It’s time for our Mood Board challenge. (Now closed – our winner was Meredith Treloar.)
Introducing the April Mood Board which has been curated by Jot Girl Lauren Hender. Our Hi Ho Silver Mood Board features lots of greys, silver, rosy pinks and white. Just delicious.

Let’s take a look at the Jot Girls and what they created using Lauren’s Mood Board as inspiration.
Lauren says, “These moments are so precious to me. When making the final decision not to have any more babies I have decided to soak up every baby moment. My little girl at three years.”
Sheree says, “During the school holidays last year Madison spent almost every day sitting at the drum kit writing and singing her own songs. It was so fun to see her lost in her own little world of music! I love the beautiful, soft combo of the pinks and greys in this mood board and they work perfectly with black and white photos.”
I decided to play along with this Mood Board this month. I love the colour palette, although the colours I have ended up going with look more rosy in my photos – the colours are much more pink in real life. I added in a little sparkly silver in the glitter washi tape from Typo and a few scattered sequins, inspired by the silver painted sticks in the mood board. And I’ve added a black and white photo because I didn’t have that many grey elements in the layout. I love Heidi’s ColorShine and banners!
Mardi says, “Thanks for a beautiful mood board Lauren… My photo wasn’t great…but I really wanted to scrap the story….I think the beautiful colours helped to distract from the photo really well.”
Yvette says, “My sister was unpacking the car and heard a little voice behind her quietly saying the words on the layout, blowing a dandelion. So sweet.”
Amanda says, “I had forgotten how beautiful grey, white and pink looked together. I just loved the soft, dreamy feel of this mood board which seemed to work well with some recent sunset photos taken of my girls. ”
Sharmaine says, “Our youngest daughter made a weird request for her 9th birthday. She really wanted a knitted jumper for her birthday. Now I am talking a Bridget Jones Christmas scene type of knitted jumper… you know the ones with an interesting design print… something eye catching for all the wrong reasons… yep that type of thing!! So Dave and I went on the hunt to find something suitable (and not too embarrassing). We found one and it was perfect!! This page documents the present.”
Anna says, “This colour palette was perfect for some photos I wanted to get scrapped of my two little gems in their flower girl dresses for my sister’s wedding. Such a soft, girly mood board. I love it. I was able to create this layout whilst at the Escape to Create retreat – my first retreat EVER!! Loved it. My page includes product by A Piece of Cake Designs, Maggie Holmes, Heidi Swapp, and I cut the chevron pieces from a piece of patterned paper from the Glitz ‘Love You Madly’ 6×6″ paper pad. I was able to use an ACTUAL typewriter at the E2C retreat to create my journalling tidbits (I soooo want a typewriter of my own!!) and have layered together a selection of 3×4″ and 6×4″ journalling cards as my photo mat on the page. ”
