Week 130: FRIEND


Hello, friends!  It's time for a new cue word and why not focus on friendship?!  You are all a big part of our lives each week, after all!  Take some time to think about what the word friend means to you!

DeNami Design is returning as our sponsor this week!  I think you'll agree their images would be perfect for this week's challenge!

This week's winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the online store!

Before you get creating, take a look at what this week's guest designer and the design team have created for inspiration!
