    So dang cute! I love your focal images! And thanks for the reminders that I don’t need a lot of stuff to create a page and nothing has to be perfect. As always, thank you for talking about things like balance and color contrast (making images pop using color). You always pack a ton of useful information and help in your videos. Thank you so much, Vicky!
