Hi Peeps
Oh my goodness ..... Wednesday again already? What happened to the rest of the week.... oh yes it was Easter wasn't it and that meant that I could eat chocolate for the first time in 61/2 weeks. goodness it tasted good.
Well as it is Wednesday its time to show you my desk, head desk hopper Julia has all the details so check it out..   here   .. you could even join in.
 so Ta Dah!
Not much crafting going on, most of what I have been doing is hidden until after the wedding... there are spies out there you know!

I'm sneaking a few minutes to work on my DLP journal. This challenge is to use mono chrome, I am using shades of red distress inks, there are 3 masked areas..... not sure what I am going to do on those.
At the back are the masks I have been using.
If you visited last week here is the finished pink leopard print box I was painting for DD3 wedding treasure chest.

I think It turned out quite well. It won't be easily missed anyway.
That's me done, short and sweet just how Julia likes it, so there is time to visit lots of desks.
Please leave your number so I can visit you back after work
Happy Wednesday


  1. I simply HAD to stop by before I head to bed. You sure have a lot of work in that journal page.

    Since you can't show anything before the wedding, we really want the full Monty afterward (grin).

    Glad to read you made it through Easter without any chocolate. Good for you. Hope your Easter was great, too. WOYWW wishes from # 9.

  2. Love the AJ page and the colours on all your sponges - yum!!
    Great job with the box - I'm sure she'll love it :)
    Happy WOYWW!

  17. Thank you for inspiring me. I have been thinking about decorating a chest like that but I was thinking along more traditional lines. You've inspired me to think a little bit bigger than that. Thank you.

    Happy WOYWW,
