Mojo Monday 120 Challenge Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

It's been a few weeks since I've been able to participate in my favorite challenge, Mojo Monday.  So I was really happy to be working on this card in my studio.

I pulled out one of my all-time favorite Close To My Heart paper packets, "Silhouette".  I hope this collection never retires!  Add to that my favorite Spellbinder's dies and my favorite Verve stamps, and you can't go wrong!  Right???

So here's my sketch interpretation.  I was very literal this time, staying as close to the sketch dimensions as possible.  Since I used a few different patterned papers, I kept the embellishments to a minimum.  You can click on the image to enlarge it.

Yesterday was a wonderful cropping day with friends!  We had a Flamingo Gals group meeting in the morning, then I headed over to play paper dolls (ha) with a gaggle of gals close by in Melbourne Village.  It was so enjoyable - like I imagine quilting bees used to be - women with a common bond laughing, creating, telling stories about our kids....sharing goodies (both craftable and edible).....what joy!  I headed home early to cuddle with my has been C-O-L-D here in sunny Florida!  But it's better than the heat, so we'll take it!

I'd like to challenge you this week to pull out some of your favorites...maybe some things you have been 'saving' (like this Silhouette paper collection - ha).  Look at them with a different eye and nestle them with some of your other favorites that might no be intended to 'go' together.  Pull items from different companies and let them break bread together!  Then share your creations with your blogging buddies.

Keep warm,

beautiful, just like you my friend. I am going right now to my scrap room and create something, well Maybe. I'd rather just crawl under the covers. We are keeping the heat so LOW that I don't want to do anything.

This is the prettiest card I've seen all weekend. Absolutely gorgeous!! And I'm with you on the Silhouette papers. They are the best!!

Still cold down there? We're experiencing a heatwave up north. It was 20 degrees today!! LOL.

Hope your week is great, friend!
