WOYWW #324

Back to my workspace again this week! If you don't know what WOYWW is, please go HERE and find out, and perhaps join us!

I started making a set of 3 ATCs this week, following the theme of "Girlfriends". Since it is summer, friends on the beach seemed like a good idea!

I was all set to stamp "Bathing Beauties" on the ATC holder I was making, when "POOF!" one word went flying away!

Don't you hate when that happens! A full search, with flashlight, revealed nothing. This is the stamp set I was using, the word "beauties" was the one that disappeared. 

Well, what could I do, but leave everything and come back to it another day.
I went to take pictures today, and. . .

there is was. How I could have missed it a few days ago, I don't know, but I'm glad I found it! WOYWW saves the day!

I finished my journal page this week, here is the before and after:

And here is the "before" that I am working on now. I had the 2 frames sitting on my desk, I often pick up leftover things from my desk and incorporate them into my journal. I used a large Tim Holtz gears stencil, and the red is from a previously used stencil that I just popped inside a long time ago to use up the paint. 

Well, that's it for today, thanks for looking! Don't forget, I love to hear from you!

Hi Linda, love your pages! And the story of the lost stamp- isn't it silly how something eludes us, then suddenly pops up right in front of us? The ATC's are gorgeous, by the way. Have a great week, hugs. Shaz #5xxx

I LOVE the journal page! I can not tell you how often I have lost my glasses only to find them in the WOYWW photo. LOL

The bathing beauties are totally delightful - so glad you found your stamp, frustrating isn't it though, especially when you've looked somewhere and yet several days later there it is in the place you know you looked! I really love the journal pages, in fact I thought the 'before' picture was beautiful before I scrolled down and saw the 'after' picture and realised you had turned it in to 'stunning'! Thanks so much for visiting earlier, I hope you have a great week,

Love your stamps! If your desk is anything like mine, there's a worm hole that catches things falling off the desk and taking them who knows where. Naught is found even when I'm on my hands and knees. #59

Wow, I love your journal pages in the before and after shots! Lovely colours and patterns :-)
Isn't that maddening about that Lost Word? It's like when you search your handbag for the car keys and they're nowhere to be found, so you panic like mad. Then you go back in and look again and there they are, right in the place where they ought to be! How does that happen??!
Sorry this reply is so late, I've had visitors for three days!
Hugs, LLJ xxxx

Love your journal pages!
Oh so annoying when you lose a stamp. It's happened to all of us I'm sure. I'm so glad you found it again!
Have a great week,
Sorry I'm late in commenting,

That has happened to me numerous time! Very aggravating. Those Bathing Beauties ATC's are delightful. Your journal pages are so ful of details, so wish I had the patience to work that way in mine. Your's are truly inspiring. diane 44
