Debbie Hodge embellished a page of teens in a fun pose with a fox since it not only plays up the “clever” title but also the woodsy setting.

    I like the idea that the fox is the new owl….too bad it isn’t the coyote because I have lots of those!

    The layout by Meghann with the tone on tone mint was a bit of an inspiration to me…I’m looking thru my stash for what I have that can be “mint on mint”!
