What's on your workdesk? Wednesday 136

It's that time of the week again, WOYWW?  Follow the link to have a peep into the lives of other crafters, you won't fail to be inspired by all the amazingly clever crafters there are in the blogosphere.

So, on to my desk this Wednesday.  As you can see it's quite a clear desk this week.  Now that I've finished 2011 Project Life (yay!) I've put away the day to day stuff that I had been keeping out ready to ready to hand.  Actually, read "put away" to "put in another room, out of sight".  I had been dithering about doing Project Life in 2012 simply because it is so time consuming but once I started looking back through my album and simply loving all the memories it brought back, that I've decided to give it another go this year, but I'm going DIGITAL and have downloaded the templates from Jessica Sprague!  Eeek, I'm not very clever on Photoshop Elements and have already come across no end of problems but I won't bore you with the details...

So, back to my workdesk.  I'm determined to finish off all those nearly done layouts so this is one that I started some time ago.  It's a layout featuring me and my daughter but I really didn't have any nice photos so put it to one side.  Over Christmas I think I managed to get a couple of nice ones so will try and hopefully will be able to do the finishing touches.

In the top RH corner is another layout - one I had finished but two friends of mine are interested in scrapbooking and are coming round once a week to do an album for their sons and are using my layout as a starting point.  I'm really looking forward to getting on with some scrapbooking this year and really will get those unfinished layouts done - watch this space!

Have a great week crafting,

Ooh Sue, going digi..good for you, am in awe! I too have resolved to get on with overdue LOs, am actually not behind on this resolution thanks to last weekends crop. Love the planning shown on your desk, that striped background is really pretty.

I’m looking forward to doing some more heritage pages for my album this year Sue. I don’t really class myself as a scrapbooker but this is a project that was started a few years back and is on-going.

Must say, it helps to have a clear desk to work on though!

Thanks for stopping by this week and ……..
Happy Crafting!

I've tried the digi pages and they are really nice but I still like the old fashioned way better! Good for you finishing up those projects, I'm planning the same for myself so I hope I follow through and don't get sidetracked as usual! Thanks for the peek!

Finishing up incomplete projects always gives me such a sense of accomplishment. I hope you do well with your goal of finishing up those layouts. We'll keep looking for them!

Looks like the start of some pretty pages! I love digital scrapbooking! Much easier to store the "papers" etc. :)

Lovely LO's on your desk but what is this about going digi? I think it is a great idea but I am not sure I would have the know how to do it. Good luck - will look forward to seeing your progress.
Thanks for sharing and for commenting on my blog - Hugs, Neet xx
