September 2015 challenge 29 by Lydie Denis aka Lilibleu
A Retro & Poetic Mood Board
Plus please welcome another new SATW Ambassador

Welcome back scrapping friends!

It's September which means a brand new challenge at Scrap Around the World!  
We really hope you'll join us his month!  Things were a little slow this month, 
but that is to be expected, what with the sun shining in the Northern Hemisphere, 
many of you were out & about vacationing around the world!!  As I write this, with less than 12 hours to go until closing time now, we are sitting on 115 entries!!  Woot Woot!!  Not bad for one of the quietest months of the year online.

A quick note about COMMENTING!  
While of course we LOVE seeing all your entries rolling in & realise how very
important it is to provide support & encouragement to all our players, we have
decided recently not to comment in the last 48 hours or on any entries over
120 {whichever comes first} BECAUSE by that stage we are busy studying
your amazing works & working out our favourites, all ready for voting!!

So please understand & forgive us ♥
If comments are really important to you, please 
remember to get your entry in early enough :)

Now let's talk about this BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL BOARD!!  
Only the French have the natural great style to create 
something so gorgeously understated!

This mood board is resolutely old-fashioned, evoking childhood memories of much
 loved & well read novels, faded pages, dusty books, ink spots & school stationery 
boxes.  Along with old wood & weathered & worn pastel colours, this board invites
you to take a step back in time, be nostalgic, write love letters, share your favourite
lyrics, show off your calligraphy skills or enjoy a little doodle!!   Think neutral colours,
soft pinks, blues & browns, simple lines, clean shapes, all with a touch of the
shabby, distressed look too of course!  Do with it what you will!!  Just remember
to tell us how you were inspired! {unless it is very obvious of course!}

Here is Lydie Denis, aka Lilibleu, the designer of this
 month's mood board, to tell us a little about herself...

"Hello everybody! My name is Lydie Denis, aka Lilibleu. I’m 43, married 
& a mother of 2 boys, aged 8 & 6. I live in the South of France, in a lovely,
sunny region I love, named Provence.  Together with my husband, 
we run our own e-shop, called Ysandel, selling fantasy jewellery.

I discovered scrapbooking during early 2009, after my second son was

 born.  Now it's a real part of my everyday life!  My kids, daily life & the
beauty of nature are the main sources of my inspiration.  I love to give
 volume & interest to my creations using inks, modelling pastes & flowers.

You can take a tour into my colourful world through my blog 
as well as on my Facebook page.  I look forward to your visit!"
