Mojo Monday 225

It's Monday again and that means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch to kickstart your week!

This week we're doing a little blocking on our cards, which I always find fun, especially deciding on what I want to put in each space!  You can use whatever measurements you like to get there, but for those who don't want to do too much math on a Monday morning, here's what I did for the largest mats on my card...  four 1-1/2" x 1-5/8" panels and one 1-1/2" x 3-1/2" panel, then space evenly on a 4" x 5.25" panel and mount to a normal size card base.

To play along, just make a project using the provided sketch and upload it to your blog or online gallery. Then leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of this post.

There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but I will close the linking form on Sunday night at 8:00pm (Mountain). That way there's no confusion which linky is the current one. If you upload to online galleries, please use keyword/tag MOJO225.

For inspiration using this sketch, please visit our design team's blogs, which are the first 6 thumbnails on this week's linky list:

{Click the link above for the entry form.  Please type your name or screen name in the Caption or Title field, then choose the link and photo you'd like to enter.  Please link directly to your specific blog post with your card in it, and not your general blog url.}

Note: If  you have trouble linking, try entering the link to your card, then choosing From File instead of From Web. Then just browse to where your picture is saved on your computer to get your thumbnail. 
Sometimes it takes a moment for your picture to show up after you've used the widget. If it doesn't appear right away, click the control button + F5 to refresh the images on the page.

Hi, thanks for the sketch, had fun with it! I messed up on the cropping part of the link up. I selected crop my own photo and it just posted it as is. Now my thumbnail shows 3/4 the card, LOL. Hope I get it right next time! :) Looking forward to the next sketch, thanks ladies!

I messed up on linking my card. I just figured out what you mean to link to actual card, not just generic blog address. I want to upload the card again properly, but can't figure out if I can delete the first upload. Need help, please!

I think I did something wrong with linking up my card. The link itself is working, I just see no image here!? Hugs,Brenda

I was looking for a place to put my card but it says that My. Linky has expired and there is no entries. Not sure if I'm missing something or it's something your already working on.
