On My Desk...

Workdesk 61

Well, it's another WOYWW and I've decided that I'm no longer going to try and clean up my desk. It's late Tuesday night. Baby Z is asleep -- finally -- and I have time for myself. Let chaos reign!

I picked up my 12x12 prints yesterday and dumped them on the desk to sort into the appropriate albums later. Much later. Maybe even next Wednesday. Yikes.

The top layout is a "Belly Montage" using a digital template from Songbird Avenue. The background is a digi patterned paper from Rhonna Farrer. Here's a closer look:

Workdesk 61 (1)

I took a photo of my pregnant-rapidly-expanding-belly from 26 weeks onward. Rather than print each individual photo, it just seemed easier to make a montage digitally. I may just be headed down the digital path for right now since it's a little quicker for me. I realize I may have violated Stampin' Up!'s IDA by directing to another company & product. Oh well, bring it on...

Lacking motivation to scrap and make cards. Part of it is due to the heat and part of it is questioning whether I want to continue as a demo or not. Lots to think about there.

What's a Wednesday without a photo of Baby Z?

Baby Z August 2

My little buddy likes playing with his reflection in the mirror. He and Daddy have recently started playing this game.

For those who inquired, I still have stamps & accessories available. See this post for details.

Thanks for stopping by today!

ooh I do not envy you the hardwork of early motherhood - your montage is a most beautiful way to immortalise your pregnancy - and even tho' I no longer have babies I still craft late and into the wee small hours of the morning-

Nancy said...

I like the scrapbook page. Very nice layout. I'm sorry to read that SU is so stringent with their rules. Seems they would be a bit more flexible.

Baby in mirror is adorable, too.

Phree said...

I'm with you S, time too precius to spendit tidying when you can work on top!! Love the montage - do you know it never occurred to me to photo record my pregnancy...what a fool. SU!'s IDA is a bit restrictive isn't it...be interstng to say what sort of trouble you'll be in now - you are such a rebel!!
