1-2-3 June challenge

The challenge this month at 1-2-3 is ..

I knew that I wanted to do this challenge but it wasn't until I was searching through my stash for something altogether different, and I stumbled across the most sublime piece of grey patterned paper (thanks Sassafras Studio Calico!) that I was hooked .. hook, line and sinker. I had a recently printed black and white photo I thought might work. I had a couple of circle ideas I'd been playing with in my head. In a round about fashion, this is what I ended up with ..

way with words

My niece Mia really does have a way with words. I mean seriously, who other than Mia would upload a photo to Facebook with the caption "sand between our toes, salt water leaking through my nose"?!!! I love her originality, her quirkiness, her determination to be who she is is. One day I'll scrap those exact sentiments, but for now, I'm happy to just have a laugh at her way with words.

If you think this challenge could be your thing, you can find all you need to know HERE. Now go get scrapping!!!   :)
