Ah. I love, love, LOVE these layouts! Here’s what you need to know: It doesn’t matter if you have lousy photos if you have products you love and a story to tell. The end result will be something you’ll cherish!

    I want another piece of that orange polka dot paper, because I use the starburst side for the second page I made last night. Loved this kit!
