Mojoholder Challenge #103

I had a fabulous birthday, yesterday & did absolutely nothing!! And today, I did the same again. Ireally needed some time off work. I started almost 8 months ago I can't believe it. So this weekend is all about chilling out & trying to shake off this cold that started hitting me on Wednesday night. I don't think I have slept right for a week & I am rather narky.

Right it is DT time again & on Mojoholder you will find a sketch for this weeks great page by Tammy Tutterow. I loved it instantly but am down to the dregs of ink in the printer so came up with another solution.

I have gone for new this week as I promised myself that when I used up some old I was allowed the new stuff out the box :0) I got this incredible pack for Xmas.


Cardstock, Bazzill Robin's Egg.

Paper; Crate Prudence Collection, Discretion, Consideration & a small piece of Virtue for the journalling.
Glitter Border & Glitter Shapes, Crate Prudence.

Pink Paislee Pop Fashion Icons, butterfly & small title "My favourite".

Title "Stamps", Quickutz moxie alphabet font.

Stamps all by Craft Individuals.

Crikey Ladies! It's that time of the week again, where on earth did those few days go! Well it's the weekend & time to create so pop on over the mojoholder blog & check out this week's page by a fab scrapper & photographer, Maria Kress. The bright colours are so funky. I just couldn't get the star to work for me so I went with a bracket instead and the other DT girls also picked some different shapes. That's what I love about reveal night, seeing all the different variations on the same design.

Bit of a mix of old & new again this week.

Paper is Pink Paislee Office Lingo- bottom line, fast track & the orange bracket shape.
Title made up of American Crafts- Thickers Fabric Alphas Dolce. October Afternoon- Night Light Newsroom and Making Memories Tiny Alphas Brown Ledger.

Mojoholder #101

Well it's that time of the week again. I honestly don't know where the time goes. Or maybe that is a lie. I am spending rather a lot of time crawling into bed by 8.30pm during the week as I get more & more ready for a break. In a year I have only had 12 days off & I can't wait now that my 6 months (well it's 7 months now) in my new job is completed. Well enough of me, lets get on with the proceedings. This is my page for this week's DT page on the Mojoholder blog. Do pop over to check out all the rest. We are lifting the fabulous Jill Godon this week & I love the simplicity of this page.

My page is made up of old stash again this week. Materials list;

Bazzill Avalanche cardstock. Paper, Basic Grey, Urban Couture;Silk & Cashmere. Scarlet's Letter;Pearl. Ribbon, free (found on a gift box in my Xmas stocking).
