My workdesk!

I am chuffed to bits at the moment because some of the new bulbs I planted in my garden last year have started to flower...I just love spring flowers!
It is Wednesday and that means it is time for another WOYWW. If you don't know what I am talking about then click the link and pop over and see all the fun.  My desk today is mid scrapbooking.  You can see the various elements of the scrapbook page that I am putting together, the cropped photos, the scraps of patterned paper, the background white card with green stippled distress ink already on it, my craft mat, double sided tape, pencils, pens, craft knife, and most importantly my lovely mug full of steaming hot tea. Perfect!
Having shown you the page in pieces I thought I would show you the final creation! It loosely followed the Sketchy Thursdays sketch for the week, and fits with the Tuesday Throwdown challenge of using scraps (all the papers, with the exception of the background card are scraps from earlier projects), the lasting memories challenge to show case your own style (lots of white space), crafty cardmakers challenge to use fabric (ribbon and felt), and Kaboodle Doodles and Do you stack up challenges to use green (photos are matted on green, green distress ink stippled round the background panel, green papers and embellishments). That is all from me for now. Have a great rest of the week,
Love,
Caro
