WOYWW #52 Celebration and My holiday week and creations!

First I want to say a quick congratulations to my brother and his family who are expecting a third boy at the end of August, that will be nephew number 8, still no girls in sight. I can't wait to meet him.

Ok so here we are, even though I am pretty new to WOYWW! I wanted to join in with the week 52 celebration, Congratulations to Julia Dunnit, the wonderful woman who started this great fun weekly Jaunt around creative blogger's craft area's, a world which I am loving being a part of.

My celebration piece is a door plaque for our craft room, inspired buy all the delicious stash and art I have seen on my trip around all you WOYWWers and here it is:
As I actually finished the plaque a while ago I wanted to show you what was actually on my work desk, so the real answer was at first my mum lol as we share a side of the table and she was working on it lol, then I decided to make myself a space downstairs, I got as far putting a Matt down when 2 little boys wanted to play with their craft planet kit, so the new answer to WOYWW? is.........
...........................................2 little boys and a crafts planet kit LOL.
....and here is what we made, a spider!!!
Robbie named him Bruce after the doggy next door.
Here is a closer look, we had lots of fun making him.
This is a set of ATC's I made this week as part of a giveaway which is over on Vic's blog here. I love Graphic 45 papers at the moment.
I enjoyed making them and I have to say, 2 of my fav. things right now are my Tiny Attacher, and my Tim Holtz film strip ribbon.
We got the boys some new summer clothes, here they are trying on one of the outfits.
Here is a picture my mum took, I sent my nephews, ben and Jake a small cuddly Gruffalo each, which mum said they absolutely love, so she took a picture of them hugging them while their mum read the story to them. I wonder how they will take to there new little brother when he arrives!?!?!?!
During my week off we went to The Edinburgh Playhouse to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which was fabulous, I was really impressed.
Here is the Layout that I managed to get finished at our crop last week, I really like it but I keep thinking something is missing!!?????
I love these pins and yummy Prima's
and these Jenny Bowlin Butterflies are fabby too.
And here is the finished piece.

This is a set of ATC's I am working on, I have overlapped these pieces of paper and now I am pondering where to go next.

That is all from me for today, if you managed to make it through to the end then well done and happy creating.

A layout and lots of yummy new stash! Well I say new stash, it is brand new just bought but may be old hat to some of you as it has been so long since I had a stash splurge, what with the wedding and everything lol but we did get some yummy prima and the new Capella collection pack by BG! and the set of plain BG called Practical,YUMMMMY!

OK so on my work desk today: is 2 piles of new stash (Mum bought it for me! bless her xxx) and a layout as I could not wait to use some of it lol. The Tonic Scissors are FANTASTIC!!! The papers in the first picture that are hidden by all the rest of the yummies are mainly Prima and are gorgeous.

Here is my latest layout:

I will be going round to all the other WOYWWers this week I shall have more time but it wont be all today a I don't get home until late. I am also hoping the stash fairy will bring me the 3 new sets of BG papers called Basic's!!! and at least some of Max and Whiskers! So I pop over quickly to the BG website to see which (if not all 3) basic ranges I want, just to discover 2 gorgeous new ranges, OLIVER and OLIVIA YUMMMMMY!!! can't wait!
Robbie went to a Fancy Dress party this week as a Pirate, he was not too sure at first but loved it in the end. He has been fighting a mild form of German Measles too, poor lamb.
Happy creating. Jay xxxx

Thank you so much to everyone who visited me on WOYWW, I was not able to get around to the other people who joined in this week, things have been a little hectic but I will be back in the swing of it for the next few weeks I promise and I still have a few days to get around to as many as possible.

Happy Creating Jay xxx

Well this is so much fun! My second week on WOYWW. I have several planned projects about to start, 1 is a layout and the other a plaque, I am looking forward to both but some of the contributing stash is just in a pile on my desk today, along with my laptop which is currently charging my Ipod ready for work lol.
For a closer inspection lol !!
I do love my music! It is a godsend with 5 hours commuting a day.
I am looking forward to scrapping and blog hopping around to see all of the other desk who join in to WOYWW.

Had a great day out shopping with mum today. We had lunch out and spent some quality time together, which was brilliant, even when you live with someone, quality time proves to be essential.

So What's On YOUR Workdesk????

Have a great day. Jay xx

So cute! New Layout and What a girl wants!!

OK! So I was looking through the cabinets at work and I was studying a newish range we had called charming tales, with totally cute little mice and when I read the mug on this little cutie I knew it has to come home to our craft room, I have never seen a scrapping related figurine before, so so cute. I have put one away until payday lol.

Ok! so I got my Che last night and produced a layout that I quite like, so I thought I would share it here:
I had great fun making this corner piece with bits cut from 1 sheet of Graphic 45 paper and a piece of string. I used stash from lots of era's on this layout.
I am pleased with how it turned out,although I kept finding things I could have changed.
And OMGosh! A girl like me, wants stash like this, being the BG lover that I am lol.
I can't wait for these ranges, the basic is so up my street; then the Cappella will be great for my wedding pictures and;
Max and whiskers will be brilliant for the cats.
For something totally Random, I loved this picture, it made me smile anything that can make a person smile has to be good.
That's me for today, happy creating. Jay xxx
