WOYWW and this week I don't have lots of papers piled on the shelves..I have put them all away! I do however have a little pile of things on the side of my desk waiting to be filed away while my desk is in the midst of a cardmaking session. You can see my somewhat battered craft mat, a craft knife and ruler (I never got on with a guilotine or other type of cutter), inks, stamps and of course my mug (sadly half full of cold tea - yuk - I need to put the kettle on)
Nuts about Sketches. In case you hadn't guessed I am trying to do my holiday scrapbook from last years holiday and as usual I took far too many photos so it is great to find inventive ways in which to use them in both single and double page layouts. I kept this layout simple using just stamping as embellishments (purple onion stamps in the corners and Crafty Individual's Whitby Abbey stamps) so this fits with this weeks Lasting Memories 'stamping' challenge. The title was made using rub-ons (I really struggle with getting the white ones to look nice) and the journalling was inspired by the lines 'Laughin’ and a runnin’ hey hey, skippin’ and a jumpin’ from this weeks Scrap it with a song. The journalling actually reads 'Despite Alex's objections to the howling wind, he had fun exploring Whitby Abbey, running, chasing, laughing and jumping, whilst I enjoyed the architectural beauty and stunning location of a place that I have wanted to visit for years'.
Pollycraft, 'love is in the air' theme from Pile it on, 'Valentines' from Spoon full of sugar and this weeks Cupcake Inspiration challenge. Have a great rest of the week everyone.
