Some mojo & a little secret...

Finally I took a photo of my layout for the Scrap Mojo challenge. But before I show you I just want to say how much I love the dollar store, just wondering through it hunting for hidden treasures calms my soul...yes I'm a freak! In the kids craft section I found a package of burlap that I passed up before because the colors are hideous, but I just couldn't resist it anymore, all it need was a little paint!
The honey comb looking strip at the bottom is another dollar store find, I got a whole roll of it, again a little paint and it's perfect!
I hit Chapters today and picked up Simple Sewing by Lotta Jansdotter, this is the secret part don't tell my Mom!! My Mom is an avid sewer, she makes drapes mainly but will make other things for me on request. I have always resisted sewing it just never gave me any interest, but now that I sew on my layouts and I can sort of sew a straight line I've gotten the urge to branch out. Shock I know!! So lets keep this hush hush, I want to surprise my Mom (hoping she doesn't read this) once I've actually made something.
Well the chicklets are raising the roof so I better go!
Ciao!
