Mojo Monday #257

2012 Faves

It's the first Monday of the month so that means it is challenge week over at the Mojo Monday blog!   There will be one winner for every 50 entries and if you are selected as one of the winners, you will get a Verve set of your choice!  With the recent anniversary release, there are lots of amazing new sets to chose from too!!  Worth playing for in my books!  It is also a special week because Carol Burrage is back from her short break and will once again be creating her fabulous Mojo Maker samples for you to enjoy.  Welcome back Carole!

I loved the sketch, skewed panel and all.  Yes, you read right LOL!!  At this rate, I may have to find a new nemisis, wink, wink!  There is a teeny bit of  creative straying from the sketch (can you find it) but I think my "boss" will let it slide.  If not, I may have to serve a skewed panel sketch detention {grin}.

Would love to have you play along with us this week!  Just pop over to 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.
