Not Mojo Monday

No, my mojo hasn't deserted me, I just haven't used last week's sketch yet.

First up is a LO for the Rainbow Round Robin on Flying Unicorn.
Each team of four people was assigned a colour that had to be the predominant colour in our LOs.

I was week three for Maggi's team...can you guess which colour we were??

I used papers from Club Scrap..I think it was a Valentine kit. I coloured the doily with persimmon distress ink, used lots of punches from Woodware, EK success and Martha Stewart, then added bling and lots of flowers from my stash.

The next challenge was to do a time related LO using the Oct. kit.

I used Prima "Craftsman" papers and some gold embellies from the kit,then added some Prima bling ,a wooden clock  and a bottle cap trinket (all from the "Craftsman" range) then finished off with flowers and stick pins from stash.
I adapted a sketch by Tiare Smith.

I have done other crafting ...just forgot to to take a photo before I posted them....we're doing a Christmas Tag swap on Tag Tuesday...I was so happy making my tags for this (we had to make five) that I forgot all about my tag for Tuesday...the theme was "rust"...I thought I had a suitable photo for this but couldn't find it...:(

I spent yesterday evening making more Christmas tags...I found it quite relaxing and not too hard on my hands...they haven't recovered from last week when I was cutting chipboard for a secret project.

Had a good weekend...we went shopping in Aylesbury on Saturday and had a cream tea @ M&S courtesy of my birthday voucher. Home to walk Max and then we went out for an Indian meal and a couple of drinks..bumped into a friend of the working at Oxford Uni as a Lab Technician so using his Chemistry degree.

I really must do some of the "h" word...and the dreaded "i" word....see you later in the week!
