April Workshop

Each month I have a great time coming up with workshop ideas. Sometimes I design my own and often times I am inspired by other Demo's.   I thought it would be nice to post the workshop make & takes at the end of each month.  I know many of you save your samples and file them away to use as patterns and this way you can send out that cards you made and still have a pattern here to refer too.  You can also right click the picture and save to your computer.
