Graphic 45 Design Team 2014 Audition

I've been waiting a year for this post - and now is the time!  Graphic 45 is having their Design Team call, and you know, I love, love, love my G45, so of course I am throwing my hat in the ring.  This company is known for taking vintage imagery and rocking it in the most creative and contemporary ways.  When I was introduced to this line (years ago) - it was love at first site and I have been over the moon for every collection since then.   So I hope you enjoy this rather long post, that will highlight  some of my favorite Graphic 45 projects to date.  It's a mix of cards, layouts, up-cycles and beyond the page projects.  Just a sampling of what can be created with these gorgeous papers and accessories. So here it is,my Graphic 45 Design Team 2014 Audition. Good luck to all of those that apply!
