woyww 320 - Preparations for Saturdayy's Crop

Hello there
 
It is Wednesday, I have no dancing lesson tonight, so I can join in with the Hostess Julia for her weekly nosey round the crafting blog world which is known as What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!! Yeay!!!  Been a while since I have joined in. 
 
So I will show you my desk here......
 
 This is an album I am making of Mr Hettie and my trip to Amsterdam.  Isn't that paper just divine?  It is Graphic 45 that I have been saving to use for some time.  I want to get it to the stage where all the tags are made and I can just fiddle and faddle on Saturday for the Annual Crop.  Are you going?  I have all my ATCs ready for the PIF which is coming up real soon, but don't try and strain your eyes to see them....I made sure they were well out of sight!! 
 
 Here are some of the offcuts which I have acquired from making the pages and tags.  I will no doubt use most of them throughout the album.
And those stamps you can see leaning up against my twirly-whirly are from Penny Black. I was lucky enough to be picked last month in their monthly challenge.  Aren't they adorable.
 
Now then.  I have shown you my desk, please leave a comment and I will come and look at yours, and don't forget to stop and call by Miss Julia's desk too. 
 
Thanks for calling by.
 
Hettie

Totally awesome looking book. Even though I'm not a scrapbooker, G45 makes the very BEST paper.

Please save one of your ATCs for me, since I've sent mine to Julia for the crop. I'll be there in spirit, if not in person. Happy last Wed before the crop from #9.

I love G45 papers and have a few pads but spend more time looking at them than crafting with them! Look forward to seeing you Saturday!! Take care Zo xx 51
