WOYWW - Exciting News

Hi everyone,
Here we are on another mid-week desk peek, as created by the talented Julia.

Firstly I would like to share my exciting news with you all. I am now a member of the Scrapbudz design team. I have completed my first DT layout for the April sketch challenge, however you will have to wait until Friday to see that one, when the challenge goes live. Scrapbudz has two challenges each month. A sketch challenge on the first of the month, and a latte and cream inspiration challenge mid month. I can't wait to get started on my latte and cream layout. Its going to be a yummy one! Pop on over and check out the blog and linked store. If you're quick, there is still time to finish the March latte and cream challenge... which is a super awesome green dessert inspiration. By now most of you probably know I love green!

So on other news, I completed my first DT layout for Scrapbooking Haven on the weekend. You can find the post here. I am also working on my next layout from my pack of awesome DT goodies.

Here is a sneak peak at my second layout:

 And the bits and pieces of the beautiful papers Amy sent me to work with. I am sooooo in love with these Teresa Collins papers.
 As you can see, my mountain of mess is getting worse. I need to stop buying things. I have several Kaiser OTP item ready to be put together and decorated so overall the floor space around the desk is getting smaller. Poor husband... and poor Felix, who has taken to sleeping in the box. Well actually, she loves that type of thing so at least I'm keeping someone happy.

Otherwise I'm afraid my work desk has been home to a different kind of work this week too. Assignments for the mangement course my work is putting me through. Its kind of cool, as I'm not actually a manager, so its a compliment that I'm being trained up ready for the day that comes that I am a manager. But really... all I want to do is scrapbook. Not type up 2,500 word essays on emotional intelligence ;-)

This coming weekend I'll have to have my camera charged and ready to go as hubby and I are going on a dolphin watching cruise. Kind of funny actually, living in Queensland, that we have never done anything like this before. It was actually from an experience voucher given to us for an engagement present last year so we finally redeemed it for something fun together.

Wow, so many posts from me this week. It's been a busy week of creating. Hopefully you aren't all sick of visiting me yet! Of course I love your comments so please do keep them coming.

Another DT, that's brilliant news, Holly. Many Congratulations. I'm not surprised they are all snapping you up, your pages are wonderful.
Here in the UK, Mothering Sunday is this Sunday, April 3rd but I think you have it at a different time and America has it another time to you, it's all very confusing!!
Thanks for stopping by and your lovely comments and enjoy your Dolphin trip, I'm very envious.
Hugs Lisax

Hello Holly, Love your layouts - yes, I've had a sneaky peak at more recent posts. Hope your feet are recovering and thanks for sharing the photo of the wreck - never thought that boats could be put to good use when all rusty and old. Teresa Collins papers are favourites of mine too. Elizabeth x #96
