Mojo Monday #10

Happy Monday everyone!  The groundhog was wrong in Iowa, because today it started SNOWING again.  I don't mind snow days oh so much today.  Sometimes snowdays are a perfect excuse to stay in and get some projects around the house.  My big project today is to finish moving my office and putting together some shelving.  So, if I don't answer the phone or return emails right away, I promise, I'm okay...probably just burried under shelves, paper, or adhesives! 

Today's Mojo Monday has two challenges which I incorporated into my layout.  I stamped Unity's new Sweetest Day co-branded stamp on adhesive felt which I then colored with Copic Markers.  My second challenge was scrapbooking about something very personal and painful to me.  I almost didn't scrapbook the layout because it brought tears to my eyes, but actually scrapbooking the picture helped me work through some emotions that I have been bottling up inside. 

I want to encourage you to go "Out of the Box" and scrapbook on materials that you may not have thought to use in a layout and of course, we scrapbook to record memories, good or bad.  Get out those pictures that may be somewhat painful and glorify them through your craft.
