Missing mojo; if found, please return!

You know how sometimes a piece will just come together almost effortlessly, and everything goes right first time? Well, today has NOT been one of those days :P

This is my entry for the following challenges:
Simply Betty 12 Days of Christmas - Day 8, make a Sandy Claws project using an SBS image. Ok, I couldn't turn any of my Betty images into a Sandy Claws one, and seeing the WONDERFUL digi that's on offer as a prize made everything I tried look dreadful in comparison :P So, I gave up on actually using the guy himself, and decided to use some lyrics from the "Kidnap The Sandy Claws" song as inspiration, and hide him away in a box. Rio is plotting various nefarious schemes to bring Sandy Claws to Oogie Boogie ;)
The Pixie Cottage - sketch and/or sparkle and shime
The Play Date Cafe - colour combo of blues, purple, black and white. Most of my purple has ended up looking black, but all the glitter bits and half of her outfit are deep purple.
Aly's Sunday Challenge - be inspired by your favourite Christmas movie (Nightmare Before Christmas)
Ooh La La Creations - be inspired by a Christmas song (Kidnap the Sandy Claws)
Freshly Brewed Designs - sparkle and shine
The Character Cafe - glitter
Alphabet Challenges - G is for Glitter
Lots to Do - glitz

And this one is for the following challenges:
Crafty Emma's Store - anything but a Christmas card
Fairymoon Crafts - sketch plus white and green.
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Karber Weekly Challenge - fantasy
Creative Card Crew - anything goes
The Burtonesque Dolls - Oogie Boogie fun
Stamp Something - Digital

The images are Devil Rio by Simply Betty Stamps, Oogie Boogie by chlorene at DeviantArt, and the papers are all by me, some of them are available at Crafty Chaos Designs.

Awesome as usual even with some MIA mojo. Umm, how do I get on your Xmas card list? I love the idea of having Santa boxed up and using the lyrics as inspiration. You are so darn clever!
Nice to see your latest 12 Days creation for SBC. Can't wait to see what's next!
