I Dusted Off the Mojo!

I decided that the only way I was going to get creative was if I MADE myself do it (and perhaps with a little nudge from some friends too! hehe) So along came the perfect opportunity to motivate me and dip my toe back into the scrappy waters - the Scrapbooking Top 50 Monopoly Challenge! Although the game has officially started, IT'S NOT TO LATE TO JOIN IN!!! There are heaps of great prizes up for grabs (including a grand prize worth $200!) and the challenges also promise to be great.


Soooo...first up is the "GO" Challenge, which gets you onto the "Go" space on the board. You have to create a LO with the letters GO as the start of a word in your title or subtitle, and include a "game" item such as a ticket, playing card, etc.

Here's what I came up with (first LO in over 18 months and the first one of my boys - I felt SO rusty!)...


I used the word "gorgeous" and included a bingo card (you can see it peeking out from under the pp). I also used one of my own Lovelybug Bits n Bobs fabric buttons...


The next challenge (Week 1) is all about trends. The challenge varies, depending on what number you "rolled" on the board. I landed on "Bling Chest" which meant I could choose any of the other Week 1 challenges, plus include bling on my LO. I chose "Glitter Lane" and the criteria were paints, glitter & stars.

Here is my LO...


There is lots of sparkle & shine on this LO thanks to metallic paint, glimmermist, kindy glitz & sequins (so hard to show in a photo!)...


Now I have 2 challenges done, I am itching for more! LOL (I hope this mojo sticks around!) X
