Issue 5 Get Inspired Mood Board!

Hi friends!

Have you heard the news?  Issue 4 is LIVE!  You can read it here!  We know you will enjoy it, and hope you consider submitting for the next issue!

And speaking of the next issue, Brenshevia and I have been busy (already) laying the ground work for Issue 5.  Actually, truth be told, we have to start on the next before the current issue even goes live!

We have a few new ideas for the next issue, the first of which will start with a new challenge, using this mood board!


We would love for you to link up your interpretation of this mood board.  And don't forget to share the information on your blog, so that all your friends know to play along, too!  You do not need a blog to play along.

We will be choosing several "winners" that will be published in our November 1st issue of Get Inspired Magazine!!  You have until October 1st to play along, all winners will be notified during October and a product list will be requested.

Oh and while I am here, I wanted to tell you all that we are loving what we are seeing in the User Gallery!  Don't forget to share your creations with us there, too!  You just never know, we may reach out to you for publication!

Upload your layouts to the left!

Have a great day!
