SONY DSCMy husband’s briefcase.  And that is a wrap folks.  This is my last theme for 2012!!  Yippee!  I did it 2 years in a row.  Now I have a little break until I start the 2013 challenge.  You can sign up and join in on the Elements Village website at in the Pixel Hangout forum.  Myself and another forum member have made the list of themes which is also posted there.  I have learned so much doing these challenges and really pushed myself out of the box.  It is wonderful fun to do and following others doing the same thing is a great support!  So neat to see others’ take on the themes.  Fantastic photographers out there!  So come join the fun!  So from now till then I will just post fun pictures.  Happy Holidays everyone!!
