What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 461

Not a lot. Well, stacks of paper that herald a month end in business terms rather than in fun terms, which makes it a view not worth sharing, frankly. Ergh. Still, I hope it'll all be over by lunchtime. So to make it worthwhile, today's a twofer day!
Some good news; I finished the LO that was on my desk last week.
With the aid of a mini crème egg (bottom right), or two. You know how sugar excites the mojo! We have a family birthday today, which necessitates a lunch time outing which will be a lovely treat. Trouble is, proper food at lunchtime makes me want to sleep it off! Make my afternoon entertaining and wakeful then will you? Show and tell about your desks. As always, post on your blog with WOYWW as a title and link here. You're so co-operative.

ooh you caught me out posting early! I love that layout, and your writing is so neat!! The pile of business paperwork is not so fun.... enjoy today - I totally agree about eating 'big' food at lunchtime!

Morning Julia. Great page!! Have a good day, and enjoy that lunch outing despite probably feeling delightfully sleepy afterwards:-)
Take care. God bless.
Margaret #1 - how on earth did I manage that???

"Today I am visiting Blogs, Today I am visiting Blogs, Today I am visiting Blogs" - there you are Julia, your Mantra for this afternoon's wakey wakey time. Keep repeating and you will not fall asleep. now just what you mean but I think at my age I can (and do) fall asleep in the afternoon anyhow, meal or not.
Lovely page I do like the lettering on it and the colours of the bunting are perfect against that neutral grey background. Love how my favourite Easter eggs, or anytime eggs, have kept you going mojo-wise.
Hugs, Neet 3 xx
ps enjoy your meal out x

Gorgeous Page love the bunting in layers. I finally did some scrapping, but I guess you know that from facebook LOL. Love my alphabet and rearranged ALL my dies. I had to add my new alphabet to my existing alphabet album so moved ALL my Quickutz shapes to the album you sent me and they fit just dandy. Desperately trying to find a reason to use my 4 new shapes on pages, it will happen.... BJ#7

I do love a bit of bunting and that looks lovely on your page, Julia! Simple but very effective - and clever how you made the photo part of it. Looks like you were up early today! Just getting light here. Enjoy your day! xx zsuzsa #8

okienurse said...

great looking page you made. Hope that business doesn't keep you too long. Seems like doing the taxes takes an horribly long time for me. Have fun at your luncheon! Vickie #8

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Happy WOYWW. Love the LO - great colours. I love the eggs even more, which reminds me there is a Cadburys Cream Egg in the fridge which I put there last week. That will be enjoyed later whilst watching some tv. Hope you had a good nap after your lunch. Ali x #19

Shaz Brooks said...

Hope you enjoy your meal- I so know what you mean about wanting a nap after a midday meal! And Hubby has just come back from posting a parcel with some Sausage & Egg McMuffins, so I'm off to eat, lol. Layout came together beautifully! Hugs, Shaz XxX

Clemencia R said...

Oh my goodness, I love the layout, I miss scrapbooking :) every time I try I leave it unfinished :/ too much in my hands on a daily basis, but I love yours plus your desk looks so organized also :)

Christine said...

No link today, had to come searching for you .... think my internet is on the blink again. Seems whichever provider we have cuts down on our internet usage after the first twelve months!!!
The end of the month seems to come round so quickly but at least the LO is finished.
Hope your skies are sunnier than ours
Have a good week

Heather Marshall said...

Hi Julia, I really like the bunting on the layout. Might borrow that idea if you don't mind! I hope you have a lovely lunch, and if you feel like a nap after then go for it - but wait till you get home first lol. Have a lovely week, Heather x #13

Twiglet said...

Lovely LO Julia and I really could eat that chocolate egg - I never indulged at all over Easter! xx Jo

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Great LO and tempting chocolate...I drop some in my coffee every once in a while. Enjoy your lunch out, hoping by tomorrow our roads are cleared, here hot soup sounds good. The one thing we have going here is time change has made it light up until 8 pm.

Angie said...

Adorable layout. I never was able to master actually paper layouts, but the digital ones I do enjoy. I just never seem to spend enough time working on them. Hmm.. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, hope your lunchtime break compensated for that heap of paperwork you've just had to wade through. The completed layout is lovely - the paper, embellishments, etc., compliment the photograph perfectly - and that looks like an idyllic beach too. I very successfully avoided chocolate eggs this year - I just put the word around that I wanted none and that's what I got - none! Will try same again at Christmas. You're not alone at needing a nap after a proper lunch but I'm guessing my post won't do much to keep you awake :) Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #25

Lindart said...

I do love how your page turned out! Have a great week! Lindart #30

Stacy Sheldon said...

Hi Julia, I love how you tucked the photo into the bunting on the page :) and hopefully it is a totally nap worth luncheon.

Nikki C said...

Such a lovely layout Julia. Look at how tidy your space is too. That is one chocolate i always give away to sweet for me or its the goo inside that does it lol yuck !!! Late joining in this week feel asleep early. Have a wonderful day hugs Nikki

April Story said...

Great layout. Sorry there was business instead of fun. Being an adult is so hard! ;-)

Debbie Rock said...

Didya fall off your chair? Didya? Didya? Fear not for ‘‘tis me & not an imposter! Much love to you my darling. Xxx

Kelly said...

Lovely layout, Miss Julia! Naps are a given most days for me. I have a different desk this week, but I fear not cheery to keep you awake. - just life. Creative Blessings! Kelly #34

Suzanne Alexis said...

Your layout is really cute! Most of my pages include multiple photos, and I'm trying to get more creative with the layouts. I'll have to remember the bunting for future use. Enjoy your lunch and have a good week!

Happy WOYWW, I love cream eggs xx Jan (36)

StampinCarol said...

I have never been in to the cream eggs, they have no appeal to me but Milk Duds, Caramel M&Ms... oh my! Great layout! Love the banner on it and such a cool photo! Thanks for stopping by, I just got home from seeing Angie and am catching up!

Angela Radford said...

Julia, when do we need to get the ATCs finished for this year? I think I must have missed the date.

Carmen Wing said...

I really love how you made the flags line up with the horizon in the photo I really had to look a couple of times as it makes the photo look really 3D. Really clever effect.

Apparently I have to learn all that end of year stuff... am barely in triple digits so should be a doddle. (She says, hopefully.)

Hope your lunch was lovely - glad I'm not the only one who has to sleep them off.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

WOW! I thought I was at the wrong desk (grin)!!! You know me and clean desks. I loved this view. I even love your scrapbook page.

Ohhh Snap said...

Love your layout! I'm trying 100 days of scrapping lol. We'll see how it goes. I was pining for a nap today, but no such luck. Hope you had a fabulous lunch with proper amounts of birthday cheer : D.

craftyani said...

Enjoy your lunch don't think it is the food that makes you sleepy but the odd glass of wine or two. Ani#4

Sharon Madson said...

I am very late! Sorry, Julia! I can't wait to get my craft room back together again after moving. I love scrap booking, and your page is lovely!

Hi Julia! Thanks for popping over to my blog earlier, I am finding Sunday afternoons a good time for a cuppa and trip around the desk world! End of year - Ewww, still dealing with our end of tax season here! Boo, I would rather be getting inky!! Have a great week, Ginny #33
