Mojo 104

I love logging on on a Tuesday morning (we all know America is behind the times - lol) to find out what the MojoMonday sketch of the week is.

Some really appeal and others are a bit meh, but I really liked this one and I had all my circle punches out so I got stuck into it.

I used the watermark cartridge in the rollagraph to emboss the black background onto the white cardstock. I then used Perfect Medium and the Fancy Flourish stamp to emboss the large circle and the scallop circle in black. I also embossed the sentiment and cut out with the smaller circle punch. The scalloped circles behind the large circle are inked with Ancient Page, and I used 3 and cut each in half, then layered them around underneath because one was not large enough to be seen under the big circle. It also gives it a 3D feel. The ribbon is layered and attached, then I cut some 1/2 inch strips of plain black cardstock to put under the main elements to add a bit of contrast.

Now I'm planning on cleaning out my scrapping area this afternoon and getting rid of all of the old bits and pieces that I am never going to use. I don't know whether to try and sell some of it on ebay or just give it away.

And lastly, I have my photo from yesterday. I was driving in the driveway yesterday when I noticed a swallow clinging to the brick pillar at the front of the house, but by the time I raced inside and grabbed my camera it had gone :( so instead I have a picture of our lunch - pizza muffins. Just have to decide the worthy camera moment for today... maybe all my scrapping mess!!! So what are you taking your photo of today??
