Midweek Catch Up - lots of mojo

My mojo has been making a bit of an appearance so I've been taking advantage of it. Today I have two blog posts that I prepared layouts for...

First, I had my first blog post for Me So Scrappy today. I did a photo prompt for the month. Check it out HERE. This is the layout that I completed as an example using one of the featured designers' goodies. Kristin is one of my favorite designers so I was super excited that she's featured on Me So Scrappy this month.

I also had a Flashback Focus post today on Penny's blog. Flashback Focus is when we feature a product in Penny's shoppe that was released awhile ago and I featured the Picture Play overlays that are totally awesome! HERE's my post where I show some edited photos using them and a few layouts. Be sure to check out the Picture Play bundles, such a great deal for some really fun picture overlays. Here is the layout I created for it using the Grunge pack.

Next is a layout I created using a free template on Penny's blog. You can find it HERE. Be sure to leave thanks to Crystal Livesay for the wonderful template!

The next two layouts were created for the portfolio challenges at Sweet Shoppe Designs. This one was to be inspired by this photo and I was inspired to pretty much copy it with patterned paper and make a layout that actually looks like a wall. I even added the swirly stuff like the cool vinyl stuff you see lately. This is totally not my style of scrapping but something I actually want to do in my house. On Monday I found out that it was picked as "layout of the week" at Sweet Shoppe Designs which was my first time ever and it totally made my day!
