     It's another Mojo Monday and the new sketch from Flying Unicorn is fabulous! http://flyingunicornforums.com/forum/topic/2390  !
Here is my interpretation of the sketch.The photo is of the Atlantic Ocean at Pawleys Island, SC. My husband and daughter are in the chairs facing the ocean and if you look closely in the center chair you will see my little chihuahua, Jumbo, sitting on the little cabana chair I made for him! Jumbo loved the beach and loved going on vacation with his family!

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

It has been a rainy Saturday here in Ohio which prevented me from getting some yard work done so I have taken advantage of this time to be able to scrapbook!

'Tis the Season

    This layout was created for the challenge at Flying Unicorn at http://flyingunicornforums.com/forum/topic/2350/page/2#194652/page/2.
 I had no intention of doing this challenge as I had already scrapped all my Christmas pics from last year but then I remembered this pic I had taken with my phone. My daughter was home from college and we went shopping and the store had a sleigh set up. I convinced her to jump in the sleigh so I could take a picture! Her smile doesn't really reflect what she was thinking!!! But because she loves her momma, she graciously got in the sleigh and allowed me to snap a pic!

Products used:
Paper- My Mind's Eye- All is Bright collection
Punch- Martha Stewart
Chipboard trees- Tattered Angels
Ink mist- Shimmerz- Goldie Lox
Flowers- Paper Studio
Cord and trim- stash

I never leave home without a camera and was delighted with the pictures I was able to get. Here is the sketch I based my layout on from http://mycreativesketches.blogspot.com/
