Late Wednesday!

Well my post is going up late today as I simply ran out of time!  Life is very busy at the moment as I have a lot on at work and so there is less time for blogging and crafting sadly.  For WOYWW here is my desk which today is in the process of making a scrapbook layout. You can see some ribbons and lace I am working with and the layout part way through.  My large wonderful mug of tea is there, nice and hot and comforting. 
And here is the finished layout! It follows this weeks Nuts about sketches sketch, and fits with the CCC 'shabby sparkle' (I distressed the edges, stippled ink on the background and through sequin waster, used lace and added sparkly gold ribbon, and gems), Kaboodle Doodles 'stitching' (there is fake stitching on the two layers of the central panel), Pollycrafts 'Christmas in July', The crazy challenge 'ribbons', Paper play 'ribbon, lace and buttons', Lasting Memories 'Titles' (mine uses stamping and three different types of letters), and Simon Says stamp and show 'Anything goes'. That is all from me for today. Have a great rest of the week everyone.
Love,
Caro

It's so nice to see your layout among the entries. I guess your getting your Christmas photos scrapped. Reminds me to get to mine too. Nice touch with the lace and the faux stitching.

Thanks for joining us at Kaboodle Doodles! And hope to see more layouts from you in the coming weeks. =)

Hugs,
Kath
