New Mood Board Inspiration : We have decided to change things up a bit from our usual cupcake inspiration images. I think you will love the new Mood Boards which will provide a wider range of inspiration.

The Challenge:

Challenge : Create a project using the mood board as your inspiration.
The project can be a card, a scrapbook layout, art journal layout or off the page's totally up to you!

Here is my take on the Challenge. 
I took my inspiration from the lime & charcoal colours in the mood board.
I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut the target shaped cut file from charcoal cardstock, then backed it with wedges of some of the awesome Cocoa Vanilla 'Totally Rad' Collection papers & then added some of the coordinating Totally Rad embellies. 
Totally Rad is a great boys collection for all the boys in your life, both big & small.
