Happy Anniversary WOYWW!! (#260)

Holy WOW!!  It's been FIVE YEARS since the very first What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday was posted!  That's 260 weeks of Wednesdays, 260 weeks of peeking at what's happening on the desks of fellow crafters, and 260 weeks of getting to know amazing bloggers and crafters from literally ALL over the world.  Happy anniversary WOYWW and congratulations Julia!  We love you and love what you've done to build this wonderful community of crafters.  Thank you.


On my desk this week is the very beginnings of a new venture for me...pocket pages.  I have a couple of kits I picked up from various different places, but I've shied away from it until now, because I just don't know much about it.  It seems like it's so easy that I think I'm missing something.  Then a couple of weeks ago, I started a smaller book as a gift for my daughter and her fiance, and I was surprised at how quick it all came together!

I made a part of a "Snap Book" pocket pages book for my daughter and her fiance for their wedding shower last week.  I totally forgot to take pics of it for the last WOYWW, so I saw her this weekend and snapped a few!  Here's what the front cover of the book looks like...


I found one of their engagements photos that went well with the orange spine on the book, and then just embellished a little with two different shades of washi tape.  I plan on posting the rest of the photos of the book and saying a few more things about it in a day or two, so stay tuned if you're interested!

For those of you who like to search, the WOYWW button.badge is located in the first pic above.  Let me know if you find it!!

Happy Wednesday!!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

I was the same Amy, and now, if it's a big 'thing' that I want to record in my scrapbook, I have a couple 12" LOs and a pocket page to add in extras, specially journalling. Works for me, but it's not in the PL category! Such a sweet picture for the front of the bridal book - will call by to see more for sure.
Can't find the badge...but love all the stuff you're working with, could easily come play at your place!

I'm in awe of pocket pages. I am not sure I've seen anything like them before.

I also found the badge, but it took me a minute or two. Happy, happy 5th Anniversary from #22.

This is not something that I have embraced and don't think I will. I did scrapbooking for year and something happened and I have not been back, I will one day. Beautiful photo it says a lot. Thanks for sharing.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda #8

I have to admit my ignorance - no idea what a pocket page is! But I am not a huge scrapbooker (although I seem to have acquired plenty of stash over the years!) Thank you for your earlier visit - can you imagine what it would be like if we could get everyone together at a crop - we'd need a bigger hall for sure! I am sure you were with us in spirit. Hope you've had a good WOYWW5, Hugs Cindy x #5

The book will be fab Amy - they will treasure it forever! Happy anniversary, Chris # 15 xx

I like making small art journals out of pocket pages but I'm not into anything too big as it seems to take too long to finish and I find myself leaving it to start something else. Happy WOYWW Anniversary, Angela x #41

I love being part of WOYWW...the friendship and sharing is just the best!

Happy 5th WOYWW!

The engagement book look lovely and I will be back to see the rest of the pages. I haven't done a scrapbook page for ages but I plan to get back to it when I get back into a rhythm at home. Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary to you, hugs from Annette #3

Dropping by to greet you a very happy 5th WOYWW anniversary! Those pocket pages do seem a lot easier than making whole scrapbook layouts. I only have pocket pages for my ATCs.
Blessings and hugs,

Yep, pocket page scrapping is crazy popular at the moment and I keep getting tempted but never seem to carry thru. Life gets in the way of scrapping sometimes! Love the engagement photo and the orange just makes the blue of her top POP! I'll stay tuned for sure :)
Got totally ambushed yesterday so late to the party and Blogger is being difficult this morning. I hope this shows up...

Happy 5 year WOYWW!
