Ann-Christine has set us a difficult challenge this week, difficult because there are too many magical choices. I can’t find the photo that came to mind first, but searching reminded me of a challenge I used to love: the Phoneography Challenge, hosted by Sally at Lens and Pens by Sally. Browsing that folder, I found more magical things to share than you want to see. But here are a few.
