I did it! I finished the album and it is sat next to me waiting to be posted in the morning. Its been a labour of love but I hope that it goes down well with the people who are giving it and to the person who is retiring.
I had so much planned for this week but both children have had a bit of a cold so my tip of a craft room will have to stay as such for a little while longer.
This was desk once I had finished the final page. That gap in the middle there is where I was working on the pages so it doesn't count as clear space at all! And just pretend you can't see that half eaten slice of cherry cake there... ahem...
I ran out of space and my plug sockets are in daft places so I tend to do my embossing on the floor. I embossed a number of cogs / gears in a copper coloured powder to hopefully fit the theme of the car.
Oh my. This is my die-cutting area which saw a fair bit of action of the past week. All the teeny pieces from inside the gears and the left overs from the scraps are mixed up with dies and packaging and Cuttlebug plates so I need to be really careful when I clear this little lot up! It looks a LOT worse in real life.
The result of all that hard work is a pile of 40 layouts ready for the chap with the fabulous purple 1974 MGB to fill up with photos, ephemera and journalling. The top one there is the first page and they are all in the corduroy album and well protected now.
I'm cropping on Saturday so I need to get sorted quick smart with what I'm taking. I can tell you that it will not involve grungy MME papers, cog dies, the colour purple, a pie crust border punch or a double page layout. I thank you.
Time to check out what's on everyone else's desk this week I think, and say hi to Julia while you are there won't you.
Bye for now
