WOYWW #380



I can not believe it is Wednesday already where did the time go. If you are new to our Wednesday's head over to our fearless leader Julia's, join in the fun and to learn more the link is below to her blog.


Well here is my desk really not much has changed from last week as I am still working on September challenge and it just is taking its time to get done. To the right is another wink a Stella pen and my stamp set from lawn fawn my sister gave me for my birthday and when I went for my holiday earlier this summer I picked up the die to go with it. I have left it there so I remember as soon as this layout is done I MUST start on making some Christmas cards. 

As you can see to the left is a new paper collection, well this collection is what I won and two other women won the same for completing the summer challenge for the local scrapbook store, Scrapbooks Made Simple where I live. Here is a close up of the paper pack.


It is Carta Bella Summer Loving what a great prize for all of us to win. Well really that is about it as for three days my DH and I where in the car heading down to Calgary and back for a quick meeting he had and then out to dinner for a nice  anniversary dinner before heading back home early the next morning. So that's about all I have really done and it is a short post. Thank you to everyone who visited last week and commented it really means so much to me to read them all. Have a great week and I am off to hop around to as many desks as I can.

WOYWW #379



Yes it is Wednesday and this means WOYWW and if you are new to this head over to our wonderful creator Julia Stamping Ground so go check out and join the great fun all of us have every Wednesday with a great bunch of creative friends.

So to my desk.......


Here I am working on this months layout challenge for the local scrapbook store. I have a pile of stickers in the left hand corner, pulled them out from my stash and at the top is paper and stuff that came in the kit to use. I decided to make some embellisments from the paper using glossy accents and doing some fussy cutting out. And late last Wednesday I finally finished the summer challenge and here is the layout.


With the help of my oldest hole punching out the ants and glueing black sequence to there butts. The yellow flowers are extras I made and just sitting in my stash. The green grass is cut out from a Cricut cartridge and I embossed two squares and layered them under to add a napkin under the blanket. The layout sits on my album that holds all the challenges I have done over the past year. 

Haven't been up to much as I am still under the weather from last week. My DH and I are going away  to celebrate our 22sd wedding anniversary Saturday and we are leaving the kids for the weekend at home. 

I want to say thank you to everyone who visited and left me wonderful comments that I enjoy reading each one. I am off to hop around to such creative desk owners. Have a amazing Wednesday to everyone. 
Hugs ~Anne 😉

WOYWW #378



It's Wednesday and it is time to see what has landed on my desk in the since last week. 

This is my desk late Tuesday night and yes I did tidy it a bit as I seemly lost my ruler under piles of paper and goodies. 


I am in a race to finish the last of the summer challenge layouts and I have finished 5 in the last 48 hours with one left to do later Wednesday afternoon. Glad I didn't take a picture of the floor as there is a ton of scrap paper that is laying everywhere since my daughter and me have been working on our happy planners and then doing the layouts.  On the desk is a bowl of ice cream my DH gave me since I have lost my voice and when I talk sounds like a frog. In the top left corner is my paper collection from photo play the happy glamper and to the far right I found 100 crayola pencil crayons, more so to practice my coloring with before I get a better set. I once again put away the stuff I picked up last week on our trip to Edmonton for my brother in law so I guess no peeking at that. The test went well for him and the doctors are now deciding to do a by pass soon and cross there fingers that will help, but he is at home resting from it all and back to waiting for the doctors to pick a date. 


Here is a quick shot of all the layouts to date and if you notice to the right is my ATG gun in a homemade stand from wood blocks and elastic bands and I love it no more hunting for it under paper or it sticking to where it shouldn't. Okay a few close up of the 5 layouts...






Well that's about it as this week is still rolling in to crazy tomorrow I get my car back from the shop, school starts for my youngest on Thrusday and it feels like winter so I will be in a race to get everything done outside before the first snow fall and I am crossing my fingers, knocking on wood it doesn't come soon but we do have heat on its getting that chill in the air.

Thank you to everyone last week for visiting and leaving me such beautiful comments to read. I am off to see what everyone else has been up to. Have a fantastic Wednesday and thanks for visiting today. 
Hugs ~Anne 🤗

WOYWW #377



 Well boy has time really flowing by for me and I am back from a short break for WOYWW. Head over to our wonderful Julia's site who created all this amazing desk hopping.

Let me start out by saying my husband and I decided to go on a 9 day trip to Kelowna, British Columbia to visit his family, flight was booked and we where off in less then 24 hours the last week of July til til first week of August. It was just a vacation for the two of us and left our children at home but let me say their 20, 18 and almost 17 now and ground rules where laid down firm. We have great girls to.......and they where all fine and so house.

So what have I been up to lately......


Here is an over look of my work space and yes it has been all tidied and cleaned up as my oldest daughter spilled her coffee and it seemly went over both tables and at that time you could not see either table as it has been a dumping ground with things I have purchased and been making. I am glad to say after a month I have put it all away.


Here is a close up of my new Happy Planner I picked up and right beside it is a large pile of printed stickers. I do not have my Cricut hocked up to the craft room so I am fussy cutting them all out and yes it seems crazy to print out so many at once but we are using my husbands printer due to all the colour cartridges he has for his.......he thought he needed colour but not as many as he goes though black so much more with all the documents at work. So bonus for me I have only used one full one and have so many more to go.


Here is the other table with the album in the top I just have to put a few photo matts in and decorate the cover. The pen and glue runner is for my dear sister in law Josie who loved the album when they came for a visit in earlier July. So I am going to finish it all up and send it in the mail soon. The album is a new one I made as soon as we got back from vacation just had to play with paper and glue as it had been so long. I am just adding the photo mats and a bit of decorating and this one will be done. 


Also I did finish another one of my summer layouts for the local stores challenge and 6 left to do by the end of August....not sure I will make it but I am loving the ones I have made and have a few others on the go but did loss a few things due to the coffee spill and it really isn't to noticeable on this layout as I did my best to clean it up.

Just want to say thank you to everyone who is visiting and leaves me such wonderful comments as it trully brightens my day.  I am going to try my best today to hop around to as many desks as I can before we leave to Edmonton as my husband and I are taking his brother for heart surgery as it is a drive to get there and he has to be there for Thursday early morning. We're back to Friday afternoon and then we are leaving next week down to Calgary for business meeting for his company. So I will do my best to get around and to everyone have a fantastic week.

Hugs ~Anne 😎

WOYWW #371


Hello everyone and it's Wednesday so is is desk peeking time and if you are new to this pop over to Lunch Lady Jan's site as she is leading the pack while our dear Julia is recovering from surgery. Have fun and join in to a desk hop every Wednesday to see what such creative friends are up to.

Well to my desk or I should more say desks as I taken up two this last week. Okay here is a snap shot of desk one......

 

Well I have almost finished the mini album just decorating the front cover which is seeming to take its sweet time as I am not exactly sure what to put on it. When I am completely finished I will post up detailed pictures. and to the left is the paper pad and coloured distressed paper I used. So basicly it sitting on my main desk so if I do come up with an idea it is ready to finish.Now to desk two....


Here is my summer challenge I am doing at the local scrapbooking store which entails making eight 12x12 layouts for the for July and August. I did make a post earlier which has a detailed list of the items I received in my kit.Here is the link if you want to see all the items  http://craftyandjustsweetcreations.blogspot.ca/2016/07/summer-challenge-2016.html
As you can see I have started one of the layouts not yet finished but when I am finished but it is a camping layout. I do have some ideas started for other layouts as they are piling up in the top left hand corner not sure I will use them all but am having fun with my Cricut cutting things out when I have a minute here and there. In the mini photo case is he embellisments that came in the kit so not to get mixed up with other things that float around my desk and I did pick up a few wood shapes that I might use on them also ....who knows at this point but once this one is done 7 left to go.

Yes and I also received some mail my ATC from Sue Jone from the WOYWW anniversary swap which is gorgeous love the hand pained flower must remember to ask her what she used to colour it in I love the vibrant colors and the shine to it. The left is a pocket letter from my sister Nikki Halloween style and it was a great surprise from here and I know it isn't a true pocket letter and there is no note but really where sister and no letter required besides two extra pockets for goodies.lol

There flip side of the pocket letter which holds one set of coloured images I so love of hers and a few extra blank stamped out ones for me to colour. I am not the best at colour in images but practice makes perfect....maybe.


There it is seemed to be a tad longer post then I thought it would be there goes my keep it quick. I will try to hop to as many desks as I can but I am doing a few things around the house before my sister in law and her family shows up thrusday to stay with us for a bit and then I work in the afternoon so I am sorry if I don't get around to everyone but will I will try my best to get to as many as I can. Also I would like to say thank you to everyone who popped by last week and left comments for me and it trully brighten my day 😎. Have a fantastic WOYWW everyone and a wonderful week.
Hugs ~Anne

Okay to now what you have come for a peek of my desk but I am working from the kitchen table Tuesday night as I have my stuff in a bin to take with me to work. I am glad to say I am so close to to being done and I will post pictures of it all when done. 


Also I did receive in the mail a ATC from Andrea from WOYWW anniversary swap and she enclosed it in a card with a few extra goodies. I do so love the die cut of the butterfly and glad it arrived before the Canada post gets locked out this Friday.



My days are filled with cleaning our camper and house getting ready for family to come next Wednesday or Thursday when they arrive. I will hope around to as many desks today as I can before I am off to work and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who stopped by last week leaving me such wonderful comments and appreciate each one greatly.
