Mojo Monday #429

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to the first Mojo Monday sketch of 2016!

Trusting you all had a wonderful Christmas and are ready to enjoy all the new year has to bring.  We some wonderful family time and our daughter gave us an amazing photo book for Christmas.  Flipping through the pages brought back so many wonderful memories.  Hard to believe so much time has passed!

Not only is this the first Mojo Monday sketch of 2016, but it is also the first Monday of the month which means it is contest week!!  A fabulous way to start out 2016 :)

I pulled out a piece of this wonderful Hugs and Kisses paper by American Crafts.  It is bold and makes such a statement.  Figured it was a great jump into 2016.  The sentiment is one of my all time favorites from Verve and is from the Kind Words set.  Added five extra hearts, my accessory of choice at this time of year - well, any time of year really {grin} - an da touch of bling and pearls to gussy it up a bit.

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.

Look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery, and since I love new beginnings, I also look forward to writing my 366 day book on 2016.  Best wishes for a fabulous year everyone!!
