Mojo Monday #285

Mojo 285 photo Mojo285picA.jpg

It's Monday and time for an other Mojo Monday sketch. This week's sketch is brought to us by Julee and it may make you think a bit - at least it did me {grin}.  However, once I narrowed down which papers to use, I was on my way.

These wonderful MME papers were a fun pairing and I added kraft and sahara sand to the mix perfect.  Just had to use this wonderful sentiment again as it gives me something to hum all day long :)   Felt there was a little something missing so I added a flower and some foliage to the sentiment panel and use red ribbon for a pop of colour.

You can check out all the challenge details over on the Mojo Monday blog and also get 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.



We are into our first week of Spring Break today and the kids and I are starting off by doing the house "chores" I have planned - can you guess how much they like their mom right about now LOL!.  Once we get a few done, off to the recycling depot we go as their reward - they get to split the money we make there.  If I'm a betting mama, I'm sure we will end up at the dollar store right afterwards!

If posting is a bit scarce over the next two weeks, it's because my kids have worn me out LOL!   Thanks for popping by and I hope to be back before my Just Us Girls post Friday night.
