 'winter means' challenges.
Finally I made a few Christmas cards like this which are quick and simple. Have a great rest of the week everyone.
Love,
Caro

A coughing household is a miserable thing - hope you are soon on the mend! Like your scrapbook layout, and also the cards - the reindeer looks as though he is ready to bound away.
