Bird Is The Word - Dream

This fortnight over at Bird Is The Word the wonderful Helen Tilbury has volunteered to post our challenge, as Wendy Otterness, the owner of BITW & our sponsor, Tidbitz in Time Kits, is due to give birth to a baby boy tomorrow!!  So very excited for you Wendy!!

Our new word for this fortnight is DREAM.
Of course DREAMS, DREAMED and DREAMING are also acceptable!

What you are required to do for this challenge is to create a layout, card or off-the-page/altered art project using the word DREAM {or other examples mentioned above}.

There is also a fabulous sketch to inspire you designed by Nadia Cannizzo if you choose to use it.  Use of this sketch is not a requirement for the challenge.  

You have 4 weeks to complete your project & load it in our sidebar using the Inlinkz tool under the correct word DREAM.  You also have 2 weeks left to enter into our previous fortnights challenge with the word TODAY.

At the end of the challenge our Design Team will vote for their top 5 layouts & the winner & 4 featured projects will be displayed on the BITW blog site, together with links to their respective blogs.

The winner will receive a complete Tidbitz in Time kit of their choice, posted anywhere in the world, while the winner & 4 finalists will all be entitled to display a "Bird is the Word - Featured Winner" badge on their blogs, that will be supplied here when the winners are announced.

Believe In Your Dreams
Here is my example for this fortnights challenge.  I decided to use Nadia's sketch with some Websters pp's, a beautiful chipboard clock from Scrapmatts and a touch of lace.  

The winner for the HOPE challenge will be announced one day this week.  Can't wait to see all your beautiful entries in our gallery... it gets more and more difficult every fortnight to choose our winners as the talent is absolutely amazing!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love.
