August 2015 Challenge 28 by Jaya Raghuvanshi
A Tranquil Traveller's Mood Board

Hello everyone!  Welcome to August & our brand new mood board!!
Isn't it fantastic!?!  And just in time for you to scrap those wonderful 
 photos from your Summer holidays or, if you are in the Southern hemisphere
 like me, get around to scrapping your holiday snaps from LAST Summer!!

Thank you so much to all of you who found the time to take part last month!! 
 As I write this 8 hours before closing we are on 135 entries!! 
Not bad for the quietest month of the year online in Europe! 
 {So many people go away on vacation to enjoy the sunshine!!} 

Just a quick note about PRIZES.  
Please let our new Sponsor Assistant, Nicole Doiron at nicutopia{at}hotmail{dot}com
know if you do not receive your prize within a reasonable time period so she can
 make some enquiries on your behalf.  We want everyone to be happy & get the prizes they won & they deserve, so let us know by emailing Nicole stating YOUR NAME, WHICH PLACE YOU WON, 

As far as I know almost all of our prizes have reached their destination, 
but there have been a few hiccups of late which we are working on rectifying.  
These are out of our control, but we have expended a lot of time & energy 
doing all we can to ensure that the few missing prizes have been sent out.  

We also welcome a brand NEW SPONSOR this month, Scrapiniec!! 
 Beautiful, laser-cut chipboard all the way from Poland, 
in romantic designs, plus a store full of related goodies & lovely flairs!

There are endless ways you can be inspired by this month's mood board.
  It has a certain vintage & nostalgic quality to it as well as a wonderful quote
 which can apply to life in general, not just to travel pages.  There are some
 awesome textures to be found - metal, sand, wood, paper, water, rust, etc.

 There is everything from deserts to beaches, city lights to retro bicycles, 
maps to packed suitcases!  This mood board is a traveller's delight!

Here is Jaya Raghuvanshi, the designer of this month's 
mood board, to tell us a little about herself...

"Hello everyone!  Jaya Raghuvanshi here from India. 
Scrapbooking for me is not just a hobby, it's my passion!!  
I began experimenting with mixed media scrapbooking last year 
& quickly became addicted! I love playing with colours, textures & different mediums.

Mixed media gives me the freedom to go wrong, make mistakes, learn & create, 
which is why I am so hooked!!  Apart from papercrafts, I also love travelling 
& photography. You can visit my Blog here, my Facebook page here,
my Pinterest gallery here & my Instagram profile here.

I can't wait to see how you interpret my moodboard!"
