Jen has done another collab with the always fabulous Elegant Word Art by Bethany. She used the Graham Like the Cracker kit, Hukilau Honey to make some adorable word art.

This set includes 4 word art. Shadowed and non-shadowed for your scrapping preferences and is $2.50.

Layout of the Week!

So normally we would have a list of fabulous layouts for you to help us choose the layout of the week.

But we do not want to unfairly sway the tribal council with our choices of outstanding layouts... so we will be moving the voting for LOTW to Sunday we do not influence their decision.

I have included a shadowed and and non-shadowed version of each layout in a PSD file and a full sized JPEG file for you to build your layout on top of if you can't open PSD files.
