Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg said...

Hi Helen, Congratulations on such an awesome blog. Love it. It's great to see so much talent from all over the world. I have always wanted to give the challenge a go but never seem to quite make the deadline. Now in the midst of doing my entries for the Scrapbooking Masters Comp I see a beautiful mood board for which I may have something to enter. It's a album cover that could possibly be used as an art journal but I am unsure if it fits your criteria.Can you please advise if it qualify prior to me entering something that does not suit. The link to my blog is as follows

Many thanks
