Surprise Blog Hop for Julee

Hopefully you have stopped here after visiting Toni Storie's  blog and then you already know that some of the divas and friends wanted to surprise Julee Tilman with a blog hop filled with Mojo Monday card creations and a bit of advice for the expectant parents! In about a month, their world will be quite different after the arrival of their identical twin boys...so that's why I chose the sentiment "Look out world"!  I paper pieced a pair of the delightful animals from Verve's "To the Moon" set, using papers from MME's "Dwell" pad.

So...what advice to give Mark and Julee?  My babies are 23, 25 and 28, so it's been awhile since I've dealt with that stage of life...BUT... expect your life to be turned upside down, but also expect to have all the wonders of childhood re-opened for you and to feel a greater love than ever before. Those little ones will love you unconditionally and it will fill your heart!  Don't expect everything to go by the book, because it most definitely will not!  Lastly, take time for you...take time for you and Mark together...and most of all, take a nap whenever you can! :-)

From here, you will want to visit Amber Hight, a talented diva who is guaranteed to have a gorgeous Mojo card for you!
