What's on your Workdesk Wednesday 85

Currently on my desk, I am trying to finish all my uncompleted layouts that have been in my basket for few months that need either journal, or picture or both. I've decide to try to finish these before doing any more challenges as I wasn't having my mojo going with all the mess that is surround me. I so need to clean and reorganize so i can create better without running into mess. lol
On the desk, is my christmas 2008 of our poor chalie brown tree. lol I was planning to use a very old chipboard stash that has glitter--Kurio chipboard that came in small package box. I remember getting them from Wal-mart. Well I ran into a problem with these chipboards not all the letter are there--for exame there is on I only one E etc. ect you name it there is not just enough letter. so if anyone have this in their stash and not using it--I'll be happy to take it off your hand. lol ugh Now i know why i quit buying aphla chipboard and stickers because of this. lol Yeah i know i could make my own but the problem is I don't have any silver glitter as I don't use glitter that much on my layouts. lol I'm thinking of diging out my plain chipboard and emboss them in silver embossing power. that will be a first for me to do.
I was planning to post the finished layouts last night but my kids decide to stay up past their bedtime. lol I think they knew I want to do some scrappin'. Here they are:
this was my daughter's after her first bath. Her cousins was helping me getting her dress.
I use new arrival for the oneies. and very old rub on for title and decoration in middle.
This is my daughter's first easter egg hunt with her cousins.
Before I knew about Picsa--I created the collage on right myself by sizing and cutting. I will be using Picsa for collage in future. lol it was alot of work.
This one is my favorite layout and picture. you really can't see it but I use solid red texture cardstock for backgroun, green crimp texture behind the title and on bottom. I had the dog paw pp in my stash, I cut a strip for on the bottom and then lefteover of it--it has brown on back and use two small strips and tear it and curl it up. The ribbon from american craft. the sticker was in my dog stash. chipboard letters from Kurio. journal card was from my stash as well. lol Alot of them was from my stash that I have been hoarding or didn't use until i had the right layout. lol Hope you enjoy the layouts, sorry for glare I still can't find the right place to take picture of them. If you want to take a glimpse on what's on your workdesk, head on over to Julia's blog: Thanks for looking!

Cute layouts! I always seem to have too many projects going at once and don't get them finished..good luck to finishing yours, getting organized, and getting your mojo back!!!

And thank you for wishing me well on my wedding!! :)

This is me: Sweet Pete said...

Isn't it hard to get back to layouts you didn't finish. I have tons of those from my sons baby book, especially finishing up the journaling. Um, son is 14 now. LOL So by the time I get to those layouts I'll have forgotten the details. So good for you for making that your goal!!
Oh, and I love the photo of the baby w/the dog. Too darn cute!

Tracy said...

Lovely layouts. You are rock'n your goal!!
I still make my layouts collages the ol'fashion way. I should probably learn the picasa thing eh?

HarmonySweetpea said...

Lovely layouts Michele. Love the puppy love one. It was because of never having enough letters in an alphabet that I started exploring what I could use instead of stickers and the like. First I madly wanted an alphabet punch set, then I discovered stamping (waiting on a set) but now even better... I have a cuttlebug on the way with 3 different alphabet styles :-D

Glad you finally got the chance to post up your layouts :-)

Susan Allan said...

You have got lots to finish and lots of wonderful layouts to do in the future; a ready supply of happy moments.

You're layouts look GREAT! I love the Puppy Love one :)

I started off with one box with unfinished projects in, it has now grown to two boxes, so I have a lot to do to catch up, not to mention the cross stitch unicorn for one grandaughter, and a knitted shawl for the latest expected baby, an embroidery picture I started 10 years ago ....... and so it goes on. The problem with letters is the same with peeloffs, which is why I now try to print out and emboss my own sentiments.


Such a busy area! Looks like you have lots going on...What a wonderful mess!

Sue, a.k.a. midwestgirl said...

Nice peek at your desk. I'm like you, too many unfinished projects bothers me and I just have to get them done!

Tertia said...

Lovely LO's. I think it might help if I finish everything I started before starting another thing too.

WOW! Very busy! LO are awesome.

minnie_mac said...

Lovely layouts. Not having the right alphabet letters seems a perennial problem. I now die-cut.


Ali said...

That's admirably organised of you, to finish those LOs before starting any more. I wish I could manage to do likewise but I lack the discipline! :lol:

Thanks for sharing. :)
