Winners Winners Chicken Dinners!!
{October 2014 Winners, Features, Finalists,
Honourable Mentions & our Competition Winners!!!}








Hello again everyone!!  Well we had 101 entries last month - woohoo!!!
That is almost DOUBLE our entries last year!  Thanks so much for all your support!!

Sadly 17 of those 101 entries could not be judged because they didn't follow our rules :(
That makes us all so sad, as some of those entries may have featured on our Wall of Fame.
Please remember to check out our '10 Golden Rules' HERE, & when linking up &
REMEMBER these 5 POINTS - 

1)  Make sure your project is either a layout, art journal page or spread or a canvas.
(check the page out for minimum dimensions).
2)  Include an IMAGE OF OUR MOOD BOARD
3)  Link up to our current challenge 
4)  Mention our name in full - SCRAP AROUND THE WORLD
5)  Describe how you were inspired unless it is GLARINGLY OBVIOUS!!

Please don't jeopardise your chances by remembering the BIG FIVE!!  

PLEASE NOTE IF YOU DO NOT ADD YOUR FULL NAME & COUNTRY
 TO THE LINKY AS WE ASK THEN WE CANNOT USE YOUR FULL NAME 
UNLESS IT IS EASY TO FIND ON YOUR BLOG & WE WILL HAVE TO
 GUESS YOUR COUNTRY
 & CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF OUR GUESS IS INCORRECT :/


October 2014 Winner is Jasmine Shea from Australia!!
Jas will also be invited back as our December GUEST DESIGNER!!!


I am so delighted for Jas who has been a friend of mine for a long time & been through some tough times lately.  Plus it is one for the Aussies!!  Jas your layout was an absolute HIT with the team.  There really is nothing to be faulted on it - just PERFECT!!
