Mojolicious Inspiration

Good Morning & Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful & relaxing weekend....I sure did and I'm wishing school was out for good!  We only have a few more months to go & then I'll truly be happy!!!

My card for today is for a couple of challenges that I LOVE playing in.....the layout is for Mojo Monday & the colors came from the absolutely beautiful cake featured at Cupcake Inspirations.  I also made the top 5 last week @ Cupcake Inspirations & that totally made my day!!  Thanks for the kudos ladies!!!!  This week's sketch is pretty awesome but I had to use some busy DSP so I tried to tone it down as much as possible with the photo corners & a bit of bling. I also spritzed my old olive piece with champagne shimmer mist--you can't tell by the picture-- & added the white dots to accent those pieces in hopes of bringing attention away from the pattern on the DSP......my children approved of the final piece so I can assume that it's all good!!!!

On a final note, I'm on the hunt for an AWESOME bakery for my oldest boys' high school graduation in May & his 18th birthday in July so if you know of any good ones in the Chicago Metropolitan Area---preferably further south like the Orland Park-Tinley Park area; please leave me a comment or send me an email with the links & your experience with them so I can check them out!!

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
