Another fantastic Mojo Monday sketch! This one must have inspired me because I finished it in half the time I normally do.

Here is the sketch:

Photo Editing: Frame-Ups & Special Effects Day 1

At work, I have been super busy with proofing and editing all the copy for the magazine. I was hoping to use my lunch hours to do the Photo Editing: Frame-Ups & Special Effects class from jessicasprague.com. Luckily I had some time this morning to do Project 1: Frame Up and Word-i-fy. Here is what I created:

So much fun! This photo was taken last weekend in Dubuque right next to the Mississippi River. See the bridge in the background? I didn't want to cover the bridge with the word art, so I put the word art in the top left corner instead of the bottom left like Jessica did. I like it this way. Plus I love that this lesson included a word so appropriate for my daughter.

Now I'm off to try Day 2!

So, here I am, taking a break from editing magazine articles to create a card. I know it's Thursday. Um, please don't judge me. At least I do have some mojo. Anyway, first I present the Week 94:
