WOYWW 252

So...I've been and come back again, straight back in to a run of being out and about! 
Florence and Rome were fabulous of course and photo's of Florence are here and here. If you want to come back later in the week Rome pictures are next and I promise to try and give you a little bit of a retail glimpse of Italy on next weeks desk! 
Oh! The desk - it's here courtesy of Julia of the Stamping Ground and a great opportunity to visit the desks of the world!

My desk is showing what I spent on Saturday at Happy Stampers - mind you it's a wonder I had time to spend money as so much time was spent chatting!!
Did I need more stamps? Apparently yes!
Along with some Tando Creative windows and TH ticket die


There are also these..
..and I also was lucky enough to collect my prize from Ali-craft who just happened to have a bargain box where I got these
So... have I had a chance to play with any of them? Of course, grabbed a few moments and made a journal page!
I did add a scrap and used my stencils too.

I'm on my way to visit if I can, thanks for looking, Chris

We'll that's quite a haul, and I love the page that you made with some of them, SOME of them! Florence looks amazing, am a bit green eyed about those photos, a real 'pinch me' type of holiday for me.

Firstly, I love your journal page - my favourite colours! And that flower stamp is lovely.
And then, Florence!! Ooh, you lucky thing - it's one of my favourite cities...so easy to stroll around and so many beautiful buildings to visit. I've never been to Rome however - that's one to go on my bucket list!

Hello Chris. It's lovely to see all the gorgeous stamps you've been buying! And what a beautiful journal page - I love those grasses and I expect you know blue is my favourite colour by now! I've had rather a poorly daughter. She was prescribed Antibiotics and unfortunately had a very severe reaction to them so I've been on nursing duties. She's on the mend now and I think I'm on top of my DT projects, so hopefully I'll be able to do some desking again soon! I have missed everybody so much! Julie Ann xx
