A Bird in the Rose Garden

I had a little play with cutting my own stencils on the Cameo machine so I was able to ink through this stencil with Distress Inks and also cut out the matching roses as decoration.

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? 247

Wednesday again so here is a view of my desk this week....

Today I have been working on some buttonholes for the younger members of the Bridal party based on an idea I saw in a magazine. This way there will be no shredded roses before the ceremony starts!
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my Blogiversary post. I randomly selected a winner - Eliza and Yoda! So a little parcel will be making it's way to them.
So if you enjoyed a trip around my desk and would like to see more pop over to Stamping Ground where you can visit desks from around the world.

Wedding Album 2 -page 7

There was so much detail in these photographs that the layout remained very subtle and bridal. Heart die cuts were added to an embossed white background, delicate crystal sprinkles were scattered across the pages.

Whats on your workdesk Wednesday? 244

Well I don't know what happened but I missed last week minute it was Monday and suddenly it was the weekend again! There had been plenty going on, some prep for workshops and much Wedding planning including the shopping trip for the Mother of the Bride outfit. Now don't get me started on how bad some of those see being the quirky artistic type.....well I will keep you in suspense a little longer!!

Here is my desk this week...I have started a journal on the wedding as there have been so many funny moments and things people have said that I wanted to document them all for her.

 I am aiming for a sketchbook / teenage diary style....that is a plate of Haggis at the bottom of the page...long story!

I finished all the favours with the seed hearts and am very pleased with the result. Order of Service and Menus on the way too. How organised am I??

Well if you want to snoop visit desks form all over the globe pop over to Stamping Ground and settle in for an interesting journey.
