October 2015 Challenge 30 by Heather McMahon
A Colourful & Happy Mood Board

Welcome back scrapping friends! It's October which means 
a brand new challenge at Scrap Around the World!! 
We really hope you'll join us this month!!!

With 7 hours left to go we are on 125 entries this month.
THANK YOU so much to everyone who supports our work here!
We are so glad to have you playing along with us & love to inspire,
see your gorgeous works & encourage & reward you.

Just a couple of points about PRIZES & COMMENTS...
Our very efficient sponsor assistant is Nicole Doiron
& she is the lady to contact in the VERY UNLIKELY EVENT
that you DO NOT receive your prize!  You can email her at
nicutopia {at} hotmail {dot} com, together with the month,
prize you won & sponsor it was from.  If she has ALL THESE
DETAILS she can liaise with the sponsor & find out where your
prize has got to BUT ONLY AFTER 6 WEEKS  as prizes do
sometimes take a while to reach international destinations.  

With regards to COMMENTS - we  changed our policy a few
 months ago & announced that we {usually} WILL NOT BE
 LAST 48 HOURS.  This is because, by that point, we have
 moved on to begin the arduous process of reviewing
 all the entries to begin the judging process.  

The only exception to this would be in the sad event that we
 ever receive less than 120 entries.  In this case we comment
 until the very end!  Okay!!  Let's get on with the show!!!  

We begin by welcoming a very special lady to join us for
 the next 3 months {as sadly one of our designers has
 left us earlier than expected}  PLEASE WELCOME......

 "Hi everyone!  My name is  Nupur Patel & I am 24 years old & from 
Mumbai, India. I have been scrapbooking for 4 years. I studied
 Visual Arts & Graphic Design & love to explore colour in my 
creations, & play with mixed media. I love capturing memories, 
travelling & meeting new people.  I have a blog HERE & would 
love for you to visit!  I also have a Facebook Page you are most 
welcome to join HERE.  You can follow me on Pinterest HERE
& Instagram HERE.  I am so excited to be joining the team here
at Scrap Around The World - thank you Helen for inviting me!"

Oooooh just look at this delightful mood board, designed by 
Heather McMahon, so HAPPY & COLOURFUL!  As you can see
 it's a riot of shape & colour with a Fall/Autumn/Thankful theme.  

There are SO MANY WAYS you can be inspired!  You could choose 
the beautiful theme of GRATITUDE, the watercolour look, the fancy
 fonts/calligraphy, the wonderful Fall leaf shapes, the strong colour 
combinations, the feathers, bubbles, string-work, hearts, 
stars or simply... the overall feeling of PURE JOY!!
As usual it is TOTALLY UP TO YOU!!!

Here is Heather to tell us a little about herself...

"Hi there! I'm Heather McMahon & I'm thrilled to be the mood board designer
this month. I live in Australia with my husband & 2 teenage kids.  I was 
introduced to scrapbooking 15 years ago & was immediately addicted. 
My children were young when I started, so finding scrapping time was hard,
 but now they've grown up I have much more time to explore & create!

I love to experiment with different styles & believe in versatility when creating.
I am inspired by colour & strive for my projects to reflect the mood of my
 photos. I love to connect with people online!  You can find my
 Blog hereFacebook herePinterest here & Instagram here. 
I would love for you to visit!"
