Mojo Monday 142

I can' believe how fast this weekend went...and you know what...remember how I mentioned "June Gloom" yesterday - well, it ended up being a beautiful day.  I took the kids to the Children's Museum, which is the BEST!  We're so lucky to have this amazing museum in our backyard, in fact it was the winner of the 2009 Nickelodeon's Parents' Picks Award for "Best Museum".  Both kids had a great time, and are begging for me to take them back next weekend.  I also got some good crafting time in.  My little one took a nice, long nap which allowed me to work on this week's Mojo Monday's sketch, and then was total bliss.

Here's this week's sketch:
And here's my card (MOJO142):

And here's another version of the card. I know, another baby card - what can I say...everyone around me is having a baby (sorry for the poor lighting).

I also decided to try Splitcoasts's CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge this week.  The challenge was to include one of your favorite quote, verse, or saying into the design.  I love this quote, and decided to make this for a dear friend who is recovering from back surgery.

And yet another's amazing what can be accomplished when I get some "me" time in.
This one was made for my son's teacher who loves frogs.  Inside I included a CD of pictures I took of all the kids during open house.  They were all dressed as historical Californians, and did a great job as living statues coming to life, giving a brief story about their lives.  They kids did a remarkable job!

That's it for me.  I am now going to wait anxiously for the next preview posting from Papertrey Ink...I love the 15th of every month.  That's when they release all their new products....I feel like a kid waiting for the holiday Kids R Us toy catalog to come out.

Live well,
