Hijacked! (WOYWW)

Well it is Wednesday again, so time for WOYWW, and this is what my desk looked like yesterday morning.  Alex hijacked it so that he could stamp and colour in a card for his girlfriend!
This time he chose to use a Whiff of Joy and a tapestry flower stamp for his design.  He ran out of time for colouring in so decided to leave the dress white with pink highlights (Ella likes pink) and to colour in the hair only.
This is my desk as it was last night, with me having a chance to craft. It is somewhat messier when I craft- LOL!  As you can see I was midway through making a scrapbook layout so there are papers, stamps (mostly left over from Alex’s crafting), my craft mat and DST. To the back of my desk is my lovely hot mug of tea and to the left is my new kindle (a wedding anniversary present) in its bright red case (so I don’t lose it!). I had to force myself to put down the Kindle and actually craft yesterday as my bookworm nature has taken over this week – I have read 3.5 novels since getting the Kindle last Friday!
This is the finished layout which follows this weeks sketch from Lasting Memories.  It also fits with DYSU ‘Inspired by a movie’ (How to tame a dragon) and Fussy and Fancy ‘Boy attitude’.  The papers are Basic Gray and Cosmo Cricket and the embellishments are printed images from the film How to Tame a Dragon, and a making memories hammer (I didn't have an axe!).  That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone,
