We have a photo booth at CHA! Our photo booth was fun for everyone but this cute little guy! He doesn't love hats as much as the Graphic 45 staff!
And now it's time for some crafts! First up is this breathtaking Secret Garden card by Tara Orr. This card combines some beautiful paper layering, paper distressing and fussy cutting techniques that give it a dazzlingly unique look. Tara also used the Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Key Hole Staples to add even more elegance to this card. What a fun and joyful creation that's perfect for any occasion!
