Paper buttons ribbons and lace

Paper, buttons, ribbon and lace
cover my desk, and all over the place
are bits and bobs and sparklies and glue,
what am I doing? I haven't a clue.
Where are my scissors? where is that pen?
I put them down somewhere but I don't know when.
My cutting mat is the only clear space,
will I finish the layout at this pace?
Never mind I've had fun and I scrapped all day long,
I've had a good time, now that can't be wrong.
Created four pages, used lots of stuff
So what if there's a muddle, that fair enough.

One of these days, when I have enough energy and I don't feel like scrapping but I need to do something perhaps, just perhaps, I'll clear up the mess and find something I lost years ago

..................or perhaps not

I've photographed my messy desk enough times so I'm not taking another one just to show here but I will share the four pages completed this weekend

This first one was a class on Friday night but I added my own twists to it.
Together we are Family

This one was done for a challenge that one of my teamies set to do either coffee or vineyard colour scheme I chose coffee
to add a magpie moment (something collected and used that has nothing to do with scrapping)
Use pearls, either beads pearly buttons or liquid pearl.
and to interpret laid back any way we like
Lie Back & Relax

having done that one of my son in law asleep with his tiny son I had to do another with my daughter in like mode (presumably dreaming of the time when she didn't need to take a nap during the day). This one also has a magpie moment the embellishment on the top left hand corner of the photo is made up of a hair clip a home made hat pin and a flower from a wedding bouquet.
Day Dreamer

and finally just because I found some more photos of my middle grandson which I hadn't used yet
Oh Those Eyes

A fun little poem, then four great scrap pages - quite a productive day, Mary. (and who cares if the desk is a mess? There's always tomorrow to tidy up!)

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
