Out of This World

Ok, one more post before I have to run out and do a few errands. I always print off Julee's Mojo Monday sketches, and never get around to doing them in the appropriate week. BUT, here's my first Mojo Monday, done before the next one is posted!! This is Mojo Monday #29.

My first intinct was to drag out the flourishes and flowers again for this layout, but then I thought of all the little boy birthday cards that I need through the year. So instead of florals, I reached for SU! By Air. I love this set, which is similar to By Land, with obvious differences. It is the first time I have inked the spaceship. I used Versamark and clear embossed it on navy paper. The weathered brown panel is from CTMH, and the panels under the sentiment are from my stash. They were part of a RAK and I don't have the paper name. The sentiment is stamped freehand (can you tell?) with letter stamps from Target. You would never know that I really DID use the Stamp-a-ma-jig! Oh well, the letters look like they are floating in space, right?
The stars are eyelets from my stash, covering up a botched embossing job (I'll spare you the details). Now I just have to remember this is in my stash when the next birthday rolls around :)

OK, off to the post office, the bank, the pharmacy, and maybe to Target. Or maybe Barnes and Noble to treat myself to a Cafe Mocha? Decisions...

Thanks for looking!
