New Studio J Layouts

These are some of the Studio J layouts that I've done recently. With the Studio J membership comes some "members only" layout options. I hadn't had a chance to play with it until the other day, and decided to do more of our Mediterranean Cruise photos. I think I have to face the fact that I'll never get the 1000 or more pictures scrapped traditionally. The Studio J layouts look so much like regular, traditional scrap pages. One needs to remove the layouts from the page protectors to know they aren't done with paper!

If you have any questions about Studio J, or would like more information, just shoot me an email.
