May 2013 Challenge 1

Each month we will present you with a mood board and a sketch, together with a mood board/sketch combo image for you to save to your computer and upload to your bloga 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) 
and use our sketch as your starting point.  (more info in the challenge blog)


**** the above image MUST appear on the blog post containing your challenge entry please****

You also need to mention that you are playing along with the current challenge at Scrap Around The World and link up to it please :)


And here is my layout

'En Fin Høstdag'

I was inspired by the colours of the mood board to use this 'Fall' picture of my son.  The sketch inspired me to use an extra long photo in place of the 3 photos on the sketch.  I used some faux rust colored leather to cut my scalloped border, in keeping with the mood board & some doilies and; die-cuts to mimic the window details on the board.
