WOYWW #365

Yippie it is Wednesday and you know what that means WOYWW which was created by Julia but head over to Lady Jan's blog for details while Julia is on holidays to find out all the details.

Here is my desk dusted and tidied up as I had to dust with the windows being opened and all the construction that is going on. I have finally started a new mini album with the paper line called "hello sunshine" Right above the pink little sisters came in the mail last week from a family friend back home of my wedding which I can not believe at times will be 22 years this up coming September where does the time go. 

Here is the layout I finished last week for the challenge at the local scrapbooking store.

Here is a close up as I twisted the twine thought the letters connected to a brad to the lifesaver. 

Here is the close up as I used a bunch of cut out rocks inked and a few tiny she'll stickers to give a rock beach front. I used light blue vellum and a white chalk marker to make the wave cresting for the photo mat and the bottom of the layout.

Here is one of the ATC swaps I received in the mail from Nikki and she added some very cut coloured images and some not so I might give my colour in a go as I am not so good with the shading . She decorated the cute little envelope with my name which was tucked in the cute coffee card. She even decorated the mail which I just love all her hand drawn envelopes I get. 

Just wanted to any thank you to everyone last week for taking the time to leave such sweet comment and to everyone who swapped ATC with me and here is my list.

  6. That scrapbook page would be just right for our two daughters and families as they are off to the water this weekend in a tall ship called Morning Star. First time out for one half of the family. Hope they have as good a time as your page suggests!!! Enjoy the mini album.
    Take care. God bless.
