Wedding Anniversary, turning into a "Mojo Monster" and a FREE Little Something for YOU!

It was my hunny and I'se wedding anniversary this past weekend and we had a nice quiet, relaxing and romantic weekend.  My sweet husband made a card for me (got into all my supplies) bought me two pretty dresses, he cooked gourmet for me and we did go out for lunch one day as well.  I even curled my hair, put on fakery nails and tried a different style of makeup, so fun!  Not that this is confined to our anniversary weekend - my man makes many weekends special like this for me.   I'll have to share my gift to him in another blog post as he's taken it with him in our VW. 

Before I forget, C from Paris - I do not have an email for you so am leaving a message for you here.  You can send me an email at lalalime(at)hotmail{dot}com - brackets placed in my email address to foil the spammers.  I am looking for that Grunge element you spoke of - have to search back on my archives and hope to locate it and offer it again.  Thanks for asking!

So - I want to share a pretty layout made by my Sister in Law Judy.  She used my Vintage Love kit - I'll link below. 

Unfortunately Judy does not recall where she got the word art and I don't think the red rose was mine, unlss of course Judy re-colored it - could be (scratching my head..)  But I love it, thanks so much!  Judy has another beautiful layout, and probably a Mojo by the time you read this - click HERE if you'd like to check it out.

If you have made a layout or project using my products I'd love to showcase them here - just send me an email with a resized jpg (600 x 600) and I'll be delighted to post it. 

You can find my Vintage Love kit - and a whole lot of NEW love themed products from the talented designers at SBE by clicking HERE for the store in general and HERE for my kit in particular. 

And if you are adventurous - why not hop over to my friend Linda's blog - Bon Scrapetit, for some fun and a challenge.  Linda always has something free and pretty and right now she's got a contest on - you could win a $$ giftcard!  Tell her I sent you on over! Just click HERE.

Thank you to each of you who visited my Sister in Law Neti for the launch of her blog - and I'm writing to tell you that she has just posted a video of their trip home via the Roger's Pass.  They came awfully close to an avalanche - managing to get some dramatic photos!  Glad you are safe and sound.  Just click the NETI link in my Family group of links to the right. 

This next random pic is for my Sis, Nina haha (the one who turned me onto being a mojo-er, click her link under family in the sidebar)

Fat as little footballs, aren't they?

And now, its Mojo time.  You may have noticed I called this post "Mojo Monster" - thats because its got me!  I sorta look forward to Mondays now with glee (rubbing my hands)  and I also try to do several at once to save time.  Well, you see by the time I get the sketch figured out in my mind, get all the supplies out - why I figure I may as well do more than one.  But - I see I am allowed to enter the Mojo as many times as I like so I think I am going to spread my four cards out over the next couple of days so that I don't bore you to death here haha!   

And here is my first (of four) takes on Mojo - the rest to follow in the coming days!

And finally as promised - a little gift for you, created by my Mr. who spent some time showing me some magic in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop over the weekend.  Now THAT'S amore!

    First i wish to say that you and your husband are sincerely beautiful on this picture !
    From what you wrote, he really is so thoughtful and tender, moreover a good cook ! By chance, would he have an unattached brother ? ;)

    About the grunge set, from my file, it was downloaded in November 2006, so i took the liberty to find it for you so you don't loose your time : you proposed it on November 28th 2006 and the matching "frosted flake frames" on November 30th 2006.
    Thank you ever so much for you kindness.
