A work in progress

Hey there!   Its wednesday again.  I love wednesdays because its the middle of the week which means just two more days and its weekend again.  Don't we all love weekends. 

So, this is how my table looks like this morning,  its exam week and my son's reviewer is on top of my table for me to check if he did it right.  Oh,  and of course,  there's a transformers on my table. Don't ask who it is.  I have no idea.  I guess after reviewing he played again and placed his toy on my table. 
There's an old  readers digest book, I started to alter and haven't finished yet and the papers I want to play with it.  It really is a work in progress.

It  took me lots of patience to create the box using the book  and I think this will be the first and last book to alter.  Hopefully, next week I can share it with you.  I have finally scrapped the photo on my desk last week and its posted below this post.

Thanks for the visit and have a great day. Don't forget to check out Julia for other snoop!  Have fun snooping around other desks!

Lovely to see your son's stuff on your work desk. And what a great challenge to alter a book. It looks perfect now so I look forward to see it finished. Thanks for sharing.
Bye, Franka

Usually it is my daughter who is leaving her...stuff...all over my scrap table. Gotta love the kids! Good luck with the book! It must have taken the patience of a saint to cut through that many layers! Have a happy WOYWW! -Amanda

Altering books is one thing I have not tried yet, because it looks like a lot of work! Yours looks great though!
Happy WOYWW

Such a cute layout! I like the idea of the book becoming a box but I can see where your patience was required and I just know...I won't be doing that!! Now you're at the cover and decorating stage though, it's fun and can already tell it'll be worth it!

I'm having a quick trip round the WOYWWers before I start on my next batch of little African dresses. It's great to see what you're busy with this week.
