If you look on Julia's blog The Stamping Ground you will see that she is hiding things! There's an anniversary coming up and you will find all the details about that and WOYWW here 
Nothing hiding here on my desk, although you may spot a few clues about what I've been doing.

The journal has only a few pages left and had some pages with backgrounds in. It sits here, pushed to one side while I do other things - hoping inspiration will come!!
Some things to put away pushed to the back…
The clues - Aahh! You have look for those!!

Film Review
Yay! I got to see 'Woman in Gold' last Thursday. A lovely reminder of our trip to Vienna last year. A fantastic film with quite a few of the places we saw on our trip! I went to see Klimt's 'The Kiss' on my own as hubby wanted to wander the gardens. I didn't photograph it but bought a post card, it didn't capture the beauty of the gold leaf though! The film is an interesting history lesson about Jewish persecution in the 2nd World war too! We may have to go back to Vienna - I think we missed a lot!!! 

I really do plan to make proper visits this week. Things took a different turn than expected last week! Today my GD is going to a friends house so we aren't needed and we are staying put this week -so that I can go with my friend Sarah to Port Sunlight to the Happy Stampers show on Saturday!! Hoping to meet up with some of you there!!!

Of course - I will be away the weekend after - it's THE WOYWW CROP!!! Oooooh! getting excited! No idea what to bring - I didn't get that much done last year he!he!

Thanks for looking, Chris

I am planning to send ATCs to those going to the crop so you can have one on the day and am sending a stamped addressed envelope for anyone wanting to swap with me but please don't feel you have's just what I am wanting to do as I am unable to go this year.

Your journal is very bright and has a nice warm summery feel to it. I sent a bunch of ATC for those that are off to the crop I'm sure they will be having a fantastic time.

Hi Chris i booked onto a Lindsay Mason workshop at the Craft Range in Burnley on May 9th when Lin's class was cancelled as i thought i wouldn't get a ticket with it being so close to the date. Your offer is much appreciated!!! Will be going in October so hope to see you there :-) xxx
