Mojo Monday #50

Here is my try at Mojo Monday #50 . I received this Penny Black image from the PIF group on SCS. If you want a way to get lots of fun new images to play with then check out the PIF thread under the Swap forum on Splitcoast Stampers. It is a funny group of girls who can chat like nobody's business and they have lots of great images they are willing to trade.

Thanks for looking!!

Supplies: Stamps-Penny Black Garden Gossip, Hero Arts sentiment; Paper- Basic Grey Euphoria, SU cardstock; Misc-Nestibilites circles, Ribbon, Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, Cuttlebug embossing folder.

More Reading Around Here...

Last weekend I finished reading the last 2 books from The Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer. LOVED THEM!!!! I was so sad to get to the end of the last book. This is the kind of love story that every woman want to be real.

Did you know they are making a movie out of the first book Twilight? Click here to go to the website that shows the trailer. As usual I don't think the movie is going to be as good as the book and I'm really not sure about the cast. The actor that was cast as Edward just doesn't feel right just from what I've seen of the trailer and photos. He just isn't what I would have picture him to look like I guess.

Blogger's Challenge 60 - Birthday Cards

Here is my card for this week challenge to make birthday cards:

I know I'm late again posting this. Don't know what my problem is with time lately other than having too much going on in my head to focus & concentrate well. Anyway this is a simply card. The layout is one of Beate's weekend sketches . I finally used one of the Cuttlebug embossing folders I just had to have. Be sure to check the other girls great cards by clicking on the blogger's challenge button to the right.

What is 7249?

How many pages I have read since mid May! Talk about a major reading jag. I knew that I had been reading a whole lot lately but didn't realize just how much so. You may be wondering what I have been reading so here goes:

Janet Evanovich - The Stephanie Plum series 1-14 including the 3 novellas. (17 books in total.)
Stephanie Meyer - Twilight & New Moon
Sue Grafton - T is for Trespass
Diane Whiteside - The Irish Devil
America's Cheapest Family
1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12

GRAND TOTAL - 23 books in about 2-1/2 months

I'll come back and try to give a review for all of these books as I have time. I'm in the middle of reading another book when I'm not studing.

Blogger's Challenge 58 - Color Challenge

Sorry this is a day late. I complete failed to realize that yesterday was Friday until way late in the day and I did a mental head slap about not having the challenge done. So here it is finally.
This weeks challenge was another color challenge. We were to use Old Olive, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Rose Red. Here is what I came up with:When I read this challenge I wasn't sure I was going to be able to put these colors together in a way that would be pleasing but I actually like how it came out. It looks much better irl, my camera isn't doing much for this. The layout is another one from Beate's weekend sketches.

Supplies - Stamps: Candles-unknown, Words-Amuse, Paper: SU, Misc: Crystals-KI Memories. It is colored in with Prismacolor pencils and a blender pencil. I actually did not use any Gamsol this time. I'm trying really hard to learn how to use these pencils to their fullest potential. Be sure to click on the Blogger's Challenge button on the right to…
