Let’s set the record straight: Beige is not boring. Beige is classic, versatile, restful, warming and pretty. And did you know “beige” is a French word for the hue of natural wool — not washed, bleached or dyed, but natural, in all its muted, magnificent, elegant beauty?! So let’s cruise into neutral gear with this beige scrapbook layout that will make your most vibrant or meaningful memories pop right off the page. (See, we told ya beige isn’t boring!)
