Top of the Mornin' G45ers,

Olga shares a personal project today, and what a gorgeous altered frame! The flower framing is just perfect.

"There is my grandmother’s spoon in the center of the frame.This spoon is 134 years. This spoon is very important for me as rewinds me about my grandmother and her house in the village. I remember the smell of roses in her garden and a little butterflies flying around it. I am going to hang up this frame on wall in the dining room." - Olga

Susan shares a floral masterpiece. We love this mini album, don't you? What a great way to remember a wonderful vacation.


"Graphic 45’s new Botanical Tea collection is such a pleasure to create with. I made this mini album using Graphic 45’s Staples Tag Album, using both the regular and large tags, and cutting them to create a layered page effect. The pages of the mini album were lined with the blue-hued pages of Botanical Tea, then layered with lots of detailed images cut from the papers and flowers of a complementary hue. This album is a work in progress, where I’ll be adding tag pages as and when I create them. That’s the beauty of having a flexible binding of simple yet elegant blue ribbons, which can be untied to accommodate more pages." - Susan

What a wonderful and creative way to display a great memory! Growing up we had a special sppon that we used to fight over....we called it "the drip-u-lator spoon". (I think it was something used for serving cranberry sauce...lot's of holes in it) Anyway, when we would get a treat of "pop" (soda) using that spoon would make the pop last a very long time. LOL (hope that made sense...) Anyway, now I know how to dispkay that memory! Thanks!

Beautiful projects! Love them and love your paper!!! Thanks for sharing your great crafting ideas.


Olga's spoon display is a wonderful work of art...so touching and a real heirloom in every sense of the word. Susan's minis are always magical. I have totally fallen in love with Botanical Tea. The gorgeous colors and images really speak to me. So glad you made it! Thanks!
