A Note from Emily
I was paired with the very talented Alexandra Sirugue-MacLeod this month and could not have been happier. I know we have totally different styles, but looking through her Flickr gallery, I decided we are actually very similar when you break down our designs. The difference? She’s much more consistent in her use of white space and layering little bits though, I do use white space and layering bits, but I’ve not mastered it as she has. I took a card by Alexandra, added a photo, switched out a few of the elements but kept most of them the same, and in less than an hour, I was done. I think I need to scraplift her more often!

June Fun Fact
My family is headed to Wales this month to explore my mom’s land of ancestry. We are bringing my parents along, I want to make my momma cry. Wales is a gorgeous country and I’m so excited to go and take lots of photos. Here are some facts and comments about our destination, thanks to and me:
•There are 641 castles. Will probably visit 5
•There are 3 National Parks. Will stay in/near two of them.
•There are 3 million people. Will report on how many we meet.
•There are 11 million sheep. Will take lots of photos.
•There are 750 miles of coastline. Will walk about 1/16 of them.
•There are 2 languages. Will only speak one of them.
•There is one very happy royal couple. Will and Kate. Probably won’t stop by to visit them.
