No! Your cluster can be any number of elements & papers. Your cluster may also include brand-new elements not featured separately in your kit.

OK, hopefully thee will be my last two questions...
1. Are we required to put our color swatch on our preview?
2. Can we resize the clusters for our preview?
Thanks for your help!

LOL there is no quota on questions. It's okay!

1. No, you can but it is not required.
2. Yes, in fact please do. With 17 elements & 3 clusters, if you do not resize it may be hard to see your beautiful papers.

I have researched the meaning of GetAway on the internet (yes, I didīt knew it too) and as far as I can see, a get away it is a very short vacation (for example, a weekend only trip), right?

Also, still about the clusters on the preview. Letīs supose I used one of my bows in a cluster: As I put the cluster on the preview, do I still need to include the ribbon on it, or the cluster already represents the ribbon?

This is going to be a great and tough round I'm sure. I love the colours of the beach, lake or water - so I KNOW I'm going to love these minis! Good luck to everyone - sending you inspiration and mojo!

I started working on this as soon as it was posted, and have been working on it constantly ever since. I have a busy week ahead and needed to get it done. Now I can sleep!

My inspiration photo is of my Dad on the beach in Southport, NC



Here is my preview, it is posted in the Gallery.

You are right!

My apologies to our non-native English speakers (I am one myself!) I should have realized "GetAway" is more slang than anything. At the very least I could have defined that in the challenge.

I am sorry guys.

So if I am reading this right, we need 17 elements, but we do not have to use just the 17 elements when we cluster, we can use unique ones that are not part of the kit? For instance, I can do a cluster around a frame and not include the frame as a kit element? In essence I can have more than 17 elements, with the extras being part of the cluster only? And gosh, I hope that makes sense.

Thank you for your generous offer. After I posted this I contacted a friend who had the perfect photo for the idea I had brewing, so I am set now. But I really appreciate your kindness.

I like to include recolored/retextured elements and papers in my clusters, so that they do not exactly match the elements of the kit ... is this OK too?

OK - I think I found a photo that I can use (scanner is down so we'll see if photographing a photograph works ...) anyway to the question.

are we limited to the colors in the photo or is the photo inspiration only?
