Challenge: TEXTING (get it.. Call? texting?) Create an ORIGINAL project (following our rules) based on the Pop Culture Reference.... TEXTING. Keep an open mind, we like to be BLOWN away! Texting can mean literally "a text sent to my phone from yours" you can use text chat "C U L8R" or "text me" maybe you want to simply use a line of text.. or the word "TEXTING" .. just make sure your piece SOMEhow fits the challenge theme!
