Topaz Club — Layout 5

Good morning everyone! Happy Wednesday to you. I’m so excited about today’s Mid Week Mojo sketch, mainly because I was soooo excited to use today’s steal, the American Crafts Campy Trails collection. Here’s a little fact about me. I pretty much detest camping. Now once upon a time I loved it (think childhood), but now not so much (think what kind of a vacation is camping when you’re the mom.  Oh yeah.  It’s not.) However I was giddy when I knew I’d be using today’s steal to create this week’s Mid Week Mojo. The colors and the designs of paper are simply divine! And there’s no need to be a camper, lthough if you are double bonus because camping papers don’t get any cuter than this! These papers are fantastic for a huge amount of things.

I wasn’t quite sure where this week’s sketch would lead but knew I wanted to have the opportunity to mix up the patterns, so there are a lot of layers and additions to make use of lots of patterns.

I’m also a full-blown Thickers addict. I simply love the ease of Thickers and the cute factor of the two sets included in today’s steal is off the charts.

I was so inspired by Melissa Dehne’s flower tutorial on yesterday’s How To’sday post that I decided to add one to my Mid Week Mojo. I think it was the perfect touch!

Hooray for another week of Mojo-ing! Participation has been outstanding and it’s been a true treat to see all of the different creations. Our random prize winner for this week is Charity Hotrum-Becker! Charity’s layouts are always a true artistic delight.
