March 2014 Challenge 11 - A Pretty in Pink Mood Board by Alexandra Polyzou

Hello everyone!  GOSH can you believe it is MARCH already?!?  Crazy!!! 
 February is soooo short that March has snuck up on me by surprise!!  
Can't actually believe it is here already!!! We had such an AWESOME month 
with a RECORD number of entries!  THANK YOU!!  The ENTIRE Design Team
 at Scrap Around The World works very hard each & every month to bring you
 beautiful inspiration, not to mention prizes, etc, etc so your participation is our reward!

Without further ado, welcome to Challenge ELEVEN, hosted by Design Team member
 Alexandra Polyzou Γειά σας from Greece!  Alex is our "Wall of Fame" creator/poster
 & does an amazing job every month with it - THANK YOU ALEX!!  

Wall of Fame Manager & Greek Ambassador

She has created a really charming & pretty mood board just like herself 
for us this month.  There's no way you won't just ADORE it!


A reminder about our  DESIGN TEAM CALL - click HERE for further details.
  I am not wanting a team with dozens of people.  I know that is "de rigueur"
 at the moment but I love a manageable group of people that can get to know 
each other & feel like an integral & indispensable part of something special 
so I'm being very selective & already have my shortlist.

   Please apply SOON if you are interested as it's getting tougher by the day :)


Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like,
 using one image, several of them, all of them or even just
 one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!  

To be eligible for judging:-

1.   You need to follow our 10 Golden Rules found HERE, which include :-

1)  Sharing the mood board image.

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

3)  Mentioning 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.

This is REVEAL ONE.  We now have a MID-MONTH REVEAL 
as well - that goes LIVE on the 16th of every month with another
 full set of inspiration from more of our designers!!
