Versatile paper collection - Zoe

I loved the Zoe paper collection as soon as I saw it.  The colors will work with so many themes and occasions.  Blue houndstooth and gray plaid for masculine pages and pink polka dots for the ladies. Here's a layout that I've created for an upcoming workshop.  I'm looking forward to using this paper on a few more projects.
