Mojo Monday #387

It's the first Monday of the month which means it is contest time over on the Mojo Monday blog!  Create a card using this sketch and you could be a lucky winner of some Verve Stamps!

I was in  need of a baby card and as fate would have it, last week I just picked up and adorable paper pad for baby boys by Echo Park at my LSS.  Used a few of the papers and then added Emery as my focal image.  A crimped panel and some twine added a touch of dimension, and then stamped and fussy cut a second head so I could pop it up and give Emery some dimension as well.

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.

So proud of my daughter as she has had yet another poem published in a book!  She entered a contest last year and just got word that her poem was selected as a winner. She has such a gift for writing.  In addition, my son has been approved to be an assistant ref for the HPL soccer league (high performance league), which is a huge honor and gets him a ton of exposure, experience and feedback for improvement and growth.  He has been noticed and labelled as a very good up and coming ref with a ton of potential, and if he keeps it up, he can go a long way.  The other day he actually mentioned he would love to be a World Cup ref.  Love when my  kids dream big!  Thanks for listening to my proud mama stories :)

Wishing you a blessed day!
