Mojo Monday

I don't think there are too many people that look forward to Monday's EXCEPT when Monday is a holiday! Really, I think Monday's are the hardest day of my week EXCEPT when Monday is a holiday! I even slept in until 9:00 a.m. this morning and enjoyed every minute of sleep! So today, I participated in what is called "Mojo Monday". Each Monday, a design sketch is published and you make projects according to the design sketch. To the right is the picture of today's Mojo Monday design sketch. You can visit this website yourself by going to mojomonday.blogspot.com. I urge you to select a design sketch and see what you can come up with. I tend to have problems sometimes coming up with layouts for my cards. I get in a rut - that comfort zone when I find something that works. So, this helped me step out of the box a little bit and I had a blast coming up with some projects.

Since I actually had some time to play on the Memorial Holiday, I made three different cards incorporating this Mojo Monday layout. You know, Kiwi Kiss is really becoming one of my favorite colors (not as favorite as Baja Breeze tho). I absolutely love this Kiwi Kiss card!
