Mojo Monday 92 and a new Lockhart Stamp Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

It's HOT! We had a record high Monday of 99. I have not checked on the high for yesterday or today.....why get depressed? tee hee
I'm now officially hooked on Julee's Mojo Monday sketch challenges. I just love her style! Here's my take on this week's challenge. Don't you just love the little Adirondack chair? I have been dying to use this Lockhart stamp since I first got it from Susana 's store a few weeks ago. I think it goes great with this Bella paper, don't you? I also used my first Verve stamp - the sentiment from Black Tie Birdies. Yippee!!!
And woohoooo....notice the fluffy flowers? They are made with Flower Soft!!!! I was so excited to get this stuff (also from Susana ;-) is totally awesome!!!!! Click on the pic to see it close up. Of course I could not just buy the lavender. My favorite combo of flower colors is pink, lavender and yellow, so that's what I bought!!!! I think I also bought red to experiment with poinsettias for the holidays....hmmm. Anyway, you get a huge jar that will last close to forever!!!
Paper: CTMH Bella
Ink: CTMH Smokey Plum, New England Ivy
Stamps: Karen Lockhart Adirondack Chair, Verve Black Tie Birdies
Other: CTMH Autumn Flowers, Connections Club Charm, Blending Pen, Scallop Scissors, Flower Soft, Foam Squares
What did you do today? I had one of those odd days at work where you do a bunch of little things half-way without accomplishing a whole lot of anything. Hopefully I can wrap all those things up tomorrow.
Sweet dreams,

Ooh, I love this one, too. That's such a fun image, and your coloring is great. LOVE the Flower Soft. It really adds that special touch. TFS.

My day at work was much like yours. I worked on a lot of stuff but couldn't seem to finish anything. We'll make up for it tomorrow!
