WOYWW 376 - Finally some play

Hello Deskers,

I'm happy to share my desk is back to a  pile of papers. No time for mixed media play, but I've finally had some time to scrapbook. I use page kits that I put  together myself with just paper and no embellishments to work from so it makes it super easy. I've also been working on my least favorite part of scrapbooking -- the dreaded photo editing. I am developing a worksheet to let me know what size photos I have, whether the photos are for a layout, a pocket page (and which design) or a double page spread. Also if the photos go into a pocket page but with multiple smaller stories (I guess this would be my equivalent of PL). It's a work in progress.

Sorry on to the desk. As of yesterday evening, I have a page in progress. I had to go work on the journaling. My wine from last week is traded out for the giant water. Yesterday was  a mowing day - needed to hydrate.

and the layouts I've completed.
 I often don't include titles if I put it in the journaling.But I do think I'll go back and add "Beating the Storm" to this one.

So that's it for my desk. I'll catch up with you later over at Julia's, as it started thundering which brought both of my children downstairs at 6am, and I have them laying on the couch and chair to see if they'll go back to sleep. Of course, puppy thinks he's up for the day and being a terror, so I don't know how that'll work out for them.

Have a happy Wednesday!
