Mojo Monday #405

It's the first Monday of the month and that means it is Mojo Monday contest week!  Submit your card using this week's sketch and the more people who enter the greater your chances of winning some Verve.

In a continued attempt to work my way through my existing (sometimes hoarded) paper supply before buying more, I pulled out some old MME Lime Twist papers.   Added a notebook page for my sentiment panel with the Smile Plain Jane and had to use this fabulous butterfly from Happy Place.  

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.

Our unusually hot weather continues to allow us to sympathize with how meat must feel on a BBQ!  Not fun.  Needless to say, it has been a joy to go to work because of the AC and I was teasing my boss that our family may have a sleep over at the clinic this weekend.

Thankfully we were able to keep cool one day last week by spending it at the Cultus Lake Water Slides with our kids and some of their friends.  Five teenagers and two adults made for a very fun day.  We stayed for six and a half hours, and since it wasn't overly busy got a lot of rides in.  Grinning from ear to ear again this year as this mama once again holds the title of last person standing at the end of the day {grin}.   Added bonus:  climbing up 70 - 140 steps per ride gave us all a great workout :)
