This month’s theme is titled, “Forever Friends” We are taking an in-depth look at how to use our scrapbook layouts to capture those special friendships that bring joy to our lives. Our teams have shared their ideas and all of the important friendships they had along the way. Our special feature this months is a wonderful watercolor tutorial shared by team member Irene Beumer-Zanini” Our Artisan Notebook challenge focuses on the friendship theme and our creative teams shine in these challenges: title, color, journaling, scraplift, lyrical and recipe.
