Drowning in theses! (WOYWW)

It really does feel like I am drowning in theses at the moment...I have 8 heses to read, mark and examine and 2 to edit. So far I have managed to mark only two of them. All this goes to explain why, on my crafting desk, which I am showing you as part of WOYWW, there is the black cover of a thesis in the left hand corner of the photo. This also explains why my desk looks relatively tidy...I have had the thesis open on it and had to put things away so that I didn't get distracted.  Also on my desk are various tapestry stamps and versa color ink pads which are being used for a project I will show you at a later date.  The little farmer stamp and the cardboard, which I am tearing to reveal the corrugated part are also for the same project. Of course it wouldn't  be my desk without my trusty mug of tea, sadly in need of a refill at the moment.
Crafting wise I have finished my holiday mini album.  The next page is of our trip to fantasy island theme park...we all loved the rides here! I am entering this into The crazy challenge 'anything goes' challenge.
The next page uses Lavinia stamps, and tapestry stamps with distress inks and is of a steam train ride. I am entering this into SCSC 'circles' challenge.
The next page is of our trip to Lincoln using Purple Onion stamps (round the edge and fleur de lys) and the Lavinia stamp of a horse and carriage to represent our horse and cart ride round Lincoln. As this feels fairly vintagey I am entering it into SSSS 'no rules - anything goes' challenge.
Finally I used Lavinia stamps stars for the final day of our holiday when we went boating on the lake next to the sea and then out for ice-cream.  As all these photos are from the seaside I am entering this page into Crafty cardmakers 'seaside' challenge.
Well that is all from me for now.  Have a fantastic week everyone.

Love the circle album. Hope you made a real dent in the marking by now. I still have some essays looking at me, but there is 2 and a half weeks of holiday left, so it can wait.
Happy belated WOYWW!

Hi Caro, love your little mini album. Sadly though at Crafty Cardmakers we did ask that you submit a 6x4 postcard, so we will not be able to consider you for the prize this time around.

Hope to see you back next time though.

Lin xx
