WOYWW #167 - New Bike

Oh dear our internet connection is still giving us problems and it has been over 4 weeks since we raised it with our ISP and BT. So when I saw it was working early this morning I hopped out of bed to do my WOYWW post before the day got going and things became unmanagable again. Then I realised it was only Tuesday! Oh well better make hay whilst the sun shines, so here goes.

Here's my desk and I am actually doing some scrapping! It's of my husband and his beloved new bike - he thinks he is Bradley Wiggins! Nothing is stuck down yet so I am open to suggestions. I managed to add a white painted boarder using a paint dabber. I think I am much safer with paint dabbers than plain paint and a brush!

So that is me for the "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday"  mega blog hop courtasy of Julia over at The Stamping Ground. Happy WOYWW everyone.

Hi honey, thought u had been quiet and had guessed it was probably your internet being naughty again, how frustrating after they had said it was fixed!!
I love your layout and wouldn't change a thing, looks like DH enjoying his new bike.
Ha ha, wouldn't dare show my desk, I am soooooo untidy with it!! Anyhoo, worse than ever today as Millie has taken it over to do a scrapbook kit.
Big hugs x x x x

Ah.... great layout, but I think I know what you're asking and why. Are you feeling a little like it's not quite sitting right? Me, I'm a symmetry nut usually, so I'd probably just jig the left hand page a little so it mirrors the right a little more. Ergo, move one of the circles so its on the pic of DH stood with his bike, and put the remaining circle with the picture of the bike. The layout wouldn't need to be an exact mirror immage of right hand page, but you may find that gives you more....something....LOL. Or maybe put in a bigger picture of the bike itself than the one you've got?

Anyway - thanks for stopping by!!! I don't always do double layouts, it just so happens that those are what I'm showing!

Hi BJ, you really have been having a nightmare with the computer! Hope it gets resolved soon. I really like your LO and there is no harm in your hubby aiming as high as Bradley and I love his colourful gear too. A x

Four weeks is a long time to go with a lousy internet connection. My hubby's head would have exploded a long time ago. The layout looks great. I really like the addition of the gears and sprockets all over the page.

Elizabeth said...

Hi BJ, I keep saying this but I do hope your ISP problems are sorted out for you soon, if only that you don't have to jump out of bed at some ungodly hour to post. Like the white paint around the edges of your layout - it makes an effective frame. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Elizabeth x #54

Julia Dunnit said...

How funny, I have the same 'wrong day'' moments, believe me, specially when we're away and Wednesday is approaching!! Lack of ISP is so frustrating, I feel for you, I really do! Loving the bike LO..those cogs and the white edging is inspired.

Tertia said...

What a lovely LO. I would not change a thing. You are early and me? I am exceptionally late this week, sorry about that.
Happy very belated WOYWW!

Looks like a fabulous LO. That's too bad about your internet being so spotty! I don't know how I could cope with that...seriously, when thinking about moving, internet availability and speeds are one of my main concerns! But I am a full-time online student so internet availability and reliability are just mandatory for this household. :) Anyways, look at that desk of yours! You have a nice big area clear in the center for crafting, well done. :)
