May 2014 Challenge 13 - A Celebratory Mood Board by Helen Tilbury - Happy Birthday to SATW! EPIC ANNIVERSARY EVENT COMPETITION!!






Hello & Welcome to another awesome month at Scrap Around The World!
Can you believe we have already hosted ONE YEAR's worth of challenges?
Definitely something worth CELEBRATING don'tchya think!

It's been quite a ride & not without it's hitches & glitches but we are doing our best
 to hang in here for the long haul!  Inspiring YOU is such a fulfilling & rewarding task
 & we have seen our entries rise not only in numbers but also in standard, which
 means success in our eyes!  Our vision is not only to provide fun challenges but
also great incentives for you to improve your work by learning new skills & offering
so many exposure opportunities.

Without our community - ie YOU & your friends!  we wouldn't be doing what we do
 here & having so much darn fun doing it - so THANK YOU!  Please keep supporting
 & encouraging us & LET US KNOW if we make a mistake or do something wrong
in your opinion - as long as you are nice about it we don't mind!  We are learning &
growing as we go along & every month offers up something new for us too!!

-------------------------------------------

OVER $ 1 000 WORTH OF PRIZES TO BE WON THIS MONTH
 BUT YOU NEED TO FOLLOW OUR SPECIAL 

EPIC COMPETITION RULES 

SO PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

This month things are going to work a little differently BECAUSE it's competition time! 
 Yes I know that EVERY month we host a challenge here but this month it is EPIC!!

We are looking for our 2014 EPIC WINNERS - ie the TOP TEN PLAYERS for our
first year (May 2013 - April 2014) SO we will be choosing 10 WINNERS as per usual
(plus ONE RANDOM WINNER as always!) BUT here is the difference...

VERY IMPORTANT!  PLEASE READ BEFORE ENTERING!!

1.  We have TEN HUGE prizes (each valued at approximately $100 US!!) 
for TEN WINNERS!  We will not be grading your entries from 1 to 10 this month.
Rather, we have invited TEN GUEST JUDGES to each select one winner,
based on the entry that they find the most suitable, relevant & appealing.
They will be sending their selected winner's name to me, along with a few
 sentences explaining what they really loved about their winning entry.

2.  9 out of 10 of our prizes will be awarded to PAST WOFFERS!  
Woffers are Winners, Features & Finalists, in other words our
 TOP TEN ENTRIES  from the last 12 months!!  This is so that
we are able to determine who are true TOP 10 PLAYERS
 for our First Year are!! So this is like THE FINALS!!

3.  ONE prize will be open to a NEW winner - someone NEVER
featured on our Wall of Fame {WOF} in the past - so there is still
incentive for EVERYONE to enter as one prize is open to anyone
who wins on MERIT & one prize (of $50 value) is open to one
random winner.{as usual but this month even the random
prize is a big one - woot!!}

****************************************
4.  For your entry to be eligible you need to write 
WOF or NEW after your name WHEN YOU LINK UP - ie:-

*****************************************

YOU NEED TO ADD "WOF" OR "NEW" AFTER
 YOUR NAME ON THE LINKY THIS MONTH!!

(if you've been featured at SATW before & forget
to write WOF, or don't state WOF or NEW you will
automatically be put into the NEW category, for 
which there is only one prize, as opposed to nine!

Instead of writing - Julia Roberts - USA
you should now write - Julia Roberts - USA - WOF
 (if you have been a winner, feature or finalist before 
& have therefore featured in our Wall of Fame in the past)

OR - if you have never been a winner, feature or finalist before,
you need to write - Julia Roberts - USA - NEW {for example!}

Got it?!  If you forget & cannot delete your entry then please
load it again.  Only entries with WOF or NEW after the name
& country will be eligible for any prizes - THANK YOU!!


I am your challenge host this month!  Mood board compiled by moi :)


Challenge THIRTEEN hosted by Helen Tilbury, South Africa.

------------------------------------

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:-

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,
unless it is absolutely obvious & no explanation is required.
{better to be safe & write a line or two explaining your inspiration}

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.
