WOYWW 196

Good morning from sunny Olney. I’m on a week-long retreat with my special friends from UK scrappers so if you are here to see my work desk you’ll have a nice surprise as it is very neat and tidy for a change. There is more about the retreat on Susibee’s blog here. We are scrapping on the huge kitchen table and you can see the layout I have just finished, my tenth which is amazing for me, the slowest scrapper ever.

06.03.13 Sophia had a metal detector for Christmas and the photo shows her, with her mum, looking for treasure on the beach. Her dad was secretly putting down 2p pieces for her to find. :o)

OK why not join me in a hop around some fab workdesks linked to Julia’s blog?

Sounds like you’re being very industrious on your retreat Sue and ten LO’s, that must be a record surly.
Loving the one on your desk right now. It’s a shame that Sophia didn’t find anything more valuable than 2 pence pieces though.
Happy Crafting!

A retreat in Olney! I used to live right down the road from there in Newport Pagnell many moons ago. That's a novel Christmas present, lets hope she finds a hoard of gold coins or something.
