I SEEM TO HAVE MISPLACED MY MOJO

Can anyone help me find it??!!! I cannot tell you how many pieces of card stock and dsp ended up in the trash last night - sheesh!! It's like I have never stamped before!! So, I decided to use a sketch to get some creative juices flowing and remembered I had seen a fabulous one on Nikki's blog. If you have not been over to her blog, check it out, she is very talented and a sweetheart to boot! I am not thrilled with the outcome, but I thought I would share it anyway. They can't all be great, right?!! The sketch is fabulous, and I probably will use it again - it's a fun layout! And, I am just happy I had time to stamp! I tell ya, Bella is a cutie, but she is a lot of work too, lol!! I don't get a whole lot of sleep at night because she gets up to go outside about every 2-3 hours.....I am hoping that will end very soon! So, by the end of the day, I am pretty worn out. I am hoping to get us all on some sort of schedule soon so I can get back to my regular stamping times as well as get other things done - like groceries, lol!! Right now, we have NOTHING in the house! So, I am going to do that today and hopefully will find some time and creative juices this afternoon and stamp something. I need to get my stuff done for Kayla's party so that is on my to-do list! I also feel bad because I have not had time to blog hop, but I hope to do that this morning for a little while anyway!! Thanks for still coming to visit me - I appreciate it!!! 'Till tomorrow!!

Oh, Alex, I don't think your mojo has gone AWOL at all. This card is beautiful! I have always thought 'sketch challenge' is a good thing :)

Your mojo is doing just fine chickie, your card is beautiful! And the new addition to your family is adorable!! Oh my gosh , totally sweet. We would love to bring another pup into the household but our dog would probably eat it for a snack. She is so jealous we don't think she would handle that too well!
