Mojo Gone Wild!

I have been in the mood to create, create, create! It seems like I have so many ideas and luckily have had the time to put most of them to use. It's probably thanks to all the rainy days we've had lately that have had us stuck inside the house!

For Mother's Day, I made a really cute little wall hanging for my mom's sewing room. I sprayed a Maya Road canvas banner album page with Maya Mist, then stitched on a quote. I painted and dressed up some of the Maya Road chipoard sewing pieces and added some buttons. I was so happy with the way it turned out- especially because I had no real plans going into it, just a blank canvas staring at me and I kind of went with the flow as it came together.

I have done a few sketch challenges lately at Studio Calico. The first one was for NSD- I had to jump on this one because I am so in love with cute banners right now! The second one was a sketch based on a layout by Maggie Holmes. I really like how it turned out with the yellow cardstock. I'm pretty sure I've never used yellow as a background before, but I really like it! And I am IN LOVE with the Sassafrass Lass alphas I used on this page- I have them in 3 colors and they are just the perfect size!

I also couldn't stop with the About A Girl line from Fancy Pants and did another layout with those papers. I used some Cream and Cotton Candy Maya Mist and really loved how this one turned out, too!

I've been working on cards a lot lately because I had an order for a set of 12 birthday cards. I'm usually not a card person, but the more I do them, the more ideas I get and it's been a lot of fun. I hope to share them here soon!

Looks like you have been busy girl! What fabulous projects! And I can't wait to see the cards you are creating! I struggle with them most of the time too, but once I get on a roll I am OK!
