What's on My Workdesk Wednesday 223? A Layout in Progress

Hello Gentle WOYWWer from Julia's Place over at Stamping Ground.  Welcome to my desk in Cape Town, South Africa where the sun is trying to shine through the end of season rain clouds to warm the soggy ground.

Here is my desk in the beginning stages of planning a layout for my November class I am teaching at my store...

Last week was more crazy than I anticipated and I had no time to snoop desks, so I appreciate all the comments left by those of you who came to visit.

I am off to see what I can see on your desk now if I can before work today!



  1. Looks like a lovely LO is getting started on your desk. Have a great crafty week.

  4. Hi Bella!

    The colors you have chosen blend so beautifully with your photos. I need a heat tool like you have! I believe that one diffuses..

    Hugs! Robin 46

  5. I get most of my visits done before work too, after that these days it's hit and miss - so thanks for stopping by already! I love your desk today! Helen 19

  23. Great layout! I love the wonderful photos!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am sure hoping the 2 days home gets me back on track creating.
    Now that we are retired, I am going to use them as no spend days as well!

  24. OOh lovely papers, and how nice that you're including a big and scarey pattern..I find a lot of relative newbie scrapers are scared to dethof using big patterns...or worse, covering bits of pattern up. gorgeous that lovely smiley family deliberately wearing the right colours???!!!!

  25. Beautiful photos you're scrapping. Looks like you with short hair, your sister perhaps? I'm a self taught knitter (mostly) and have really got in to it over the last couple of years but never have enough time, so each project seems to take forever!!


  26. Your layout looks fun! I love the beautiful photos, too. Thank you so much for sharing. :)

  27. Aw what a cute little face, love the backing paper. thanks for your visit I would love to chuck the magazines .... trouble is I haven't really 'read' them yet lol
