return of the mojo?...

Good morning everyone did you all have a wonderful weekend?...we had a fantastic time at the wedding, the Bride was stunning (I'm not biased at all because shes my Niece lol), the Groom was so handsome in his navy uniform too...the venue was just wow, you can see it here it was like something out of a movie inside too...we seriously don't have any luck with flying at all though do we, on the way out we were supposed to arrive in Newcastle at about 10pm but the plane was late so we were delayed 40 mins, no too bad so we all trooped through the departure gate to board then were all turned back into the lounge as the light bulb on the emergency door was faulty so they had to get it checked out just in case, couldn't find a spare bulb and had to fly another plane from Edinburgh to get us...so we finally arrived at our hotel at about 1am...didn't get to sleep until 2.30 and up again at 7am to get ready for the early wedding...ooooohhhhh we were so tired, but the adrenaline of the day kicked in luckily and we made it and managed to stay awake until 10.30pm, then we finally had to give in and get back to the hotel for sleep...if you find out which flight I'm on don't book it lol...I'm a flying jinx I think...we were then up early Sunday morning and Phil took my Daughters other half to see Newcastle football ground as hes a football freak while we got ready for an early lunch with Phil's family...it was wonderful to catch up with my side of the family on Saturday and Phil's on Sunday and we got to finally introduce our Daughters lovely fella to them...he loved the whole weekend and is so lovely he got on with everybody like he had known them all his life, but he is one of life's good guys...right I think that's enough waffling for this morning don't you lol...I have photos for you but need to download them, I think we even got one of me somewhere in them all lol...right my card for today...well what do you think has the mojo finally poked its head out of where its hiding?, I think its coming back as I really enjoyed making this card...it might have something to do with this amazing Mo's Digital Pencil image...isn't it beautiful...this is So Funny...I coloured it with distress inks and did a bit of double paper piecing with her (ooohhhhh I love cutting out so much)...I teamed her up with more of this stunning Carta Bella - Beautiful Moments 6x6 Paper Pad, I'm gutted that this stunning pad is finished and might have to buy another from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with some a punched flower, buttons, a red ribbon and a sentiment cut from the same pad...I haven't a clue where the sketch is from so if any of you do let me know please and don't know what other challenge to enter it for as I haven't seen any for a few days but will add them later...I'm off back to bed as I'm nursing a bad headache and sore throat (too much shouting, laughing and singing I think lol)...whatever your up to today had a fabulous day

She is very cute! The dog next to her looks like the Simon Says Stamp dog!

Who knew that Mo would be the key to unlock some mojo? In retrospect it seems obvious (or at least punny).

Rufus said...

Well,except for the flight, a rather major exception, the rest of the weekend sounds marvelous! Will be looking forward to the pictures. Looks like Mr. Mojo came home when you did! (if he ever left, lol)
Welcome home,
