For every Nine "No"s, There Is a "Yes!"

I rushed for my camera when I saw her sitting there on the couch with her arms crossed. With no time to zoom in or adjust any camera settings, I snapped as quickly as I could and only got a couple of not-so-great shots.  I cropped out most of the scene and only left her on the couch and printed the photo as a 4x6.  This was real life, and a not so happy one at that moment! This page was created with Work in Progress Kits' June Kit, which is still available and you can find it here.

Since I'm on the topic of how one really feels, I am grateful for a new opportunity with Sweet Peach Crop Shop.  Ever since I discovered this kit club via a free shipping sale last December, I've been following its every move. It feels amazing to have earned this wonderful opportunity.  I look forward to working with the rest of the design team, making new friends and re-acquainting with established ones :)
