Hello G45ers,

The sun is shining and the birds are singing on today's Graphic 45 blog! We are delighted that you've stopped by to see us! Today we are taking you on a grand tour of some incredible layouts that you're sure to love! We all have fun photos that we cherrish. Photos help give us a visual narrative for the precious moments in our lives. And is there any better way to celebrate your memories than with a beautiful layout using Graphic 45?! All of today's LOs all contain amazing photos, but the joy of these moments are truly brought to life in the exquisite LOs you're about to see. There's a fabulous Place in Time LO by Susan Lui, a French Country LO by Tara Orr and a Secret Garden LO by Arlene Cuevas! Get ready to wrap your memories in love with today's amazing layout inspiration! Lets begin with Susan Lui's Place in Time LO! Susan recently took a fabulous vacation to Venice. Here you can see how she celebrates her journey with this remarkable and colorful layout! Here is what she had to say about it!

"Here's a layout I scrapped of my family's recent holiday to Venice. The colourful houses that form the background of the photo called for a colourful layout and I found what I needed in the Place In Time collection. I selected the yellows, reds and blues in the collection to reflect the yellows, reds and blues in the houses. I went for a shabby floral look, distressing all the edges and layering the photo upon a postcard image and an air mail envelope, over some muslin. The title 'Venice' is housed inside the Graphic 45 Staples Ornate Metal Label Holder. Finally, a little cluster of Graphic 45 chipboards and flowers adorn the top right corner of the layout." -Susan Lui
