Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition

Hi There!

So this time last year something AMAZING happened................ I auditioned for Graphic 45 & I made the Top 30 finalists!!!! It's time to try out again for the 2013 team. I've been busy creating some new projects for the audition, photographing, re-photographing & editing! Hopefully you like them.

I feel even more nervous than last year. Making the Top 30 gave me a tiny glimpse into what it would be like to make the DT & I can tell you now I want this SOOOOOOOOOOOOO badly LOL!

Wish me luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!






I love the elegance of A Ladies Diary Collection. It was perfect to use for my friends Wedding pictures. 




I always have a ton of Beach photos to scrap so Tropical Travelogue is one of my Fav collections. I love the contrast of the blue & green in this collection





Once Upon A Springtime is a sentimental favourite of mine. I am a huge fan of Beatrix Potter & I love the Peter Rabbit images in this collection





Another page using Tropical Travelogue. This was a DT project for Imaginarium Designs Chipboard. I love fussy cutting the flowers from this collection!




The colours in The Nutcracker Sweet collection are so rich & beautiful. The Royal Purple is a real standout for me. (I swear it was a happy coincidence and not planned that Kayla's outfit matched these papers LOL!) It's just a shame that Evie wouldn't have anything to do with poor Santa. When we asked her to sit on his knee she said No Way! Even Santa had a chuckle at her





This photo was taken at Marlo where we have a holiday van. It is such a gorgeous Beach spot. I always get lovely photos of the kids there! Using Tropical Travelogue again & fussy cutting those yummy flowers





A Card & tag set using A Christmas Past. The vintage Santa images are beautiful in this collection







This Bunting is hanging in Evie's room. I love the whimsical images in the Once Upon A Springtime collection & the peach colour is so pretty






This is a an Easel Card/Gift Box using The Nutcracker Sweet collection. The easel card is attached to to the box which has a little drawer that slides out. It is perfect for gift giving, so cute filled with candy canes or chocolates!

  6. An Xbox Live membership allows you to take benefit from
    all the contents on the Xbox website in addition to your
    gaming console. t like to spend too much on investing in code, then
    you can definitely always aim for Free Xbox codes.
    The points do come pretty fast but you do need to work to get your points.
