It's been an awesome week so far. The Design Team members showcased have really set the bar high and it is hard to it could get any better, but I know it always does with Graphic 45. Add in May Arts ribbon and is there any doubt! I can't wait to see what is in store for tomorrow. I absolutely LOVED Clare's memory box and keepsake album. The banner on Kristin's blog was wonderful and I've never seen or heard of such a unique tunnel book and was absolutely delighted with Sharon's project! Thanks too, for the bonus of Arlene's card and shadow box projects. They were just the inspiration I needed today to do a birthday card!

Wonderful blog hop! So loving Graphic 45 and May Arts! Such awesome creativity!

Wow, more great projects!!! Each and every one is fabulous!!!

All of the projects have been great. I'm getting a lot of good ideas for projects. Even fell in love with the kraft paper which I had been avoiding. The ribbons work so well with the paper. It's like you design together.
