Mojo Thursday

Mojo Holder challenges have now moved to Thursday evenings so last weeks challenge, to scraplift a LO by Linda Albrecht went live a day earlier than usual. Linda Albrecht is a Designer for Pink Paislee, Melissa Francis and Art Warehouse and the LO the team lifted was gorgeous. I used a photo of Lara in the snow and threw loads of lace and ribbon onto the LO to create a really pink, feminine LO.

Linda has some stunning creations on her blog . Pop along and have a look - you will be amazed at how talented she is.

As I said before Mojo Holder challenges will now be on Thursdays. I've already completed my LO for this Thursday and all I can say at this stage is that it took me way out of my comfort zone. Have a look at Mojo Holder on Thursday evening when all will be revealed.

Oh my word ........ 2 posts in less than a week!!! Well, I've got a few minutes spare this afternoon so thought I'd update the blog now rather than in a months time as is the norm. LOL Mind you, I don't actually have much to update. LOL.

A new challenge on Mojo Holder went live on Friday. We scrap lifted the fantastic Ronda Palazzari. Ronda's LO was fabulous but oh boy did I struggle to come up with a LO! I think the rest of the team struggled with this one too. The majority of us LOVED Ronda's LO when we saw it and really wanted to lift it but actually putting our own spin on it was way hard. Pop over to Mojo Holder to see the team's efforts and here (as always) is Rondas and mine.

Apart from my Mojo LO I've not managed any other scrapbooking but hey........ the weeks still young.

Something very strange has happened this week! The sun has shone! Summer in the UK this year seemed to last just one week - well we only had one week of real summer weather. The rest of the time the weather was, to put it bluntly .... awful. Wet and windy! But this week the sun has honoured us with it's presence and it is so welcome. Wonder how long it will last.

Since I last blogged three more weekly challenges have been posted on Mojo Holder with another due tonight. And tonights is a cracker - a real challenge though so please go and have a look.

On August 29th we scraplifted a layout by Rita Weiss. Rita is a designer for Prima and Jenni Bowlin. I used a cute photo of Lara in the garden. She gave me such a cheeky grin that day - I had to scrap it.

September 5th (which just happened to be Wayne & my 21st Wedding Anniversary) was a scrap lift of a layout by Kelly Purkey. Kelly is a designer for American Crafts, Fiskars, as well as part of the 2008 Creating Keepsake dream team and a Two Peas Garden Girl. I scrapped a rare photo of Christopher.

And, last week September 12th we lifted Lea Lawson. Lea is a previous Creating Keepsakes Hall of Famer who has been published numerous times. I love the title of Lea's blog - Leascupcakesandsunshine - cute. I used photos of Lara on the beach at Northam Burrows, North Devon.

I have also created three more layouts - just for fun. They are all scrap lifts. The first two were lifts from my favourite ever scrapper, Kelly Goree and the third from Nic Howard.
