WOYWW # 207

or 'What's on your workdesk Wednesday' for anyone wondering what on earth that title is all about! :) 
Pop on over to Julia's blog here to find lots more lovely WOYWWs

Well, today on my workdesk is still my UKS weekly challenge from last week. I finished it on Sunday just before dashing off to do a night shift and have not had a chance to get back there yet - so it's still there waiting patiently to be photographed and unleashed upon the unsuspecting world!!
As you can see the desk is a tad untidy too as I have not had a chance to put anything away!

In the top right of the picture is some of the new lace I bought on Saturday when my UKS teamie MiniOwner (aka Sue) introduced me to a fabric shop I didn't know was there :o

Our challenge last week was to use this sketch -
also to use at least 5 different patterned papers (I think I used 7 not counting the little scraps behind the hearts on the tag) and add at least 5 lines of journalling.

and just in case anyone is interested ...the view from my window is misty today. Not so bad that I can't still see the dunes but not brilliant either !!

I think I need to clean my windows  !!! :(
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone and see you here again soon xxx

Creative Scrappers May sketch challenge

It's been a while since I did a layout for the Creative Scrappers monthly challenge so when I saw this month's sketch

I thought it was just up my street :)

And so...

this is what I came up with

Last September my friends Karen, Elaine and I went for a day trip on the river Thames. We took the hydrafoil from the O2 arena all the way up to the London Eye. It was a nice sunny day but it was just a tad windy on the river !!! We had lunch at Nando's on the south bank and then headed to the pub. We also stopped off at Greenwich when we seemed to find ourselves in another bar !!
All in all it was a fun day :)

(Inter)National Scrapbooking day - May the fourth be with you!!!

I just thought I would share a few pics and layouts of the fab day we had at ScrapAngels on Saturday. I took the 'on the day' photos on my phone and have only just worked out how to transfer them onto the netbook *shock/horror*

Kerry was hosting a 12 Scrap-a-thon. Unfortunately I had to work in the evening so I only managed 7 hours but many of them did the whole 12 !!

Of course a scrapping day would not be a scrapping day without cupcakes !!

 and coffee (or tea or even Baileys!!! Yes, Denise had bought some flavouring for her coffee ;)  )

some friends............Sue came all the way down from Bath!!!

and lots of pretty paper!

And here are the 2 LOs that I managed to finish

My BF Karen in Turkey last year (can't wait to get back there! :) )
This was the page I did for Kerry's sketch challenge.

and Will and Taryn at Oak Park Mall on a 'humour mum shopping trip'. We stopped for a spot of lunch at the food park - chinese, of course !!
And for this page the challenge was to use scraps of patterned paper.

I nearly finished a third LO but it needs a title and some tweeting, so that one will have to wait to be revealed !!

All in all a great May the 4th :)
