WOYYW : 220

If you want to learn more about WOYWW, see the originator and creator extraordinaire Julia right here.

Today I'm showing my workdesk from last week.  I was in paradise:

This vacation was very relaxing.    The boys slept as long as they wanted, we didn't need to watch the clock, and our nights were spent at the beach house relaxing even more.  ahhhh - can I go back?!

But even while in paradise, I knew I wanted to keep my hands crafty.  There was plenty of time for this!

So I took my little pink suitcase packed with the August Mini Album Kit from JBS.  It is sooo easy to scrap on vacation with a kit.  You can see parts of the mini album kit and main papercrafting kit around the table.  I ended up breaking my hole punch, so I had to use this funny looking screwdriver, but other than that, I had everything I needed.

This is the mini - I'll place photos inside from a hike we took at a nearby wildlife refuge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  6. This is a great mini album.
    Where is that slice of paradise? It looks wonderful!

  7. Betsy, thanks for visiting me, I can assure the butterfly was very real, I have several pics of just the buddlea flowers where the butterfly had been 2 seconds before my camera clicked. There were about fifty of them all round this bush and none of them wanted their picture taken.
    I love you mini album, it is a good idea taking a kit with you, I have taken kits with me on holiday before now. Your holiday looked far more luxurious than mine, hope you enjoyed it,

  10. Oh yes, totally stunning. Its soon time for my holiday/vacation - I am loving reading all the deskers who take crafts with them too. I just cannot wait for that 'no time' thing for a week.
