Mojo Monday #302

Mojo 302 photo Mojo302picA.jpg

This week's sketch is a wonderful, basic layout, which means you can keep it simple or dress it up - which ever your heart desires.  Think mine ended up being between those two options LOL!

I don't think I have ever used plaid on a card before so this was a first for me.  I am not a plaid lover at  heart, but this card is definitely growing on me so I may be converted yet wink, wink.

Used up a few scraps from my discard container and added a few touches of pearls and bling to dress it up a bit.

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 the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.




Think I have recovered from VBS enough to be ready and willing for swimming lessons.  It's always great to swim laps while the kids are in their lessons and then hang out in the pool having fun with them afterwards.  I truly treasure these times as I know they will soon be a thing of the past.

Have a fabulous week and I look forward to seeing your creations!

I may have to play in this one as I love, love, love this sketch! I love your card too - a zillion fun details and super use of color as always. I have come to think of you every Monday morning when I sit down with my coffee cup - I say to myself, "I wonder what Marisa has made for Mojo Monday." Seriously! Hugz - have a great day my friend.
