Knock Me Over With a Feather!

Last night before I went to bed I checked in with the Graphic 45 Blog and this is what I read:


Drumroll, Please..............
WOW! That is all that we can say.....the tremendous amount of talent that is in this industry is very humbling. We loved reading your bio's and the reasons why you scrapbook; where you are from and visiting your blogs and learning about your families. Then there is the beautiful layouts, altered projects and a few other fun items thrown in... this has been an amazing journey for our entire team!
Thank you to everyone who applied to be on the Graphic45 design team, we so appreciate the time, hard work and heart that goes into it.
