Friday's Challenge!

This weeks challenge comes from KI Memories, and will be a fun one for you to work on this weekend!

Challenge:Quote them
Do you know someone who always says a funny quote, or word? Does your child seem like they have their own language sometimes? For me that is my son Noah. When he was three he said the funniest things. I made this layout so that I could remember those precious words. My challenge to you, is for you to make a layout that quotes the words or phrases that reminds you of that person. It can be silly or not so silly.
