Please join us this month as we celebrate JUNE with this elegantly fresh mood board courtesy of our Finnish Designer, Veera Saarivuo.   It is full of lovely pastels, flowers & gold, but also some graphic simplicity.   
This is a perfect opportunity to start the summer (if you are on northern hemisphere) with a happy, 
cheerful project!   And if you are heading into Winter, what better way to remember the light & 
airy days gone by...Here is our mood board creator - Veera - sharing a little about herself...

"Hello! My name is Veera Saarivuo & I live in Finland, near our capital,
Helsinki, together with my husband. About 2,5 years ago I found the
 wonderful world of scrapbooking.  To me it is all about documenting 
memories together with life's little details. I find inspiration from my
 friends, family, our vacations abroad, but also from my everyday life.
 My style is clean & simple with white space combined with delicate 
details.  Find me here on my blog, instagram, YouTube or Facebook"



This is REVEAL ONE.  We now have a MID-MONTH REVEAL that goes LIVE
 on the 16th with another full set of inspiration from the other half of our team!

We do our best to support our players with comments from our team
by splitting up into comment groups to cover the large number of entries 
we receive, but we cannot guarantee comments on entries received

selection process for voting so, if comments are really important to 
you, please do not not leave your upload to the last 2 days.
