Shimelle's Scrapbook Sketch of the Week

I've been wanting to take part in the sketch of a week for a while but not had much time.  Decided today to take her latest one and have a play with it digi style.  I bought Echo Park's For The Record Element Pack 1 and Recipe Cards in last week's One Buck Wednesday and have been itching to use them ever sine.  In the Element Pack 1 there was a sheet of paper already divided into quarters and when I saw Shimelle's Sketch I instantly thought of this paper.  Here's my finished layout:

Journalling reads: Kids posing in the hallway to take cute pix for mamgu's driftwood frame.

Not much crafting but having fun at the Sessions!

I've had 3 shift's at the Active Living Centre in Bettws over the last few weeks so my weekends have been very busy and that knocks onto my crafting time.  The only thing I have done since Wednesday is a quick digital LO following the Scrapbooking with a Digital Template course at Big Picture Classes.  I seem to have fallen out of love with digital scrapbooking for the moment, I'm sure I'll enjoy it again but doing this LO didn't light my fire!

On Friday night we went to the Sessions and Open Mic Night at the Riverfront.  It's a Boutique Market held in the foyer of the theater with some lovely stalls.  My favorite was By Charlie's Hand, she does the most amazing papercuts on a huge variety of subjects.  At the moment I can't decide between this butterfly heart one and this lace heart one.  It will probably be the butterfly but am taking a couple of weeks to decide.  There was also a book stall that A loved, he managed to pick up a couple of rare books so he was a happy bunny. Other lovely stalls included Ginger Pig Designs, Jewellery by Rachel Mary (love the Lego collections, great gift ideas!), Emma Passey Design and Rachel Kinchen's Vintage Shop (could have spent a fortune on Vintage buttons).

Sessions is on the second Friday of every month, so looking forward to June's already.

WOYWW - 4th May 2011

Welcome to another WOYWW, thanks for all the lovely comments last week.  As you can see my desk is still relatively tidy as i haven't done much crafting, been too busy enjoying having the kids off school.  Gutted they've gone back today, the holidays were far too short! What's on my desk is 2 quick layouts I did on Monday night as I still have to glue the flowers on to the first one.  The 2 layouts are from Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love class on two peas, only got this month's to do and then i'm up to date!

To see more desks go to Julia's blog, there's loads there!
