WOYWW #745

It is Wednesday so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

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 #745

Well, I took a photo last week and then totally forgot to write my post...and suddenly it was Thursday! Anyway what I meant to share was this journal page, based on a workshop by Melinda Johns.

This week we are over in East Gippsland looking after the granddaughters so just a little crafting going on.

I was making this journal page in my upcycled diary. The images are from Raquel Burillo Perez Colouring Book.

We also made shower steamers.

I have also been making pages for the next Michelle Grant's Creative Warriors challenge:

Last Friday was a Zoom craft and chat with the UK Stampers Network. I try and join in even though the time difference to Australia is not easy. I always was a member of this group when I lived in the UK.

We made a little folder:

Wishing you a happy week...and hope to get around to you all this week...

Happy WOYWW!
