Scrapbooksteals Jade series is good for the mojo...

*Warning* Long, photo heavy post

You never know where your online interactions will go, do you? I have been a part of a Facebook scrapbooking group for a few years now and have been making friends all over Canada as a result. All of the members post our projects for challenges, contests, etc. One friend has been posting about the scrapbooksteals blog for a few weeks now and I decided to look it up. I happened to be checking at the end of a 10 part sketch series entitled Jade for their Mid Week Mojo. You can check out the deets here. Well I took it into my head that I was going to complete the whole series before the deadline.....yeah, so I printed off the 10 sketches Friday afternoon. I finished all of those plus one for another challege - post to come in a few days.

Anywho, on to the layouts. I am posting them with the sketch so you can see how they compare. When I'm looking at layout's online it's nice to see the actual interpretation.

#1 Ooo....Scary  bee? (MM in Grade 5, age 10. Old Fancy Pants papers, etc)
#2 Grin (MM age 1)

# 3 Sew Darn Cute (Echo Park This & That)

#4 This is me @ 38 (I rotated the sketch to make it work for my photo - old MME/Basic Grey)

#5 Welcome to our crazy mixed up family (MM's christening - old pics don't give you the option of choosing the best ones sometimes - DQ was NOT happy with the arrival of her baby sister lol but sadly this is the only group shot I have)

#6 Hot Wheels (rotated to make my pic work. Down to the bare bones of my SS Fabulous kit *gasp*)

#7 You are Fabulous (I cracked open the MME Sweetest Thing and used up some older Making Memories ribbon)
#8 Chillin' (Big Brother at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta a couple years ago)

#9 True Colours (DQ a few years ago - she HATES the pic. Her dear old dad doesn't like it either. I love the contrast of the lyrics and the sadness I feel from the pic - I rotated it to make it work for my pic)
#10 My Silly Man (just once I would like to get a photo of Hubs with a simple smile. Don't get me wrong, I love him dearly because he is goofy but do ya know what I'm sayin? Just once would be nice....)
Phew, hopefully you're still with me......talk about gettin' the mojo flowing. I can't wait for the next series at scrapbooksteals. Now I gotta go home and clean up the house, haha, cause with all this scrappin' I certainly didn't do a lot of cleanin'......
