Mojo Monday #289

Mojo289 Verve photo Mojo289picB.jpg

Welcome back to another Mojo Monday sketch.  This week's sketch is brought to us by Julee, and there is a fun diagonal panel to work with.

Pulled two papers from The Sweetest Thing Recollections pack from Michael's and went to work.  I added just a touch of colour to the cream leaves by using third generation stamping with Sahara Sand and added a button to the ribbon banner for a little something.

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 had a busy, but very good weekend.  On Friday I go to actually meet my cyber friend, Sue Kohler, from Australia!  We did a bit of shopping at Michael's and then enjoyed a fabulous lunch together.  I am now fully versed in speaking Australian LOL!  Saturday was my son's first spring soccer game, and Saturday night was spent celebrating a friend's birthday.  Sunday, I taught my Sunday School Class, and Sunday afternoon I took a nap to recover from all the weekend activities -- I'm getting old!  Hope your weekend was a good one too.

Thanks for popping by today!

This is just beautiful, Marisa! Love those layered die cuts. And I totally giggled about now being able to speak Australian! I love listening to accents, but I'm terrible at deciphering them!
