What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday again! Just follow this link to find out all about it! I haven't really been in my stamp room this week, due to Easter, but my daughter came for the weekend and we completed her Photo Album for her trip to Mexico - that was fun! I enjoyed doing it, she enjoyed watching! LOL! I made this album from an old Address Book I found at a garage sale a few years ago (2008 I think). It was Mexican themed, and as my DD and her boyfriend were going to Mexico, I made it into an empty trip scrapbook for them. Alas, their trip didn't turn out, but they vowed to go at some point. So they did, this past March!

I'm sharing just a few pages with you, wouldn't want you to get bored! Here is my desk this morning:

 The journal page is a page that one of my students that I tutor started. He's 12, and said he had never painted before, so I showed him how! He still has to finish it. He was awed by the giant word stamp you see on the side and wants to make his words with it.
 And here is my "put away" pile! I need a basket or something I can throw these stamps into, then take time once a week to put them all away!

Oh, and my prize came from Rhedd and Rosies (here!)! Last week I entered a challenge on their site and won! Crazy!! A nice surprise! Thank you!

Until next time, have a wonderful spring week!
