Another junk journal spread.

  I wanted to share what I was doing with my pages of upcycled cardboard with my friends at the UK Stampers Network. So I used this spread ...

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? #648


Wednesday again, so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

I am a bit late today as I have just come in from a couple of medical appointments -But will write my post now.   Oh I had forgotten your hour had changed... 

Also - apologies If I did not make it to your blog last week - I thought I had hopped round but now can't remember if I did...

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #648

Here's my 'desk shot' for today... 

A little bit untidy as I am in the middle of a 10 day virtual retreat with Michelle Grant Designs
That is Michelle on the screen.

So far I have completed a couple of pages to go in a junk journal (an unfinished third is on my desk), made a cover for one and put some pages together.

My Halloween journal turned out to be rather a large file so I couldn't add it -

I did the next of Carolyn Dube's starter prompts (open). 

We are very pleased that lockdown has eased - we can visit and be visited and shops are open again. So Ollie came to his first barbecue at our place...

Hope you are all well - stay safe...

Happy WOYWW !! Hope to call on all of you this week...


  1. Great that you are able to get out and about again! You've had a very creative time - your desk looks like you are having fun!! Happy WOYWW Helen #3

  2. Happy WOYWW. So much wonderful creatitivity. Then I saw Ollie - wish I could come and have a cuddle ! Ali x #6

  3. Great pages, as ever. I really love the rainbow drips. I really really need to make myself step away from ATCs and do an art journal page. I just keep putting it off. Loving the baby photos - I am a new great-aunt myself and my arms ache to cuddle a lovely little bundle of joy. I keep saying "one day..." and it can't come soon enough

    Happy WOYWW

  4. Aww, that last photo is a treasure, it’s gorgeous as is little Ollie! And you’re pretty fab too, lol!! Love the Halloween journal, goodness there’s so much detail there, it’s wonderful.

  5. Fabulous pages, the leafy one against the rainbow colours is really eyecatching, and I LOVE your Halloween journal. Wow, what a lot you've packed in to it - it's amazing and beautifully designed. Gorgeous pic of you and baby Oliver - what a cutie he is and I'm so glad you are able to meet up with family and friends again.
    Have a great week,

  6. Great to be able to see folks and be seen! I love your colourful page, really beautiful. Happy WOYWW Angela #14

  7. Love the rainbow drips page and the lady with oranges for hair also how you make up the junk journals, super.

    Nice to be back at my desk after the trauma of hand surgery, not completely fixed as my wrist is jolly sore and my thumb isn't moving fully yet, could be a few more months but I can do most things again just need to be jolly careful. BJ#15

  8. Aw look at Ollie, what a charmer! Gorgeous. So glad that restrictions are easing enough for you to congregate as a fam. A ten day retreat is impressive isn’t it, I do admire Michelle, that’s a lot of content and presence! Liking the leaves involved in each page, and some lovely colours. It must be very absorbing!

  9. Glad your lockdown has eased and you get to BBQ and see family again. It gets old after a while, doesn't it. Love the pages, and the girl's hair. Happy WOYWW! Elle #21 this week

  10. Hi Susan! Your Halloween Book is INCREDIBLE!!!!!! I love it, so creative, amazing!! You have been so busy, so creative, I'm in awe and slightly jealous! And we are both making junk journals! JJ Twins! Have a great week, Lindart #23

  11. Oh what fun, being able to rejoin the world, shops, friends and the list goes on. We've been pretty open here for quite awhile..Now they are talking shots for 5 to 11 yr olds to help curb the spread. I ? that but what ever works. They can host 40,000 at world series football games and so many other activities and all un masked. Beautiful colors on those pages, enjoy and have a great week

  12. So glad that you were able to see Ollie - what a cutie! Love your various journal pages. Happy WOYWW. Take care and stay safe, With love & God bless, Caro xxx (#16)

  13. Sweet baby Ollie, he's gorgeous and so are your journal pages. I fear that if people aren't more careful here that we will all be in Lockdown again. I really cannot understand why so many people seem to be against wearing masks. It's such as simple thing that helps to protect us and those around us. We were only listening today that there are worries again for the NHS as the winter arrives so we'll see. Take care and wishing you a very happy and creative woyww, hugs Angela x17x

  14. So glad you can be with Ollie, he looks really glad too. Glad your lockdown can be eased. . Lovely journal pages
    Take care and happy WOYWW

    Happy WOYWW,

  16. Stunning pages, love all the colors and stamps, designs and coloring you've added, so pretty, hugs, Lori m

  17. How good that you are able to have visitors again Susan. Always love seeing your latest journal work. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #4
