Mojo Monday

Good morning! I actually had time to make a Mojo Monday card for the first time in three weeks. Sheesh time flies! I hereby admit that I like the circle in this sketch. Maybe it's because it's small, maybe because it's surrounded by a rectangle. I don't know what it is, but it works. :)

I pulled out some more of my beautiful Cosmo Cricket Everafter dp and got down to business. I knew I wanted to make this a more elegant card, and ended up making a sympathy card. Fortunately, I don't need these very often, but when I do I'm always glad to have one on hand. It's so hard to make them when they are needed.

For another shock today, there is no ribbon on this card. Nor are there buttons! I kept it oober simple with just jewels to adorn the card. With sympathy cards, you want your words to be the main focus, not all the business (in my opinion). Well, at least that's the direction this card took, and the story I'm stick to! lol

This morning is the big "all district" welcome back celebration. Basically, it's where everyone gets together and goes "yay for another fantastic year" at 8:00 in the morning. hehe I guess it is always fun to see everyone though. We also have our first staff meeting immediately following back at our own school sites. I'm usually not a giant fan of staff meetings, but this one I'm looking forward to. I'm excited to meet everyone on the staff and start learning the culture of the school, and what makes it tick. The afternoon will be ours to work away in our classrooms. Thank goodness! I'm really close to being done. Definitely down to the little details, but I can definitely use all the time allowed! Kids come on Tuesday!

Have a wonderful Friday and thanks for stopping by!
