Library Scrapbooking Project

Last month at the library we created a 2 page layout featuring the line La Vie En Rose.

For this library scrapbook project, it was wonderful to see how many patrons of the library were able to participate in the class and how much fun they had.  These pages can be used for weddings, anniversaries, valentines, family photos and many other options.  It is a wonderful way to keep your memories alive!
