Mid Week Mojo Challenge Lolite 7

I haven't really been feelign the mojo lately so  I decided I had to do something to try and kick it back into gear. What more perfect way of doing so than by joining in on the Mid Week Mojo challenges at 
This weeks challenge Lolite 7 was to create a layout using this sketch

My Take on the sketch using papers from My Mind's Eye Antique Florals Collection. Elements are also all My mind's eye, various collections.

 My sister passed away October past and it's been difficult trying to cope and accept. I have been wanting to use her pictures in layouts but it hasn't been easy. This is a photo of Janice and Suki the dog she spoiled beyond all measure.
Thanks for looking.

Catherine and Cathy Birthday Challenge

Happy New Year everyone!!

It's been a little while since I've posted anything, but I have done a few things in the scrap room over the last few weeks. December was a busy month, I was preparing for radioactive Iodine radiation treatment (which involves going on a low iodine diet for 2 weeks and taking Thyrogen shots to make your body super hypothroid to better help the treatment take) After the treatment I had to isolate from other people because the amount of radioactive radiation in my body was and could be a danger to other people. But now it is all done and I'm looking forward to a strong. more focused. healthier New Year!!
I figured a great way to start off the new year would be by joining in a few challenges, Of course the first place I went was to Cathy and Catherine's blog, Cathrine and Cathy Create , where they host a number of challenges monthly.  One of the challenges this month is "Cards Challenge: Birthday Bo-nan-za!"

So this is the card I came up with to help re-stock my birthday pile! 

I stamped the white card base using HeroArts rubber stamp Script, I used Martha Stewarts score board to corrugate the black card stock. Different sized circle and scallop punches. The Celebrate word from Close to My Heart "Me to You" collection. A few red roses and some added rhinestones for sparkle and finished !

Have a great day!!!!
