WOYWW #199

Hello and it's 'What's on your workdesk Wednesday' again.

This week my desk (aka the kitchen table!) has another scrapbook page. This time it is from the kit from my Scrap Angels crop night. On Monday night I worked a night shift at the nursing home, came home and watched TV for a bit then went to bed around 10 am (sorry, boring bit but you need to know it!) and set the alarm for 3.15 pm. Thinking that this would give me plenty of time to have a shower, get my bag ready and get to the crop. Well...I woke at 6.55pm ... and the crop is at 7! LOL   I must have turned the alarm off and gone back to sleep!

Needless to say I was a little bit late but then, as all that know me know, that is not unusual anyway :D

The layout needed a photo because I hadn't had time to sort one out and I can never remember the colour scheme from the month before. And today I have added the journalling today too.

Here is a close up of the page

and the journalling.

Today I am rather sad too because my car seems to have died in the car park up the road - I had gone for an interview for a cleaning job and when I came out the car wouldn't start.

  7. Belated WOYWW greetings Karen, thanks for stopping by earlier too and for the comments on the butterflies on my card - going to do a tally for Wednesday post. Love your scrap layout - lovely colours and journaling.. I really must get all my half started ones out of the cupboard and do something with them. Sorry to hear about your car and hope its easily fixed..have a good week... Gill x

  8. Have you tried threatening your car with a sledge hammer? It always works with my computer at work! What a beautiful layout. I think the idea of hidden journaling will find its way into my art journaling.

    Thank you for visiting and for the inspiration.
    Cheers, Rachel

  9. A lovely layout - I like the colours and especially love the little butterflies - so pretty, and such lovely way to capture a memory.
