Help Wanted: Need My Mojo Back!

It's been a while since I posted anything.  It's been a while since I scrapped anything!  I have found myself sort of blocked...not even just blocked, but no desire to even enter the scrap room.  :(  I have been giving myself time to get back in the saddle, but I don't want to wait too long!  So, after seeing Virginia Lu's entry into the Play Date Cafe, I knew I had to enter because the colors are one of my favorite combos!  Thanks, Virginia Lu for always being an inspiration to me!  I love keeping up with your blog and it's one of the few that even when I don't have my mojo, I like to read it.

Here is my entry.  A simple alcohol ink gradient card with embossed sentiment:

I love this sentiment--got it from the $1 bin at Michael's.  I guess this is how I've been feeling lately!  My wonderful boyfriend of 6 years officially proposed to me three weeks ago with this gorgeous ring from Nodeform Weddings on Etsy.  Thanks to Konstaze at Nodeform and my wonderful man, Joe!  I love you baby, I can't wait for our wedding and our whole amazing life!!!!!!

Thanks for looking!  Have a wonderful and blessed day everyone!
