Scrappy Mojo

Scrappy mojo is a fickle friend, but when it's around, I've learned to run with it because it may not last long! These are a couple of my latest layouts created from challenges...

First up is a sketch challenge from Studio Calico. Here is the sketch

and here is my take...

I used a Studio Calico stamp set and went crazy with ink pads! I also stamped on photos and cut little strips of the pics to stick inside my stamped frames. I love the way this turned out and I would have never dreamed this up if I had not see the sketch!

Next up is a challenge from Norma Kennedy @ For the Luv of Art. The challenge was to make a 8 1/2 x 11 layout, use a paper ruffle, and use yellow for a pop of color. I took a strip of paper and use a Fiskars punch along the edge, I then scored and folded the paper and ran it through my sewing machine. Lots of steps, but so worth the effort.

The downside to hanging out with Scrappy Mojo is that everything else gets put on hold; so I'd better send her away for a little bit so that I can get caught up on other things like dinner, laundry, my son's Open House this evening... you get the idea!

Thanks for stopping by; be on the lookout for our little friend! ;)
