Arlene shares a fantastic "Friendship" layout and tutorial with Typography! Isn't her son just adorable? What a great way to remember special memories.

“I took this cute picture of my son Logan with his best buddy during their field trip to the zoo. These two are inseparable! It’s too cute. The bold colors in the Typography collection were perfect for this fun 8x8 page. The postage stamps, borders and cigar labels in this collection are the perfect embellishments! I also used the coordinating chipboard and stickers.” - Arlene

Gorgeous layouts.

Love the printer's tray!

Love all of these projects!

I really like the Friendship layout. I would like to make one featuring my college girlfriends. I love everything about G45.

Great layouts!

I love Graphic 45 papers and presently, am working with Mother Goose and Secret Garden for my grandchildren's projects. So, to be a recipient of your generous giveaway, would MAKE MY DAY.

Such beautiful papers in the Botanical Tea Collection! I love a tea party and sharing great times with dear friends! This collection is perfect to use in my tea photo journal I have displayed in my tea room!

Graphic 45 are my favorite papers. I've made many albums with them. They can't be beat.

I've told all my scrapbooking friends about Graphic 45 and everybody LOVES this line!

I recently found G45 and have been making tags and books, and buying lots of papers. You guys rock.
