I am being introduced on Graphic 45's Blog

It's my turn on Graphic 45's Blog and they are showing my final round projects. I made a pop up book for them along with a card and layout. The book was great fun and I loved making it. Because my last book traveled around USA, I decided to make a box for this book to go in. I used Graphic 45 staples brads for the feet and one of the door knobs for a handle. The top of the box lifts off.

I choose some of my favorite photos of my family and did a page on each of us. I used lots of Imaginarium Design chipboard. The frame on the front of the box and corners on the lid are all Imaginarium chipboard.

I thought I would show some photos of the other pages. Graphic 45 have some pages on their blog as well. The clocks and cogs are Imaginarium Designs.

I love this photo of Anna and myself taken when she was about 6 months old. I was only 22 when she was born, so I look quite young in the photo! The Frame is a new design from Imagainarium along with the butterfly.

We also had to make a card, I am not really a card maker. I leave the card making to those on the team who are superb at it like Glorious Gloria! But I had to do one as part of our final projects for Graphic 45. This is what I came up with. I love the metal staples from Graphic 45 and by using some of the papers and my Tim Holtz die I have a lovely large flower. The black Imaginarium Chipboard Frame just sets it off nicely. Make sure you check Graphic 45's blog each day as they introduce the whole team to you. It looks like being an amazing year for us all.

Thanks so much for looking and all the lovely comments.
