April 2014 Challenge 12 - A Light & Modern Mood Board by Riikka Kovasin!

Hi there! Another month, another challenge! And what a month March was - the beautiful light & girly moodboard inspired you to make totally gorgeous projects & our team has been gasping while going through the entries!!  Thank you all so much for participating!  It really makes our hearts flutter to see the numbers increasing each month!!! We hope that this new challenge inspires you to come up with even more spectacular projects! 

Before the challenge post just  A LITTLE REMINDER ABOUT OUR RULES - 

1)  please help us find your entry EASILY by linking up to YOUR ACTUAL POST not your entire blog.  We are on 103 entries at the moment so we have our work cut out for us!  Hunting down layouts is adding extra time in for our designers to find your work so PLEASE HELP US :-D  

2)  Please LABEL YOUR ENTRY CORRECTLY with your FULL NAME & COUNTRY.  If you don't put either it takes time to find & we may make a mistake & get it wrong, if you are featured in our Wall of Fame.  We can't change it later & it is best FOR YOU to have your name & country correct.  Please don't write the name of your layout or forget your country :-D

3)  Please click in to your entry after linking up!  Some entries are showing an error message if they are not linked correctly & this means we can't see all your hard work :(  Also, if you enable word verification we sometimes don't have time to fight our way past it so if you LOVE comments like we do, please turn it off!

4)  Lastly, it's not a "rule"as such but please consider showcasing your images as XL so they are easy to see without further clicking.  This gives your beautiful pages SO MUCH MORE IMPACT for any challenge blog, or for any of your blog followers to view & saves extra clicking - every bit helps!
