Hello around welcome to my first post for May and it's an exciting announcement about a brand new Scrappy Challenge called
Helen Tilbury from South Africa has put together an amazingly talented group of scrapbookers to form the Design Team and I feel very humbled to be among them. Thank you Helen.
Here's some of what Helen has to say about this exciting new scrappy challenge.
"We are a group of 14 women from all around the globe, of different ages, cultures & circumstances, united by our love of scrapbooking! It is a universal language that we all understand!!
That's why I chose the name 'Scrap Around the World', because, literally, that is what we are all doing :)
Will you join us on our journey every month? I do hope so!
We are on the look out for players to take part in our challenges & make it a roaring success & followers to support us & encourage sponsorship so please join our blog & follow us officially!"
May 2013 Challenge 1
Each month we will present you with a mood board & a sketch, together with a mood board/sketch combo image for you to save to your computer & upload to your blog when taking part in our challenges.
This month we have Agnieszka Bellaidea to thank for this gorgeous mood board!
All you need to do is be inspired by the mood board (in ANY way)
& use our sketch as your starting point.

You also need to mention that you are playing along with the current challenge at Scrap Around The World & link up to it please :)
So, this is my DT layout for our first Challenge.
I stuck fairly closely to the sketch as you can see.
Using the 'Basecoat' range from Kaisercraft, I distressed and inked my base with water, distress inks
and texture stamps.
I found the rusted orange tone appealing on this gorgeous mood board.
The lace table cloth and lattice work of the doors in the mood board inspired the lace-type stencil work behind my photos & cluster.
If you're an Aussie Rules fan I'm sure you're familiar with my title and heard it sung by Mike Brady, in a certain song about VFL legend Roy Cazaly.
Loving my flair buttons at the moment this one is by 'Finding Nana' and the other I used on this layout
is from 'A Flair for Buttons'
