Banana Split Sunday!

It's great to be back after a week in California! CHA was amazing, and I arrived home exhilarated and exhausted all at the same time! I don't think I have ever been so tired!

New paper crafting and stamping products should be hitting the stores any minute and I can hardly wait to create with them, but as much as new *toys* might be *all that* they are not what made CHA the best week ever! The special thing about CHA is meeting friends and enjoying spending time with people who share your passion. I met so many of my long-time idols and beloved online friends...what a great week! I've never seen so much creativity and talent under one roof! If you're on Facebook you've probably been seeing lots of pictures...cameras were everywhere! I'm grateful for that, because I get so caught up in the moment I forget to grab mine!

Being so exhausted is a no go for the Mojo, but I still wanted to play this week's Banana Split Sunday challenge, which is to include hearts somewhere in the design. I had several scraps of Sugar Rush on my table (along with a huge heap of other stuff that I left in a CHA hurry), so I started there...the set I used for last week's challenge (Gunther's Greetings) includes a little heart, so I stamped several and cut them out to make a bouquet to add to the design of the printed paper. I added a few little dots with a white gel pen just for fun. The sentiment, perfect with these elements, is from the 2RB set, Quotes. For a romantic finish I added a big red bow embellished with buttons, including another heart.

Be sure to check out the Banana Blog for more inspiration! I hope to see you again soon!
