Letting you all know more about 'More Than Words'
Challenge Blog! First Challenge in January 2016!

Nicole here with you today!  Firstly, thank you Helen for giving all
 of us at 'More Than Words' the opportunity to share all the details
 about our new challenge blog here in our own special blog post!

When Helen broke the news to us that Scrap Around The World
was coming to an end we went through a mix of emotions 
couldn't bear the thought of no longer having SATW around!

It has been such an incredible source of creative inspiration 
& encouragement each month, offering the best mood boards, 
the most talented & conscientious designers & social media
 ambassadors, the most consistent postings & of course
 the most fantastic prizes & exposure opportunities!

SATW feels like a family to us all, & Helen is our mama bird,
finally pushing us out of the nest to spread our wings & fly on
 our own!  None of us, including Helen, want things to change, 
but life has got in the way, & Helen has no choice but to free
 herself up for her 2016 adventure of starting a new life overseas.

SO We have all had to accept & embrace this change as a leap
 towards bright new horizons & amazing opportunities for all of us!  
In the words of our last beautiful mood board... 

All of us at 'More Than Words' will  be forever grateful to Helen for having 
given us the opportunity to learn first hand how to successfully manage a 
challenge blog.  We have ALL learnt, including Helen, that the way to do it 
is as a TEAM!  SO 6 of us decided to create & administer a brand new 
challenge blog called 'More Than Words', & Helen couldn't be happier for us!
You have no doubt heard about this new Challenge Blog!
We have been advertising hectically on social media this month!!

MORE THAN WORDS was founded by 6 members of the SATW Admin Team, 
in an attempt to fill the gap that the closure of SATW will undoubtedly leave 
in the scrapbooking community, as well as in our hearts!




The concept behind the 'More Than Words' challenges revolves around a WORD as inspiration. We will offer 2 monthly challenges.  Joining the 6 of us at 'More Than Words' are another 8 more outstanding designers, completing our team of 14.   

The Main Challenge will offer a 'Creative Challenge' along with the WORD.
This challenge will be open to layouts, canvases & art journal pages & will 
go live on the 1st of each month.  The Mini Challenge takes place during
 the last week of each month & is for cards, tags & ATC's only!  
This challenge requires you to use a specific word on your project & to 
enter via Facebook, starting on the 23rd of each month.
