September 2014 Challenge 17 - A Magical Mood Board by Amy Voorthuis






Hello again to you all & a very warm welcome to Challenge 17 brought to
 you by Design Team member Amy Voorthuis from The Netherlands. 

Amy loves fairies as you can see!  
Her work is always shabby & romantic so it's no surprise that her mood board
 is so fantastically feminine!  There is still plenty to be inspired from for a masculine
 take though - just thinkmetal, filigree & embossing & of course - cogs & gears!! 


As per always, we have 5 wonderful merit-based prizes for you this month
 & one random prize which can be won by ANYONE ANYWHERE. 
All our prizes always include international shipping!

Please remember that in order to be eligible for our random prize each 
month you do need to share your project on our Facebook Wall.

We have a new giveaway up on our Facebook page HERE with a lovely prize 
from Galeria Papieru, glosing on the 16th September so still time to enter!


You only need to be inspired by ONE image but can be inspired by
 more than one or even ALL the images - it really is UP TO YOU!!

We are NOT A COLOUR CHALLENGE SITE so there is no need
to follow our colours, although of course if they are your source of
inspiration you are welcome to use them all, or just some of them,
otherwise none at all!  You have complete artistic freedom BUT
we do need to be able to SEE HOW YOU WERE INSPIRED!
So please remember to tell us in your post!!


To be eligible for judging you need to follow our
 10 Golden Rules HEREwhich include:- 

1)  Sharing the mood board image in your blog post.

2)  Mentioning Scrap Around The World {in full - not just 
SATW} & LINKING BACK to our current challenge.

3)  Explaining how you were inspired by our mood board

4)  Linking back to your SATW blog post NOT YOUR ENTIRE BLOG.

----------------------------------

If receiving comments from some of our Design Team members is important
 to you please ensure that you have WORD VERIFICATION TURNED OFF.

Fantastic mood board...beautiful layouts by the DT, and such awesome prizes!! Loved playing along this month :)

Just thought I'd mention, and I'm not sure if it's just me? But I cannot see the Google Friends Connect grid that is mentioned to follow to be eligible for prizes? I am following via Blogger & Bloglovin, and would follow with this compulsory one as well, except that I can't see it...it is just blank with nothing there :-/
