Mojo Monday #254


This week's sketch was designed by Carol Burrage and it was a wonderful sketch to work with.

With the heat wave we have been having lately, I opted to go with a fall theme just to feel a bit cooler LOL!  Needless to say, when I create a fall card there is a very good chance some leaves will appear, and this time was no exception - grin :)  Just a little foretaste of several (many...wink, wink) of my September and October posts.


I hope you can play along with us this week!  Simply visit the Mojo Monday blog for all the details and a chance to view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples!  Should you wish more details on their cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.


Kids and I are back from our week of camping with our friends and we had a fabulous time!  Many fun times together and memories made :)  Thankfully the site was by a lake as it was smoking hot there for quite a few days and we basically lived in the lake LOL!  My swimming marathon continues LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit of your day with me!

Beautiful, Marisa...love the orange ribbon. That leaf die looks perfect. It has really felt like Fall here this weekend, especially Sat. morning and this morning. The humidity was gone and there was a cool breeze blowing when I went outside...what a shock.
