"Silver & Gold" Scrapbook Class


I just love the clean crisp lines of these Black & White layouts.. Even though this is technically Christmas Paper, I have designed it in a way to easily change it to New Year's Eve, 25th anniversary, or any black tie event. Personally I am going to be putting my trip to visit the "Snowflake" Bentley Exhibit in Jericho, Vermont on mine.
