MOJO 147 - Baby Girl Card

Seems like the month of July is birthing many babies with many families that I know.  So... here is Baby Girl Card I made.. following the Monday MOJO sketch # 147.  I knew I wanted to have pink in the color combo... but wanted a contrast color as well. After fumbling a bit... it turned out to my satisfaction.  Thanks for looking!!

My First Blog Candy Win!! Yahoo!!

Hi All!  Just adding a quick tidbit about my first ever winnings of some super fun Blog Candy from Ms. Gabyangel over at  :-)  I am just a little excited!! 
I would include the link... but my computer is not happy with alot of links.  Gaby's blog was one of the first that I started to follow.  Her type of scrapbooking is a very clean, simple, elegant approach with that just right over the top "Punch" to make it all just POP.  I love her style for inspiration.  I highly suggest you check her out if you haven't already. 
Thanks Gaby!!  Now off to get my craft on!! (Had a busy... fun weekend.)
