Good morning crafty-desk perusing folks!  I am doing my best to join in with What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday and actually get around to a few more than I usually do.  You can link up too - find the information at Stamping Ground.

You might think that you've seen this pic before...
Yes you have, its the same as it was 3-4 weeks ago and we are still in the same boat except that we have lost our forever house and so we are looking again as well as trying to sell ours - its a horrid frustrating process but there we go.

I have been crafting in between tidying my desk though.  This was a layout I did for a recent challenge that involved using white or black as the main colours, using stamping or doodling and using ribbon or washi.
Its hard to believe my two eldest nieces ever looked like this!  The cutie on the left is now whipping my behind in the gym - who would have thought it at the time!  There's only 18 months between them so they really are #bff.
I used some embossing paste for the first time to give something interesting to the white background and I really liked the way it turned out.  Although its my often used messy stack style, the colour scheme is more unusual for me but I'm pleased with the end result.

I'm looking forward to a day of cropping on Saturday too - goodness knows I need it!

Bye for now
