Mojo Monday #445

Mojo 445 B photo Mojo445pic2.jpg

This week it's your choice - round or square!!   In the past I have defaulted to round but this time round (no pun intended!), I opted to go with the square sketch.

I am still loving the Coffee Helps set.  My co-worker is a huge coffee lover and I always like to have a few in my stash to be able to use as thank yous or a surprise Starbuck's gift card for her.  Papers are from an old Stella and Rose MME set which I still love and the stitched circle is from the Springtime Stitches Die Set.   I paper pieced the latte cup and sponged some Antique Linen around the edges as I should have used cream coloured paper instead of white as the white was just too bright!

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.

We had a wonderful family outing Saturday night celebrating the 40th year of drama productions by our kids' high school.   This year their production was The Adams Family Musical.  Our daughter was a part of the makeup crew and has loved being a part of this amazing production.   Gomez was my favorite as he was absolutely brilliant, and his tango with Morticia was so fun to watch :)  The cast did a fabulous job, there were lots of laughs and all involved did an excellent job.

Was great to have the first drama teacher hired by the school there that evening too.  He was hired for the position while I was a student there myself (yes, I am feeling very old LOL), and produced top notch productions for over 30 years, and just recently retired.  A fun and serial night for me.

Oh, Marisa, I LOVE this card, and you've finally got me with this set - hehe! Our youngest son just LOVES coffee, and when he was here in March, he and his dad kept our Keurig a-hoppin'! He would love this sentiment, and I like to make a fun card for him from time to time -- this would be perfect. And I have lots of friends who love coffee too. Me, well, I'm a tea person, but that's rare. I drink lots of water. What a fun time you had with the family Saturday night, and it must have been a great production. I remember that show - great show. And, you're not old! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration. Your card is beautiful with this wonderful DP (that I still have some of myself). And I love how you've sponged the sentiment piece and added the buttons. Beautifully done, as always! Hugs, sweet friend!

Haha, love that sentiment, although I don't drink coffee... would be kinda cool to have a stamp that says "life happens alcohol helps" lol -- the font is so pretty though! TFS :)
