Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge

 Its Mojo Monday time !!!   This week sketch designed by me, Alda is about the beginning of the summer end . August is here,  cooler nights, school shopping is around the  corner.  Its not here yet so lets give  summer of 2015 a  few  more weeks  of nothing but love as we catch a wave,  feel the sand beneath our feet and fill our pockets with shoreline treasures .

So enjoy the  summer and  grab  some inspiration from our  sketch this week and  from the  incredible  inspirational layout created by Lynne.

Hope to see some creativity flow for this week's sketch!

The Rules:

01. You have one week to create your project using the sketch as an inspiration (it does not have to be a layout, it can be a card, tag etc).

02. You must post your creation into the Mojo Monday thread in order to be eligible for the RAK .

03. You may use your project for any other monthly forum challenges except for the 'Anything Goes Challenge' or Use Your Stash Challenge

04. Your project must be posted no later than 8:00pm on 08/02/2015

*Please remember that your supplies do not have to come from the store to participate in any of our challenges! Flying Unicorn Forums is a place to share, learn, form friendships, and have too much fun with us!*

Dreams with Julie Nutting & Audrey

 “Never, ever, let anyone tell you what you can and can't do. 

Prove the cynics wrong. Pity them for they have no 

imagination. The sky's the limit. Your sky. Your limit. Now. 

Let's dance.”  
Tom Hiddleston

I love the Julie Nutting Doll Stamps and Audrey is the newest gal to join the collection of fun! Using the new collection from Trimcraft  - The Promise - a beautiful and elegant soft hue collection ranging from  ivories to browns and hints of grey 

I have escaped to flower heaven, with the mid release collections by Prima.  The Coy Flowers are truly divine  - these are a need, not a want !! The Petaloo butterflies are the cutest ever... and yes we can make out ow , but thee have such a uniqueness and add that perfect touch when paired with the Penny Lane Pearl Daisies - Antique Mauve

A time bandit with My Besties

“And she felt as though she had been there, 

on that bench, for an eternity. 

For an infinity of passion can be contained 

in one minute, like a crowd in a small space.” 
― Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary

A time bandit ... that is what I felt like creating this tag ... boxes still to be unpacked, drawers to still be organized and where can you find me for a brief moment in time- creating! The need, the passion finally overtook me, so create I must. Create I did. 

When I saw that Sherri Baldy was coming out with a  paper line, ohh my heart  skipped a beat maybe three with  pure joy and excitement.  You all must know by now  how much I love her  digital stamps,  but the  paper - ohh yeah Flying Unicorn needed, not  wanted to carry those. 

The image and the paper were all included in the Vintage Bestie Heart Collection 104-8. The  flowers, my  summer love  Prima Esperanza Sarita 581909 - the  butterfly is saved  for another project but  I did mix in the butterflies from Petaloo - Mini Butterflies 1486-106. The  Prima Bethany flowers -538576 have been cut and  are  tucked in here there and  a little  everywhere -those are my  so go to flowers .. versatile and yummy... the pearl  bling it was in my  left over lace and  ribbon stash matched  perfectly 

Off to do what I am suppose to do for now... play time tomorrow again shhh...
