I am facilitating a
"Scrap"booking workshop this weekend.
Now don't go thinking I'm an expert!
It's a free workshop, and it's for the
women and children in our Christian community.
So I have been looking through my many scrapbooks
for examples I can show.
I do not use expensive materials,
and do not buy scrapbooking embellishments.
I use mainly magazine pages,
and drawings of my son!

This was taken in Thailand.
Angeli the monkey was quite memorable!

This was taken in Schenzen.
Our tour guide was annoying and told us lies.
My parents were covering their ears
because she talked nonstop.
The drawing is of my father when he was so bored
during one of the many stops at tourist traps.
The background leaf is a magazine page.
The frame is made by drawing
by marker on a cardboard,
putting glue and sprinkling sand on the glue.
We had a drawing session one New Year's Day.
I like putting hands in my layout,
and drawings.
The drawing is Luke Skywalker.

My son was crazy about Buzz Light Year
when he was young,
so I put his head on Buzz!
My son is now 16 years old,
and he loves looking through his scrapbooks!

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday
is hosted by the very amiable Julia.
