WOYWW?? What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday and THE BOOK!

Hi and Happy New Year to all! Well here we are at the first WOYWW of 2012. Hope everyone had a great Christmas and managed to get all of their projects finished in time :o) I did finally complete "The Book" I had been working on in the run up to Christmas, you can see photo's of that if you would like after my desk pic.

Here is my desk, you will see a card I finished at the weekend (better photo's in my previous post) There's some Xcut dies and Rose Colored Glasses papers which were Xmas gifts which I couldn't wait to get playing with.

And here are the photo's of the book I was working on in the run up to Christmas, would love hear what you think of it. My Mum loved it so all the hard work was worth it :o)
