WOYWW - 5 May 2010

Is it really Wednesday again already? Another week has flown by, so I guess that means it is time for 'What's on your workdesk Wednesday' over at Julia's Stamping Ground. This is what my desk looks like this morning (minus the kitty this week!) The second pic is to the left of my desk and I am using it just as extra space while I work on my pages. It is usually my cutting station for my big shot and cuttlebug.
At the moment I am working on an album for my mum with photos of a surprise 60th birthday that we had for her. It is definitely not my usual scrapbooking style (or colours) but I wanted to match the theme of the party as well as keep all of the colours and embellishments the same throughout the album, for continuity purposes.

So for this reason I am just using three colours (basic black, riding hood red and whisper white), as well as some designer paper in riding hood red, some flower punches, some 'bling' and the flourish stamp from the Baroque Motifs stamp set by Stampin' Up! to match the stamp that I had used on her original invitation.

I am only onto my third page so far but I am hoping that it will all come together pretty quickly. Especially since I have a few RAKs to get out, a swap to finish (with 16 cards) as well as make a start on my swaps for convention which is only a few weeks away. Maybe I should spend less time at the computer and more time at my desk huh! lol

I can't wait to have a snoop around everyone elses work desks this week.
