A Note from Keshet
I’m a huge fan of quotes, so when I got this challenge I immediately turned to the Sunday photos and words section of the WCS site! I was inspired by this quote about a candle and wanted to record the sentiment on my own layout. I also loved the clean simple design of the Sunday post, with a powerful photo and words to adorn it, so I modeled my design off the same concept. I even had the perfect photo already printed!

“It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” (Chinese proverb)

June Fun Fact
I have a teeny little addiction to Crumbs cupcake shops. Or really any cupcake shops for that matter. And even though I sometimes feel a bit self-conscious, I can’t enjoy a cupcake without taking a photo of it first!
