Oh My! I am late!!! Yes I've been to the cinema(review later!) but then I had a clothes voucher to spend at M and S before it ran out! We were already in a rush as my eldest son wanted to come and collect my small contribution to the table decorations at his wedding - it's this Friday!! Of course when he came we had a chat and then a bit of sorting out for our holiday in Austria next week and suddenly it's past 7.00pm! I'm sure Julia won't mind me being bit late - it is still Wednesday - you know the day when we hop around the World at Julia's Stamping Ground blog! 
So….my desk…
The first shot is with the goodies I bought at Happy Stampers( a great day and met up with some WOWWYers!) You will find excellent pictures of the event at Stamping by H and Sams blog
…and here as it is now - I haven't been in my craft room since this morning when I took the photos…
..couldn't resist a quick play with my distress sprays  - only bought two - consumer research you know!!!

Cinema review - We went to see 'The Equaliser' starring Denzil Washington - Quite Very violent in parts and some bad language but the story was very gripping and although not my usual choice of film  I did enjoy it. It certainly moved at a good pace and it didn't seem like just over two hours! The scariest part was seeing the trailers for Halloween type films!!!

I hope I can get to visit this weekend if not before, otherwise I'll see you in two weeks time!!
Thanks for looking, Chrisx

Hope the wedding goes well - ooh, today!! thanks for finding time to visit while I was out at Evita!! I did indeed have a great time- hoping to catch up on sleep at the weekend (grin) and craft too! Helen 3. xx oh, nice stash by the way...

Oh shucks! Guess you won't be around for the blog hop I am involved with. Never mind - you just enjoy the wedding and the holiday. Austria sounds wonderful to me.

Wow. You have a lot going on the next couple of weeks! I'm impressed you got a post up at all...... there's some people like me that end up visiting WOYWW posts through the weekend as I work full time so don't fret about posting a bit late!

I notice the stencil - the one with the butterflies. That definitely has my juices going!!!

Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (66)

Christine said...

Thanks for your visit earlier.
I know you are enjoying yourself at the wedding just now (congratulations to the lovely couple) but I am only just catching up .... You could always use that paper for some ATCs!!!!

But you aren't as late as I, dear friend. I MUST stop by Helen's but life has been a bit of a rush lately.

I like the butterfly stencil. I can see lots of uses for it.

Now I'm off to read about your son's wedding. I also look forward to seeing Austria through your eyes (and camera lens).

Shoshi said...

What a busy day you had! I love all the new stash (esp. those stencils) and your distress sprayed text pages are fabulous. I've been meaning to try this for ages. Love the result!

Happy belated WOYWW,
