A late sketch!


Remember how I said I had been struggling with my lack of mojo?? Oh yeah...it hit me HARD by the end of last week. I had the latest Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge in my hands for days....and literally stared at it....for hours. Uggh. I just had to step away from everything. My poor Google Reader was also neglected...something like 300+ unread blog posts. (Sorry to all of you who I haven't stopped by to visit...I promise to leave some comments this week!) Anyway, I think it did me some good! I set aside some time to create this afternoon. There are sooo many items I have purchased that, of course, I just HAD to have, that hadn't seen the light outside of their original package!

So here goes...my entry into that pool of Mojo I've been so desperate to find! Here's the sketch we got to work with for this week.


I just couldn't go without an attempt at this awesome sketch! I just love all the elements to it.


I used just a hodge podge of everything in my stash on this one. Everything neglected, but loved. Everything that has been totally and completely...hoarded. lol Tell me you hoard things too. Tell me I'm not the only one!

The gorgeous patterned paper is from a Life's Portrait Webster's Pages Petite paper pack. I have Vintage Sparklers to go with this....I'm working on un-hoarding those and actually using them. Baby steps people...give me time! :) The little calendar stamp is one from Maya Road that I ordered from 2peas a while back. My sentiment comes from the Ali Edward's set I used previously, Loving Words. The crochet with bling is a new line from Jolee's Boutique that I snagged over at Archiver's on one of my weekly trips there, lol. And finally, the flower is a Prima. Boy do I HOARD those Primas!

And hey, you are going to WANT to participate in this week's sketch challenge guys!! This week, a random participant will win a free stamp set from Taylored Expressions! You have until 8 AM PST July 2nd to submit your card, so be sure and play!! Especially since there will be a new release coming up very soon!! :)

Ok, I think I'm going to try another card just to keep the mojo a'flowin. Hope you are having a great weekend (or week depending on where you are!)

Thanks so much for your visit and sweet comments. :)
