July 2015 Challenge 27 by Pamela Ellis
A Gloriously Optimistic Mood Board!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to a brand new month & the middle of SUMMER
 for many in the Northern Hemisphere!!  We have a wonderfully COLOURFUL
mood board for you this month!!!  Full of HOPE & POSSIBILITY!!
2 things I could do with right now - not sure about you?!?

As I type this with 5 hours still to go we are on 113 entries & I am sure we
will have a few more scooting in at the last minute too!!  THANK YOU
everyone for your continued LOVE & SUPPORT of Scrap Around The World.

We are well into our 2nd year now & I have to say it has been an incredible
journey for me so far!  I have learnt SO MUCH & it has been such a struggle
& SO REWARDING!!  Does that make sense?!  Well if you are a mother you
will know what I mean.  SATW is my baby ♥

I know many, many people are away enjoying the SUNSHINE & who wouldn't be?!
BUT if you have some supplies with you I hope you will try to enter!!  As usual
we have our wonderful sponsors all back with us for another month & prizes
are always aplenty here, not to mention a NEW DESIGN TEAM!!

Well there are plenty oldies still here but we have said goodbye to some of 
our ladies & we are welcoming in some new ones too {1/3 of our team}
So we will have an EXTRA POST here this month on the 4th, to 
officially announce our new ambassadors!  HOW EXCITING!!

FOLLOWER on our gadget above {which you can find close to the top of our
 left-hand side sidebar} in order to be ELIGIBLE TO WIN OUR PRIZES - 
INCLUDING our new FOLLOWERS' PRIZE - kindly sponsored EVERY
 month by DUSTY ATTIC who give away a $50 VOUCHER
each month to ONE LUCKY COMMENTER.  

from each month & the more you comment the more chance you have!!

Here is the lovely lady herself, with some more to say about herself.
Before she does I would just like to mention here that Pam is a very active
 & important member here at SATW.  She plays a vital role in keeping everyone
 on their toes by checking on all we do & reminding us if anyone has forgotten 
anything.  She is also our COMMENT WARRIOR & has commented on EVERY
entry since she joined the team even though she does not have to!! We ♥ you Pam!!

"Hello everyone! Pam Ellis here from Gravenhurst, Canada. Contrary to popular belief
 we have beautiful, hot & gorgeous summers here in Canada!  July is a month that brings
 vivid colours & textures to life in our country.  Flowers are in their full glory, the grass is 
green & the sun is shining!!  It's a fiesta of colour & what I had in mind whilst designing
 July's Mood Board!!   I would love it if you visit me on my blog or my facebook page.

I can't wait to see what you create!"

Letícia Schmidt said...

Amei os projetos e achei encorajador o que diz no moodboard. Criei coragem de fazer um projeto, agora tenho que aprender como postar no blog(sou iniciante) e marcar Scrap Around the World para que vocês possam ver meu projeto. Claro que não posso esquecer de dar créditos a aula on line da prof Luciana Warnowski que foi onde também me inspirou para o layout além das cores lindas do moodboard. Por falar nisso, aqui no sul do Brasil é inverno e faz frio, mas amo o verão e as cores dele!!! Beijos
