Cameras!

For those of you who regularly read my blog you will know that Alex has been fascinated with cameras since he was about 2...probably because I follow him round with one most of the time.  He has now become very good at framing a shot and loves to be allowed to play, so I let him have my old camera when the mood takes him, which results in a lot of big grins all round!
As it is Wednesday (where did that week go!) it is time for me to show you my desk as part of WOYWW. My desk is currently in the midst of an ATC making session. On my desk you can see promarkers, some distress ink pads, my craft knife and ruler, Crafty Individual stamps, the ATC I am currently working on and in the background one of Alex's Gormiti monsters (in for emergency surgery as his head and wings had come off!), and the PVA glue I used to stick him.
This is the final ATC which was made using a digital stamp of the wolf pack (I can't remember where I got this one, but it was a freebie), which I masked and then stamped over with green leaves and finished with a sparkling orange butterfly. As a result this ATC fits with the orange and green challenge from Pile it on, the up in the air with green challenge from CCC, and the butterfly challenge from Delightful challenges and flourishes timeless tuesday.
I also made a few thank you cards for Alex as his birthday party is coming up...he will be 4, can you believe it!  Where has that time flown.  For these cards I used a one layer design with Robbie the Robot from Spyders Other corner, and digital words and I coloured them in using promarkers. This card therefore fits with Speedy the cats friends 'green and grey one layer', creative card crews 'no flowers' and Oh La La 'its a man thing' challenges. Have a great rest of the week,
Love,
Caro

I'm very impressed by your desk: it's the perfect combination of messy and tidy. How on earth do you manage it? Your wolf pack ATC is stunning. You can imagine turning a corner somewhere and seeing it. Stunning.

Thanks for sharing.

Great idea to let Alex have a camera now and then - I bet some of his shots are amazing - they sure see things that we wouldn't think to photo! Your ATCs are lovely - love Spyder's robot!
