I love the Fairy Tale Tower -so cute. And so many possibilities with the G45 papers. Always feel inspired when I come here.
Congrats to Judith!

As always, it's such a treat to see Nichola's enchanting projects! Love the castle tower - but the dragon's egg treasure box and the faery princess crown really knock my socks off - such wonderful and creative ideas. Brilliant! Not to mention such perfect use of the wonderful Graphic 45 products.

Brava!

Nichola is such a creative genius!! We share a passion for all things enchanting and she never fails to stun me with her gorgeous creations!!!! So many wonderful creations!!! TFS!
Congratulations Judith on winning this week's awesome prize!

These projects make me dizzy with ideas.

I have always loved Nichola's work, her garden must be full of fairies!!

I'm getting some great ideas here today - the tower the box, the crown! Thanks for the inspiration!

I love all these projects. Nichola does a great job fussy cutting, and has quite an eye for details. And- I won! I am so excited, I will be stalking the mailman until these goodies arrive. Thank you so much Diane and all of you at G45 for these great giveaways.

This has been a great week with the alumni. Thank you

Love the crown...quite unique. What an inspiring week of projects! Please bring back more alumni with their delightful projects!

Nichola is my favorite designer! I follow her blog and love her projects:)

Wow these projects are amazing! Love them every one.

That tower is incredible!

These projects are just scrumptious! Thank you for The fun Nichola.

Oh lovely projects! The tower is amazing. Sometimes I get "stuck" on the pattern of the paper. This is a great idea to get out of that train of thought and let your imagination go live!

This will be my next project for my niece!
Maybe a Christmas present for her?
Love the tutorial!!!!
