November 2014 Challenge 19
A Rich, Vintage Mood Board by Zuzia Bodakowska

Hi everyone! 
Today we are presenting challenge number 19. Can you believe this? 
Zuzia prepared a mysterious moodboard with a vintage, country touch. 
There are so many ways you can get inspired - the music note paper, 
rough twine, flowers, rich colours, bicycles, sunflare, lace & doilies,
woodgrain & script fonts.  The choice is up to you
. We hope to see many glamorous works this month!


"Hello!  My name is Zuzia Bodakowska, although online I go by Zuziucha.
 I am a happy mom to 2 girls - 8 year old Julia & 2 year old Lili & they are the
 reason for my scrapbooking adventure!   I create mainly layouts & mini-albums. 

My albums are usually very neat but my layouts are quite messy with a bit 
of mixed media & lots of flowers & embellishments, making them very feminine.
I love travelling & visiting new places but I also love my home & spending time
 there.I dream of a big garden where I can grown all my own fruit & vegetables
 as I am crazy about healthy eating!  If you wish to see more of my work please 
visit me at I would love that ♥


As usual we have 5 wonderful merit-based prizes for you this month
 & one random prize which can be won by ANYONE ANYWHERE. 
All our prizes always include international shipping!

Not only that, but we also offer a Guest Designer Position to our
winner each month too, which comes with plenty of exposure
in your own special post as well as an exclusive badge.

Please remember that in order to be eligible for our random prize each 
month you do need to share your project on our Facebook Wall.

You only need to be inspired by ONE image but can be inspired by
 more than one or even ALL the images - it really is UP TO YOU!!

We are NOT A COLOUR CHALLENGE SITE so there is no need
to follow our colours, although of course if they are your source of
inspiration you are welcome to use them all, or just some of them,
otherwise none at all!  You have complete artistic freedom BUT
we do need to be able to SEE HOW YOU WERE INSPIRED!
So please remember to tell us in your post!!

To be eligible for judging you need to follow our
 10 Golden Rules HEREwhich include:-
