Mojoholder's 100th Challenge

This week sees the 100th lift on Mojoholder's and I am very thrilled to be part of the design team and share this event. We have then pleasure of lifting a gorgeous page by Robyn Weatherspoon. Go see the mojoholder blog for the design team pages. Mine is below. Another 6" Jenny Bowlin calendar page for my SC project.

Materials; All items in my February 2009 SC kit, Fortune Cookie.

Patterned paper Making Memories Lace Love Notes. Bazzill Avalanche card scalloped with a corner rounder & hole punched using my Big Bite.

Title; Karen Russell Narratives Creative Imaginations Rub Ons.

Embellishments; Making Memories Love Notes Title Alphas & Stickers. Maya Road chipboard flower.

The photo is of my dear sister, Tracy & Nigel my brother in law(who sadly passed away) taken on their Wedding Day, 26th July 1997.
Something really bizzare happened to this post as I had amended bits to upload but as I went to select the time I wanted it to automatically upload my computer shut down on me!!! So it appear like I originally uploaded hours before mojo went live!

May I first of all thank you for your kind words regarding the passing of my friend, Kitchner Hoareau. The funeral is early on Monday morning.

I really enjoyed the Mojoholder DT lift this week of a fabulous page by Elizabeth Carney. I hope it urges you to play along too. I decided on a mix of old & new scrap stash this week. See below for a materials list. I wish the picture of this page had come out better.

These two people, Colette and Kitchner Hoareau, have been my very close friends for 15 years. They have been more like family to me and I was treated as one of them. We have shared many happy times together and I am now very sad to say that Kitchner passed away yesterday. My heart is with Colette and all her family.

Mojoholder Challenge #98

Well I'm back after my one week craft break & we have another fabulous layout & sketch for you all to play with. Pop on over to the Mojoholder blog to see the rest of the DT versions of this page by Tone Jenson.

I will be making a series of 6" pages, for a small project I have up my sleeve. Each page is going to be made on the reverse of A 6" Jenny Bowlin 2009 calendar I got in my Christmas SC Kit. Each page will be made using the corresponding months kit from SC. Watch out for more as they appear, once a month of course. All items from the Janaury Bibliography kit with the exception of the stamps that spell the word window.

Due to exhaustion & illness, I bowed out of this week's Design Team piece. The team did a splendid job so pop on over to Mojoholder Blog & check out the layout & a sketch.I spent the whole of last weekend in bed. Work is really hard right now. The roadworks are such a pain in the rear. We are late each morning, but worse even later home. 10 hour days feel more like 12 & I have no energy left for anything. The icy roads really haven't helped the situation. I hope this weekend to complete my DT piece for next weeks reveal, but right now my warm bed beckons. At least I have managed to do plenty of reading which is my second favourite hobby!
