What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #16

For the first time in 2 1/2 months, the front room table is completely clean!


If you saw my post yesterday, you already know that last week I completed the two-volume scrapbook-for-hire project I've been working on as time allowed over the past couple of months. It felt so good to create title blocks for the front of these albums and deliver them to my client.


The two albums hold a total of 146 layouts. Two-thirds of the pages are 12x12 layouts with cardstock and patterned paper backgrounds with a combination of photos and memorabilia.


The other third of the pages are various 12x12 divided page protectors that mostly hold photos.


This was a FUN project - creating the layouts, sorting and editing photos, and "visiting" the many sites and countries that my client toured during the 14-day trip. Now, I really want to cruise the Mediterranean!

Joining in with Julia at Stamping Ground for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. What's on your workdesk this week?

It's a stunning project and I like the side effect of making you interested in a med cruise. I hope you get there one day.

That is an awesome project! I have a lot of pictures I need to get into scrap books and give out to my children. I keep procrastinating and putting it off! Thanks for visiting my desk earlier. I really enjoy WOYWW and the interaction with other crafty people. Vickie #43
