Winnings and WOYWW #153

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday

I attended the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention a few weeks ago, and took 7 classses over the two days I was there.  I had a great time learning new techniques and checking out  all the great merchandise the vendors had to offer.  An instructor in one of the cardmaking classes I attended, sponsored by Simply Scrapbooking,  had a little contest at the end of class.  She told us to use our leftover die cut pieces to make an original card design.  She was giving away 2 packages of the new Twinking H2O colors, and a bottle of Radiant Rain Shimmer mist.  If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I use those Twinks on almost every card I make, and I did not have those sets.  So I kicked into high gear and knocked out the best design I could in the few minutes she gave us, and she selected my card!  This picture shows the 2 packs of colors.  Can't wait to use them!   Sorry for the reflection on the photo, took this in the evening with my ott light, and couldn't get an angle without glare.

Here's the rest of my desk with some cards I am finishing up for Graduations, and some necklaces that I am making to sell at a few local craft stores.

I have not had the chance to play along with Julia and the gang over at the Stamping Ground in the last few weeks, so I am excited to be able to be a part of all the fun today.  Be sure to check it out, and play along.

Thanks for stopping by,  I love to read your comments, and would love some new followers.  I am trying to get up to 50 by the end of May.
