May 2014 Premier Top Pick
A fantastic variety of eclectic pages appeared in the May Premier gallery this month, making our job of choosing the best pages very difficult. In particular, the stunning layouts featuring Jen White’s Breakaway Anchors and Christina Rambo’s Slide Reel videos really took our breath away!
This month’s Top Pick goes to smith for her divine, Japanese-inspired page called Joy and Longevity. The story behind the page is beautiful, as is her delightful interpretation of the Breakaway Anchors lesson. See what smith had to say about her page here.

More Great Pages
Congratulations to our other talented digi scrappers featured below (in alphabetical order). Click on each of the thumbnails to see the gallery pages for these great layouts and images.
Note on gallery pages: To help us make your pages look their best, it would be much appreciated if they could be saved at a size of 700 x 700 pixels, and as jpegs rather than gifs.
