Mojo Monday #307

Mojo 307 photo Mojo307picA.jpg

Julee has created a very fun sketch to work with this week.  So many unique elements that all balance wonderfully.  She is definitely a master sketch artist! 

Fun was the name of the game for this card, so I pulled out some bright, polka dotted paper and Verve's new to me Up Up And Away set.  I paper pieced the balloon, added a cloud some Swiss Dots in the background and the "smile" sentiment from Circular Sayings as it just fit :)

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.


Just a reminder that Verve has their anniversary sale going on this month and there are lots of great deals to be had!   


The kids and I had a great time camping in Summerland in the Okanagan this past week.  Great weather, great company, lots of swimming and pier jumping in Okanagan Lake and a wonderful time to spend with dear, dear friends.  We have been blessed to have been invited for the fourth summer in a row to join them for a week of camping.  I think it is the highlight of the summer for the kids each year and it allows us to get all caught up with each other and create great memories.  Nothing better than time spent with good friends!! 

Have a fabulous day everyone!
