Congratulations to the Winner of our July Photo Challenge!

It was a very tough decision but I think you'll agree that we've picked a well-deserving winner of our July Photo Challenge on our forum

This month's Challenge was: "Have you been on holidays or are you going soon? From your holiday selection choose 3 - 5 photos which truly capture the essence of the town or country that you've visited. Capture the unusual and unique as well as landmark buildings and scenes which would be familiar to everyone." Entries had to be uploaded to Gallery and thanks to everyone who took up the Challenge. All of the photos were fantastic and of such a high standard that we had to award two runner up prizes too.

So, who's the winner ....... the multi-talented Jackie Mooney. Well done Jackie! Our July Blue Awning Kit is on it's way to you. Jackie took some fantastic photos of Dublin City and here they are:

Runner up prizes were awarded to Tracy K and Kate for their gorgeous photos of the US and Tipperary.
Details of our August Challenge "Up Close & Personal" are now on the forum.

Scrapbook Inspiration from a TV Advert!

While doing jigsaws with my kids today I could hear (surprising I could actually hear anything over the thundering rain LOL!) a TV advert running in the background. Maybe it was because I could only hear the words and couldn't see the pictures that it made me think. Just like I find I remember radio programmes for years but forget the content of TV programmes or movies a week after I've seen them. Anyway I thought the sentiment of the advert was really appealing and as a scrapbooker something I'd love to do a layout about.

It's the new Orange advert featuring Mark Beaumont who has just completed a record-breaking round-the-world cycle journey. The theme of the adverts (this is the 2nd one) is "I am" and in this ad he talks about how he has become the person he is because of everyone he's met - good or bad! It made me think ... how much do the people we meet throughout our lives shape who we are?

Take a look at the advert and if you're inspired, make a scrapbook layout titled

"I am ..."

and in it list 10 experiences (good or bad) or 10 people (good or bad!) that you feel have shaped who you are today !
