"Mojo "challenge..

   So, I've been in a LAYOUT slump since before Halloween. It seems like every time I turn around I NEED to make cards. So, I pull out sketches and papers and photos for a LO and NO MOJO!!! Either I don't like the paper or I don't like the sketch or.. it goes on and on. So... I was telling a friend about my mojo problem and she emailed me a sketch and a challenge. I emailed her directly back.. "uuumm... hello... I have no mojo and how am I gonna do this with no mojo".. Well.. SHE had faith in me and pushed me further with a TIME LIMIT!! Well, still not so sure about the sketch, I dug thru papers and printed photos. Long story short... I got the sketch done in 24 hours!! Yep.. almost 2 whole days before my deadline. One of my "had to do's" was make at least one of my own flowers. I made 4 of them!!! Woot Woot!! So, thanks LORI for being such a GREAT friend and pushing me. :)  So.. here are a few pics. There are alot more on my Face Book.

  Yes, this is my daughter. I took these photos October 2010. She is blooming into such a beautiful young lady. She LOVES this LO. I may surprise her with it framed and she can have on her wall. What teenage doesn't look at themselves right? LOL  .  I made 4 of the flowers.. on the bottom.. the one with the blue brad, the one on the right ( big one), the one above the bog one, and the other one with a blue brad. Here are a couple close ups..
  Thanks for looking. Hope you like it as much as I'm starting to. All papers are CTMH, inks CTMH and Tim Holtz, Flowers Prima, Brads CTMH, metal Making Memories, Starburst Sprays from Lindystampgang.com, Smooch. I used alot of different product so if you want to know about a certain element in this LO, please just ask. ;)  Thanks for looking.
