Whats on my workdesk Wednesday #200


This week has just flown by I have kids home on school holidays for two weeks one of my sons has just started a casual job so has to get up at 3am to get to work by 7....
So proud that he does this and goes to college after his shifts finish not bad for a nearly 17 year old....
Ive been grocery shopping with my Bella and my youngest son Drew this morning so it was nice to come back home and just sit in the garden watching my kids play in the sunshine....
Bella chasing her chick Helena trying to put it in her lamb basket just made me smile, but what made me laugh was our black chick following her everywhere....
This week I have been working on my smashbook again, and I am in th early stages of transforming an A4 binder folder into an album, it was a nasty orange colour but I have covered the cover and back in the remainders of my potato sack, painted it black and that is as far as I have got...
Other than that just ordered in some of Pink Paislee's hope chest papers and bits and pieces so cant wait for those to arrive..
I hope you all had a great easter it was fine one moment and then drizzly the next for us but we just had family time together and enjoying the break....
Well should fly now the boys are moving rooms so its chaotic right now....
Thanks to Julia for making our blog hop happen each week.

The start of my altered a4 folder

Some busy looking stuff there and life sounds idyllic with the children and the farmyard animals, it was like reading a book. Just a bit worried about your "sin" . Check your first para LOL.

Ohmy word you're a Smash genius! I love your pages. And those photos of your babies with the chicken - their little delighted faces - so sweet!

Great projects here, and I agree with you about your son, that is so cool. It is wonderful that you & your Hubby have obviously filled him with such a good life ethic, well done. You are rightly proud of him, and should be proud of yourselves too, for the influences you've given him. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #52 xx
