Mojo 229 -- A Surprise Hop for Julee!

Hello! It's time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch (#229). We're doing things a bit different this week as we are having a surprise hop for the new Mom-to-be, Julee! Joining the Mojo Makers are the Verve Divas and several of Julee's friends! The hop begins at Julee's blog, HERE. I hope you will hop along and see all the creations made especially for Julee and Mark, who will be doubling their family in a few weeks with twin boys!

If you are hopping along in order and have come from Lynda Benden's blog, then you are in the right place! If you're hopping along in order, your next stop is Mary's blog. For a complete list of participants, please go to Teresa's blog.


I flipped the base of the sketch but kept the top panel and layers as is. :) My mini Kraft bag was begging to be tilted slightly. I decorated the front of it and slipped a little tag inside to write a note.  I decided to represent the twins somewhat literally - 2 butterflies, 2 hearts and a double twine bow. I stamped the little butterfly twice (from Twitterpated) and cut them with the coordinating All Aflutter Die Set. "Special delivery" is from Practically Perfect. I also added the two little hearts from Wings of Love.

I popped up several of the panels. Here's a detail shot:
