Poor Pooh! (WOYWW)

This is my desk as it was on Tuesday morning...a small boy playing with his transformers on my desk and sad that Pooh Bear's head had nearly come off.  We are not sure how it happened, but poor Pooh is certainly in need of emergency surgery.
As my entry to WOYWW this is my desk as it was on Tuesday evening...Pooh still isn't fixed as I need some more tough thread and a thimble in order to stitch him up (I hope to buy them on Thursday when I can get into town), so he is sat carefully at the back of my desk with his head balanced. Also in evidence on my desk are my trusty tea mug, sadly almost empty now, some masks and stamps that need cleaning (almost hidden) and my 2013 smash book.
The next page of my smash book is from the last weekend in Feb when i met up with my brother and his family.  The page itself was plan white so I used masks and sequin waste with distress inks to make a colourful background for the photos.  As this page mostly features three little boys having fun in an indoor play area I am entering this into CCC 'masculine' challenge.
The next page I left plan white and then added images taken from the magazine article and doodled a frame and the writing. I am entering this into Through the craftroom door 'anything goes' challenge.
The final page is of Mothering Sunday.  The page was already pale blue and had the words 'The Top 10' on it.  I added a flower mask and distress ink, then splattered gently with water and then the rest of the lettering and the numbers as a way to remember the special parts of Mothering Sunday. I am entering this into SSSS 'water' (as I used some water in generating the background).
That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.

Poor Pooh I do hope he gets his head together soon, nothing worse than a detatched head. I suppose he has a headache too. LOL

Great pages for the smash book.

Your pages look fantastic as they always do, you have a real eye for detail and how to make your pictures stand out
Wishing you a very Happy WOYWW

Oh my, we didn't realise WOYWW had turned into a horror show!! We've shaded Pooh's eyes from the trauma!! Your LOs are lovely though.

Thanks for scaring, oops I mean visiting the bears today. :)

Three successful pages there, Caro! You obviously had a lot of fun doing those :)
Poor Pooh..he looks like he's been in a WWF wrestling match. Hope your hunt for stronger thread succeeds!
Hugs, LLJ #45 xx

I love the way your smash book is progressing. What sort of book are you using, did you make it yourself or buy it as is? Thank you for your visit today. They (the mythical "they") reckon that anyone can draw if they try and keep trying, so have a go with Alex. I am not very good, but I am enjoying having a go, and I have a good rubber too. Have a good week. xx Maggie #32

Hi Caro,

Your smash book pages are great! I love every single one of them. Good luck on the challenges!

And oh my, poor Pooh. His head is quite balanced so I'm hoping he doesn't get a cramp in his neck!

Thanks for visiting me already. I'm slowly getting around.
