Camp Mojo Creations...

So recently I attended Camp mojo 2013 and I had a blast! Amazing people who are all so friendly and inspiring! I actually managed 12 layouts plus a class layout which was taught by amazingly talented friend Louise Nelson.I think the fact that there is an entire tressle table for each person really helps the creativity as I was able to set up all my supplies so they were easily accessible!

So I thought I would begin sharing a few layouts with you.

This one is based on the latest sketch over at "Scrapfriends".

                                               And here is my layout based on the above sketch.
  This is just a layout I had fun creating for no particular reason! Crazy stitching, Mr Huey's neon mist , Ali Edwards stamps and some washi tape!
 This one I created based on the challenge over at "Scrap the boys" this month.
The challenge is to create a monochromatic layout with twine and chipboard! Check to all three!!!
I used teabags to create my background along with some machine stitching.

And I will just share this last one today which I created for a challenge at Camp mojo. The challenge was a chalkboard challenge!

I just received the latest "Cupcake kit" in the post today so I can't wait to share some of my creations using it soon!

Oh my gosh!

I can't believe it has been that long since I blogged!!!! Well I can really! I have now gained 2 jobs in the field I have always wanted to work in! I am now an additional assistant in two awesome kindergartens! I am SO happy!!! BUT it means I know work 5 days a week....eeek!!!
I wasn't really after 5 days of work but these amazing opportunities fell into my lap , so of course I will take them on!
But it has meant a HUGE decrease in my scrapping time. I find I am SO tired at night and obviously not home during the day so that doesn't leave any time to escape into my scrap room. This has meant I have lost so much of my mojo lately :(  When I do sit down to scrap I'm not in love with my work and then I just walk away and it all seems too hard :( I have actually never felt this bad before , to the point of thoughts of giving it up all together going through my mind. I never thought I would say that !
But I am hoping that once I settle into my new roles and it all becomes a little easier, and my study is complete ( yes I am studying as well!!!) my mojo will come back.
I have even cleaned out and decluttered my space to see if that helps. So fingers crossed.

All is not lost! I still created this layout for "A Piece of cake designs". I LOVE the new cupcake kits! They seem to suit my style!

So with the weather being so miserable lately I pulled out this fun , summery photo to scrap! 

I used a Heidi Swapp mask and colour shine to create the heart background and then used the small Heidi mask in the kit to doodle in some smaller stars, hearts and circles!
I added a few of the paper strips for some colour and of course the paint dauber was perfect to add a dry brush paint effect!

You can see I have added a few bits of washi tape from my stash along with the cute little sequins from the kit! LOVE sequins!!!! It's about as sparkly as I get!!! LOL!

I also have some layouts I have done about a month ago that I haven't shared and a layout I created of Maya a few weeks ago  that was for 123 challenge last month that I didn't have time to upload :(

Anyway I have another layout I created using a Piece of cake designs " cupcake kit" so I WILL be back soon!!!
