My first creation for the 30 Days of Creativity project was simple, but it was a busy day, what with WordCamp OC and the Mile…Mile and a Half premiere. I started with a photo that I took on our Bald Mountain hike at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park in Sonoma, applied some text reminding everyone that […]
