Sorry I've not posted for a few weeks. We've just got back from a fortnights holiday in Devon. If you're interested there are daily photos on my 365 blog.

While I was away, two new challenges went live on Mojo Holder. Due to holidays there were technical problems with posting of last Fridays challenge but hopefully they will be resolved soon and that challenge will then go live.

On 7th August Challenge #121 was to scraplift a layout by Micayla Metcalf. Here's Micayla's layout followed by mine.

I used a mixture of papers. Some BasicGrey, some Scenic Route and some Bazzill Cardstock. I'm still trying to use up some of the mountain of older papers.

14th August Challenge #122 used a layout by my all time favourite scrapper - Kelly Goree. Kelly is best known as a fabulous designer for Basic Grey. The layout was a bit of a challenge but I was pleased with how my layout came out. Here's Kelly's Layout followed by mine.

I used BasicGrey Eva papers and chip sticker shapes.

Mojo Challenge #120

This week the Mojo Holder design team were fortunate enough to take its inspiration from renowned scrapbooker Jennifer McGuire. Jennifer is a Garden Girl at Two Peas in a Bucket and is also a member of the Hero Arts design team.

Here's Jennifer's layout, the sketch that Sarah produced, followed as usual by my layout.

Although its mid summer, I decided to create a snowy layout. LOL. I used a mixture of papers from Heidi Grace, Love Elsie and there was even a tiny bit of BasicGrey (well, there would have to be!!!). The snowflakes were from a packet of 'Swell Noel Layered Glittered Accents' by K & Co. I have used these on a couple of layouts before and they seem to go on, and on, and on - like the Magic Porridge Pot, the packet is never empty!
