Morning all...

Today I am, again, joining in WOYWW over at The Stamping Ground. If you want to know more, do pop on over for a look see.

This is the state of my desk currently!

As you can see, I'm in the middle of painting a picture frame. It previously held a photo of my dear grand-daughter yet the frame colour did not go with any of my other frames. So..I've painted it black and I aim to go over it with a coat of Prima Gold Crackle paint too.

I've had a productive week... I had a MAJOR clear up of my room and have sorted out lots of small embellishments that I have been saving for my mixed media projects and are now all categorised. 

I still haven't replaced my ATG gun tape, but that's because I tried to and discovered that the tape I'd bought was a copycat and it was rubbish! So.. I've ordered a new one and hope the one that turns up is an original not a copy and works as it should this time! 
I've been busy producing more layouts too.. here are some of them:

This one I made for my friend Sues challenge over on Meandmine blog  I used some of my Counterfeit Kit, April Skies, for this one..

 from this sketch

and these two were also created using my Counterfeit Kit too

 I created this for a challenge over on UKScrappers.. to use chipboard.. which I did in abundance! Lol

This one was also for another challenge on use this sketch..and to join in with 'Another Freaking Scrapping Challenge ' use the word lucky.

and finally I made this layout for a challenge over on Rochelle Spears website and again it was inspired by a challenge over on UKScrappers.. who set a weekly challenge and many others if you're looking for inspiration, then look no further  

I used the left hand sketch of these three  to choose from and I had to use a journaling card too

and this is what I created

Well that's about it now.. so thanks for stopping by! I'm off to have a snoop around some of the other lovely desks and see what you've all been up to.

Bye for now.

  6. Well done for the clear up! I bet it's great to know where everything is now. And challenges must be useful to kick start an idea - I've never really done any, my loss, I think!

  9. What a lovely neat space there - and you have been SO busy, too. Well done.
    Thanks for visiting and for your comments. Yes - what a surprise to bump into Neet like that - and to think that if John and I had not gone to the York show the other week, where we met her for the first time, we would have simply walked past someone else on the street!!! and not known that we had just passed a fellow WOYWWer!!!
    Take care. God bless.

  10. That's a bummer of the tape, you didn't pay full price I hope? I like the second Lo the best, but all the rest also great. Happy WOYWW Vicky#6

  13. Lovely layouts. You have been busy! I still haven't got around to scrapping anything lol. Too much stuff so little time. I hope you end up with a 'real' tape this time. I have enough trouble getting a real one on the ATG gun.
