Lost and Found!!!

I thought I lost my mojo!!
Although I had all my purchases with me, I was not motivated to sit for a layout!!
Weird!!! Weird!!!
I just thought I will make a layout irrespective of how I feel.
Maybe just sit on the table and go through my old stash and make a layout.
No sketch, no challenges, nothing.. starting with a clean slate.
Thats why I picked up Fancy Pants The Daily Grind Chalkboard paper as the base.
Picked a photo randomly. This is the photo of my mom, dad and my brother.
I rounded the corners and then mounted it on a piece of blue card stock.
a yellow ribbon and wrapped it around on the bottom and tied the ribbon.
Then I picked up the Fancy Pants Holly Molly Snowflakes paper.
Lots of picking!!! Yup, just picked and picked randomly!!!lol!
Wanted to use the bright pink side.
Cut a medium rectangle piece and round the edges using the corner punch.
I placed this piece at the right hand centre of the base paper.
Mounted the blue cardstock with the photo on the rightside of the pink paper.
Again I had the leftover piece of black zigzag paper,
which I added at the bottom of the blue cardstock.
I then used a circle punch and punched two circles out of my bits and pieces of stash.
Placed them as shown in the layout, half tucked under the pink paper.
Took a rectanglar piece of yellow cardstock tucked under the pink paper in thet op rightside.
I then doodled using my pink gel pen. added a black flower punched out of the flower punch I received from Shell. Added a green pearl in the centre.
The journalling tag is made out of a piece of green paper cut to the size of 7 gypies overlay
and I used dymo to make the journalling words.
I loved the tiny pegs, I bought few months ago.
I used them to clip the paper and the overlay together.
Flowers are from Prima, Mulburry paper flower, Green Tara.
Brads and buttons from my stash.
Just to add texture I used White Slick Kindy Glitz to doodle around the pink paper
and also the large doodle on the top.
For the title, I have used Heidi Swapp “Family” stamp, to stamp on a yellow piece of paper,
cut it out and inked the edges.
I am pretty happy with the outcome.
A nice bright piece of color on the chalkboard.
Afterall, my mojo did not go anywhere.lol!!!
