April 2014 Premier Top Pick

The April Premier videos captured everyone’s imagination and sense of humor. Barb Brookbank’s “A Little Bit of Whimsy” inspired cute critters of all shapes and sizes resulting in some really fun layouts that had us howling with laughter.

Jen White’s “Showboating Sunshine” gave rise to lots of heavenly pages, and it was from amongst those that this month’s Top Pick was selected. The layout, “He Has Risen” by smith reminded us of the reason for the Easter season and is an exquisitely designed page in every way.
