WOYWW 4th May 2011

One hundred WOYWW's!!!  That's a lot of Wednesdays.... and even more desks!! LOL  I had to turn my pc off because there was thunder and lightning (not to mention hail stones) so I'll be quick....
Not looking very tidy but that's because I am in the middle of making a mini book...
This is as far as I have got with it.... the covers!! Chris is home for 5 days and so I haven't spent as much time in the scrap room playing.
though I did manage to find this in the local dollar store.... LOL I have no idea what I will do with that humungous roll of tickets but it was cheaper than buying the die and making my own!!
If you want to see the very long list of What's on Your Work Desk participants go to Julia's and check it all out.

  8. Oh my, that's a lot of tickets, lol.

    It's times when things like thunderstorms (and Earth Day) make it impossible to have the computer on that I realise how much I NEED my connection with the world wide web. XD

    I found your blog from WOYWW and I look forward to seeing how your mini book project comes along.

  30. I just love the layout and embellishments. The question is what comes first. BIA holes and then decorate???

  31. You can have tickets on yourself and everybody else now. ;-0 My mind is buzzing with ideas. I've seen those tickets in our newsagent. Your mini-book looks interesting. Will you use the BIA.

  37. Thanks for helping with my question.
    I have a blue BIA and I used Zutter chipboard covers with scrapbook paper on ( maybe too heavy a paper) but I couldn't get it into the BIA without a hammer LOL
