Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge #31

By Taheerah | 29th September 2014 | 7 Comments

Hey everyone!

Happy Monday! I know, I know, Mondays are tough. We all need a little tonic to help us get through the day. Luckily there’s a new challenge in town to help us do just that – the Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge!!

This is a challenge which I’ve created myself, yay me! Every Monday I will bring you a photo inspiration challenge, with images that focus on lifting us out of those Monday doldrums and all inspired to create!! I’ll be asking you to play along as well and linking up your creations! At the end of each week I’ll pick a Top 3 who’ll be my Cures For The Monday Blues and receive a special badge to add to your blog!!

This challenge is in its thirty-first installment now – woo hoo!! Thank you to everyone who has given it love and support and helped it to grow – especially the weeks where you’ve been patient with me while I’ve extended the challenges!

In case you missed this previous post, please read on for some of the recent changes made to the Challenge – including info on how to be in with a chance of becoming a Guest Designer!

Right then. Back to business, lol!

Before we get to this week’s challenge I want to once again thank all of you that submitted entries for the last challenge. I am always especially happy to see some new faces to the Challenge, as well as ‘regulars’! They were all truly beautiful entries and you did not make my life easy when choosing the winners!! I really wanted to pick you all!! Here are my Top 3 Cures For The Monday Blues:

Winners please contact me to be sent your challenge winner’s badges!

Yet again I had some absolute stunners for entries. It is seriously getting harder and harder each week to pick out only a Top 3! All of you have really been putting in some amazing designs and it makes me so happy when you play, so please keep playing along!

One final thing before we get underway! I’ve finally created a badge for the challenge for anyone who wishes to add it to their blog, you’d make me so happy! I’ve included it on my blog sidebar along with the code you need to use it, so it couldn’t be simpler! And just in case you’d like to see it here, here’s what it looks like!

Fun right?! I’d love to see some of you grab it and use it!!

So are you excited to get this week’s challenge under way?! Let’s see what’s up for this week’s inspiration:

If this room wouldn’t put you in a cheery mood upon waking then I don’t know what would!! I love the eclectic mix of patterns and colour, and all those quirky accessories dotted about the place! There’s also slightly more detail to be seen if you take a look at the Pinterest pin directly, if you need anything more to get your sparks flying!

My card for this challenge will follow shortly. Weekends frequently seem to be plagued with headaches these days so I’ve been unable to sit and craft at this point. 🙁


So now it’s your turn to cure the Monday Blues! Here’s how to participate in the challenge!

The Rules

  • Create a brand new project using the photo inspiration
  • Post on your blog or to an online photo album. Ensure you link up to this challenge post in your blog post and include the inspiration photo
  • If it is not obvious how the image inspired you then please explain your process in your post
  • Link up your creations to this post using the Inlinkz below. Please use the link to your actual post rather than the link to your blog
  • You can enter as many times as you like!
  • The deadline for linking submissions is Sunday 5th October at 11pm BST/6pm EST
So are you ready to play?! I can’t wait to see your creations!!

PS: if you would like to check out all of the previous challenge images you can see them here on my Pinterest board!

I’ll be back again soon with something new! Thanks so much for stopping by – I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way! And I would love some feedback on the challenge itself!!
