Option #2...I plan to create a 4th layout for this kit as well.…  As always when I create a 4th set of layouts…we will need to add a few extra sheets of base pages of paper….at least that’s always my goal.J  So if you'd like to create this 4th layout, you can bring a long a few extra sheets of  paper (I'll tell you what colors when the RSVP's are in) OR you can always purchase them by the sheet from me too.
