"Oh lord - do I ever ADORE this collection.  Perfect combination of vintage and softness.  I altered my photo just a titch and added slight hints of pink in my daughter's cheeks, etc.  I  must have taken at least an hour to decide which papers to use for my layout - I wanted to include them all - seriously, one of my all time fave collections for sure!" -Tara Orr

Next up is these beautiful work of altered art by Nicole Eccles! This piece is so much fun and a wonderful way to add some beauty to an ordinary object! Here is what Nicole had to say about it!

"What was once just a plain black mail organizer and hat rack is now transformed into something I would LOVE to use!  Embellished with the perfect combination of G45’s elegant new A Ladies Diary and Once Upon a Springtime lines. Each line complimenting the other with soft touches of color.  I wanted to keep the organizer looking clean and fresh, yet shabby chic at the same time.  My favorite part that ties the whole thing together is the strip of ladies in their vintage hats, just where a hat can be hung!  Just another example of how Graphic 45 papers can transform ANYTHING into fabulous with just a little time and love." -Nicole Eccles

I love G45 paper! It's my favorite line. I havve some from past collections that I just haven't had the heart to cut into yet.

My heart rate jumped to aerobic rate as I salivated over the beauty of your Nutcracker Sweet Collection. Like a child waiting for Christmas, I can hardly wait to get my hands on this collection. I have multiples of every collection you've created. But this one and Steampunk Debutante are my special favorites:-)

love the mix of purple

Wow, this paper is just so beautiful. Congratulations on such a great product.

I have been a Graphic 45 person for a long time, each line is so beautiful. The "Nutcracker"line is wonderful, reminds me when I took my grand daughters to the Nutcracker the first time

Wonderful, wonderful idea
