    Mojo and Passion

    Wondering what Mojo and Passion have in common? Well a lot actually. Tonight I am posting to share with you the page that I made for MOJO GIRLZ. This is a relatively new sight that is going to focus on getting you to get in touch with your inner scrapper. This past months challenge was to scrap a word that was important to you. The idea was to scrap without a photo but those that felt they needed a photo were welcome to use a photo.

    Sheryl is an amazing scrapper, I love her work its rich with texture and obscure scrapping items. She asked me to do this challenge and I will admit that I have been putting it off. Not because it was hard to scrap without photos but because I couldn't decide on one word that meant alot to me.

    So I chose Passion:It covers so many aspects of my life and I don't even begin to cover them all in this layout. However, it will probably prompt a second page that explores the passionate nature of my personality.

    Thankful for all my yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows

    Happy Thanks giving to all of you that recognize Canadian Thanksgiving. Its been a great weekend filled with lots of work, fun, laughter, love and appreciation of each other.

    Now I can't show you this whole layout until after the next round of voting at So you think you can scrap but I did want to show you that flowers are more than just the plain jane that you see in the stores. Mist them, fold them and attach. The swirls are hand drawen with glue and covered with MM sparkles. I can post the picture after you have stopped off and voted this coming week.
    "So You Think You Can Scrap" Contest! Come and vote for your favorite submission in this week's round! !

    Well I just had to share this really precious photo from Charmaine and Dwayne's wedding. I had a great time shooting the photos. The flower girl was totally enamoured with Gizmo. A wonderful cream colored dog.........causing many adults to panic at the white fur on your chocolate brown gown. I captured this knowing I would be in hot water with those same adults but it was so very worth it to see you so happy. Besides a day without dog fur is like a day without sunshine.

    I have another photo that I haven't scrapped yet but that made my heart melt when I first shot it and again when I saw it on the screen. A moment between father and son, there were many people milling about kids darting around but Russ and Curtis there was just them and the puzzle they were working on. Many people would wonder why this photo touches me. I would have loved for my son to have that same sort of moment with a man he could call Dad. In a few years Curtis won't necessairly remember this moment. However, when he is a man and see's this photo he will know how his Dad mad time just for him
    when there was so much going on. I can hardly wait to see what Amanda does with photo.
