WOYWW -No commenting on my nerdy behaviour please.

Good morning to all. and what a wonderful morning it is over here. The sun is shining and the birds are singing. It is now just after 5 in the morning over here and I am attempting to post before I go to work.My grandie, Liam (2) spent the night and he is happily eating his yoghurt. He insisted thst he wants to do it 'my own self', so it gives me a few minutes to type this
Now please, I do not want any comments about my nerdy behaviour LOL I scrapped, for the first time in over a year, I sat down and just played. such fun but.... my craftroom looked like a bomb went off in there when I was done. I swear I took everything I own out before I was happy with the end result. It looked so bad that I did the unthinkable... I cleaned people!!  When I went in there this morning to take the photo even I found it hard to believe that this is my desk, but I must say its a nice feeling to walk into my room and actually see how beautiful it is, it makes me remember why this is truly my happy plce.

This is the end result from my scrapping frenze. Not quite my normal style, but I had a lot of fun just doing it.
The first one is a picture of a group of teachers from the school where I work. Our one friend left the school to teach at another svhool and she wanted a photo of all her friends. She gave each of us a copy of the photo as a good bye present and it is such a special photo of some very special ladies that I wanted to do something with it. The background is plain white Bazzil cardstock.I spritzed some nists on a plastic sheet and then dropped the paper face down on the sheet, out came the brayer and this is the end result. I also randomly stamped some backgrouns stamps all over. Thr flower in the corner is handmade - some white Bazzil again, wrapped in tape I bought ages ago, I inked the edges and rolled the flower, put a brad in the middle and there you have it. The othe flowers all came from my stash. mostly Wild Orchid crafts with a Prima flower or two thronw in for good measure. A MS punch, some paper scraps and I was done
The next one is a photo of grandie(1). A typical fun summers day playing with a watergun.

The paper is from Upikit and the gears come from a pack I won as part of a door prize at a scrap day a long time ago.
Thats it from me folks, I have to get to work. Just wanted to say that little Tiani is having her last four Proton treatments this week and according to the doctors there is no sign of any cancer. We praise God for yet another miracle. Chevaunne, the girl who was bitten by the Cobra is recovering well and should have her skin graft in the next week or two.
Have a great week and remember to visit WOYWW to koin the biggest blog hop on the planet.

  5. You have a gorgeous, clean room!!! I love (and covet!) your paper storage too! The layouts you made are stunning - I really need to try that misting technique. I've seen lots of people do it, but I always think mine won't turn out nearly as pretty.

    Have a great week!

  16. Your pages are wonderful! I love how clean and beautiful your room looks. You did an awesome job. I sure wish it was sunny and warm here! We have had maybe two days in 30 where the sun has shined. Otherwise it is cold, dark, and grey here all of the time. It really gets to you! Hugs, Curt
