May Workshop thanks and finished layouts!

Huge thanks to everyone who came along to our May Workshop at the Whitehall Parish Centre, Dublin last Thursday 26th May.  It was another full house and everyone’s completed layouts were absolutely stunning. 

This month we created two layouts using the new Pink Paislee Hometown Summer Collection of papers, chipboard and alphabets.  We chose to use photos of Summertime in the garden with the kids  for the demo layout, but on the night everyone chose their own theme and title.  Here are photos of the completed layouts:
