Mojo Monday #97

This week's Mojo Monday was a little bit of a challenge for me. I knew I wanted to use this flower, but coming up with the right combination took me over an hour. I hate it when I become stalled on a card. I'm not particularly happy with the end result either. Maybe I'll try my luck at making a scrapbook layout with this sketch.

Materials: CS, inks, Say it in Style ss, Playful Flourishes ss, and metal token--CTMH,
unknown DP and flower, Swiss Dot folder--CB, Thicker corner sticker--AC, buttons--Walmart, gem--Michael's, scallop punch--EK
Even though the temperature reached 97 degrees today, my condo stays a lovely 25 degrees cooler. I get about 5 hours of morning sun. So that means that I can still enjoy cooking on my stove. I had some mascarpone cheese to use up and found this recipe by Giada De Laurentis. Orechiette pasta, spicy sausage, cannellini beans, onions, oregano, and the mascarpone. VERY simple to make, and ohh sooo delicious! A little on the heavy side, so I will definitely be making this come fall and winter.



Wow!! Great job;) Beautiful flowers
