WOYWW and projects to share

Wow,  where did the time go?  Its wednesday once again and I am grateful for all your visits last week and comments. I had a busy week but still got time to be creative and I know,  I was pretty busy creating ATC's.  My addiction to it is coming back.  I get to use my scraps to create my art cards and trade with friends around the world.

Here's the wall in my desk.  I always make sure that my stuff are within my reach.  That is an altered corkboard which I had collage with my sons's photos,  the bookmark I got from OWOH this year, my art card, my disney autograph book (who says kids should be the only ones to have an autograph book?) and my sons drawings and doodles and his school year calendar (so that I won't forget important dates in school).

Here's a close up of my art card and Zid's photo in the corkboard.  The art card used to be in my 7gypsies art tray before I gave it a new look with Inkido products.

Here's my desk with a finished lay-out I made for a sketch at Design Dollies, the dmc thread  I'm using for crocheting doilies (I finished one already and used in my lay-out below) and an ATC  I'm trading with  a friend.  If you are a scrapbooker like me and haven't heard of the Dollhouse yet,  you will love to play with them too.  They have sketch, color and elements challenges.

Here's my lay-out  up close -  "Darling Angels"   Its is titled such because we named our group Darling Angels of the Resort. We all worked together in a beautiful island resort here in the Philippines - Lagen Island Resort 9 years ago and we have been friends all these years even after our life there. 
For this lay-out,  I used the sketch at the dollhouse.
Materials:  Inkido cs, Pink Paislee pp, inkido blooms, My Mind's Eye chipboard and pp and my very own crochet doily.
Journaling:  We will always be friends til wrinkled skin and grey hair.  I miss you guys.  The Darling angels at Greenbelt 5  ( Lesley wasn't here)

And finally,  my "Free" ATC.  I really love it when I get to use my scraps.

Have a nice day and happy blogging.  Don't forget to check out Julia's blog to learn more about this wednesday phenomenon in the blog world.

Love your free atc and the banner looks fun hanging on your wall. Thanks for the snoop.

I'm super impressed that you crocheted your doily for the layout. That puts it over the top, in my books.

I always love it when I can use scraps. It's hard to believe that adorable "free" ATC was made from scraps alone. Super job. Happy WOYWW.
