  21. What a fabulous way to play along with this challenge. Your printer's tray will be a stunning piece of art when you are finished. In this case, M could also be for Mini Marvel because that's what this is. Love the elements, the mix of text with images and 3d items. It's delightful and very inspiring.

  27. Another cute cubby hole. Are you doing them in alapbetical order or just randomly picking a space for each letter to go in ? I have 3 MA words and 3 ME words picked out from the dictionary and just can't decide which one to go for!!! Hugs Mrs A.

    1. I'm picking them randomly, and also trying to alternate the size of cubby holes for each challenge so that I am not stuck with all the hard to fill teeny tiny compartments at the end!...can't wait to see what you do with 'M' mrs A ;)
