The 2011 Lenscratch Holidays! Exhibition

Happy Holidays Lenscratch readers! I wish you all wonderful celebrations, full of family, friends, frolic, and fun. Right about now I’m still in my pajamas, probably starting my first mimosa, watching my children plow through their stockings, and feeling very blessed to be part of this amazing community.

Thank you for your support, contributions and wonderful images.
