Mojo Monday #381

Mojo 381 photo Mojo381pic.jpg

So many wonderful options and ideas with that big old circle that I may just have to use this sketch again to complete a few of them LOL!

Used some Something Wonderful papers by Teresa Collins and paired it with this fabulous Beautiful Plain Jane.  Love the bold font and on point message this sentiment brings.  Like the saying goes: "There is only one of you, and you are the best at being you, so be yourself with a vengeance".  That doesn't mean there isn't room for self improvement and growth as you stagnate without those.  However, being true to who you are and were created to be is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and others. 

All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also 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.


Still doing a happy dance after the Seahawks had an amazing comeback victory over the Packers (sorry Packer fans....).  I thought it was game over after the first half, got my hopes up a bit in the second and then with time running out and five minutes to go, I figured it was a done deal. But no!! They had a ton of heart and pulled off the impossible by getting the lead.  Packers tied the game and sent it into overtime, but Seattle managed get down the field on their first possession in OT and scored a touchdown to win!  On to the Superbowl they go - whoo hoo!!

Beautiful mix of papers, Marisa! And you're right: there is only one 'you', wonderfully made. :)

I don't follow football, but I heard some folks in the office talking about the games here this morning.

What's best about your card is that it is so bright and eye-catching that it makes you feel good just looking at it. Beautiful job!

We listened to this riveting game in the car on our way back from Edmonton to Canmore last weekend; talk about hold-your-breath playing! I'll be cheering for them come Super Bowl! You've certainly given this lovely sentiment star-billing on your beautiful card! Love it immensely!
