Graphic 45...I'm in Love! and a THANK YOU

Hey y'all...FIRST of all I want to say thank you to all the people who have left me comments.  I finally got a comment posted today on someone elses blog so maybe my blogger unable to post comments issues are over?  Let's hope so.  I still visit all of your blogs when I can and if blogger lets me...I will post a comment for you.  I know we all love the comments from our crafty friends.

OK...this is my first mini with any Graphic 45 product and I have to say that I am so impressed by the papers.  My aunt asked me for a mini after seeing the Guitar one and she told me she wanted one with Mythical creatures and immediately G45 came to mind and the Once Upon A Springtime collection.

She likes purple and green and not so much of a fan of I had to choose certain papers from the line to keep the pink to a minimum.  I think I accomplished my goal.  She loves the book.  BUT, I am just now getting to updating my blog with the photos. 

Here's the Front

If you'd like to see the rest of the's a slideshow ...the inside is so much more yummy than the front cover....  Sorry!!  Still no video camera.  I promise one day.  :-)
