11.09.12Wednesday again already! Last week I was scrapping on a teeny table in a hotel room – now I’m back in my own craft room and, as you can see, I am a very messy crafter. Even though I have a whole room and a six foot work desk, I actually craft in an area big enough to put down a 12x12 piece of card, if I’m lucky! I will tidy up for next week … I will. ;o)
I am working on this month’s challenge at UKS. We are asked to use Work, Rest or Play for our theme. I am scrapping a gorgeous picture of Beth asleep with her bum in the air! I’m rather pleased with myself this week as I’m venturing into spray mist and stamping on my pages.
OK off to see what’s on other people’s work desks.
Thanks for visiting mine.

ETA The smiley face is my desk bin. :o)

It is an eternal law that we all end up with a postage stamp space to craft in no matter how much actual flat area there is! Your splattering looks great. Very controlled. Hugs, Buttons #70

Hi Sue I know that shrinking feeling too well! I tried a spot of paint splattering on my layout this week. It was a bit scary but I think I like it enough to try it again. Cute shot of Baby Beth. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 5

Your desk looks like mine Sue

I must admit I do love a bit of stamping and spraying on my pages

I'm sort of the same way. Large desk but small area that I work in, the rest is just all my stuff that gets piled around as I work. Brave you using the sprays on your layouts. I would be too afraid if it didn't come out the way I wanted it too. Brigita #133

Tammy said...

Jennie Hart said...

Don't we all scrap that way? Lol. I have just seen this layout finished on my way through and it looks absolutely fabulous, I love the chevrons, the delicate feel and the misting.

How adorable does she look there, love the photo. xxx

Lovely scrap page Sue, the photo is beautiful. Well done on trying spray mists :)

Happy belated WOYWW, thanks for stopping by my blog fellow Mikes Gal (only been married to my Michael for 2.5 years lol)

I think it is Crafting Law that no matter what size our desks are we are working in space only an inch bigger than the project itself!
That layout is super scrumptious! Love it and well done you for being brave. It has paid off.
And as for pants...NO I definitely do not iron them, nor socks. It is just that we are rummaging through the ironing pile looking for them as there are none in the drawers any more!!

Lou said...

A gorgeous LO and that is so like my desk normally is, need to get back into crafting and getting messy again.

Nothing done for me this week so my desk is still tidy :)
