Wow.  Can you belive that we are already on Mid Week Mojo #16?  Just a few short weeks and we will be celebrating our Emerald Club with another fantastic blog giveaway!

However, what we get to celebrate today is Christmas with our fantastic Facebook Fan, friend and guest designer, Jessica Fancher!

Several weeks ago I approached Jessica with asking her to be one of our guest designers for Mid Week Mojo.  When I asked her what she’d like to work with as far as product goes, she suggested something Christmas-y.  Luckily for her Melodee had the perfect steal already in the works, the Doodlebug Christmas Kit.

I asked Jessica to share a little bit about herself with us.  She writes:

First off I have to thank Kristy for asking me to be the Guest Sketcher this month.  I was very nervous because I am always the one doing the copying…..never the one being copied.  And thanks to Melodee for sending me the coolest kit ever!  It was so much fun to work with.

A little about me:  I have only been scrapbooking for a few years.  Before I started doing this, I never ever did anything like it.  My mom was always the crafty one, making my homecoming mums, school posters and etc.  Well, she asked me to go to a once a month scrapbooking get together at our church.  I had nothing and I just watched the first night.  Well, the next month I went again this time with a pre-made book, and I just added in my pictures.  Then I started acquiring more stuff, and started copying Lay-Outs, and eventually ended up here on my own doing them.  It was progression to say the least.

A little about my lay-out…..We always have Christmas with my Nana on Christmas Eve, and let me just tell you she goes all out on gifts, and gets the best of the best for EVERYONE!  I mean her Christmas tree looks like it threw up Christmas presents – literally!  We have always referred to her a “Nana-Claus” hence the title of my page.  It’s always as a great memory we will never forget!

Now about this amazing kit….The colors were simply brilliant and the embellishments were heavenly!  I loved the ribbon and the big buttons.  My circle embellishment with the jewel, I cut from one of the pages and used a puffy sticker to give it dimension.  I had a blast doing this layout and have actually done a couple more already with this paper.  I hope you like it and I can not see what y’all come with.

I love how Jessica used multiple, smaller photos for her layout.  I rarely scrapbook pages using standard sized photos, so this sketch design totally speaks to me!


I love how the tall rectangle photo could also be used for a perfect journaling spot.  I truly hope that I can find the time to get a layout done myself!

I just wanted to say thank you again to Jessica for taking on the challenge of being our guest sketcher for Mid Week Mojo this week.  I truly can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

Remember to post your layouts to our Faceobok Fan Page or personal blog and leave a comment with a link to your page here on this blog post, by next Monday night at Midnight to be eligible for our weekly random drawing.

Also be sure to check back tomorrow night for a sneak peek of what we have coming up on Friday.  Something we are truly excited to bring to you!

As always….happy scrapping!
