Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition . . .

Oh my, I cannot believe a year has passed since I first tried out for the Graphic 45 Design Team.  To say I've loved the past year is putting it mildly.  It was over-the-top exciting.  This is one of the best Design Teams I've ever been on.  Gorgeous papers and embellies to work with every month not to mention how kind the entire staff at G45 is to work with. Such an unbelievable treat.  In fact, the entire Team is fabulous, giving, sharing and just plain wonderful!

I'm trying out again.

I'm afraid - again.

There is so much talent out there.  Every time I look at Graphic's ning site I am inspired by what others do with these beautiful papers.

Here's some of the work I've done for Graphic's Design Team:

This altered suitcase was my final submission for last year's call. You can see more HERE.
