Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

It seems like yesterday that I applied for the Graphic 45 DT hoping with everything crossed that I would make it to the next round - simply so I could do the best I could and post it to them to show them! I was so very proud of myself that I did make it to the next round and secretly hoped and hoped that I would see my name up there when the time came. I did try to talk myself out of it - looking at the list of names I was sure that was going to be as far as I made it. Off to Bali we went on a special family holiday to celebrate hubby's birthday... won't say how old hehe! And it was also my youngest daughters birthday too whilst over - on 2nd April....... Being on the other side of the world to the Graphic 45 headquarters means that I didn't get the news until the morning of Chionia's birthday - we had woken up in the hotel room - I had booted up the laptop and connected to the internet (which in Bali was slow rofl!) and watched while Chionia opened her present - Hubby asked if I knew and my reply was no - not sure if I did want to look - my eldest daughter then said well I will then to which I replied no I will and did and couldn't believe what I read - there was my name... and I sat there in stunned silence watching birthday girl playing with her toys and then getting ready for a day at Waterbom park all whilst thinking OMG I did it.....

Now I am at that point again!! I really can't believe how quickly this last year has gone - whilst the year had it's ups and down's my highlight every month was creating for Graphic 45 - I truly have loved every single minute of being on this fantastic team....I don't want it to end rofl!! So a bit of ground hog day for me but here is a selection of some of my favourite pieces I have created over the last year for Graphic 45 - I hope you enjoy them and cross everything for me - I so want to do it all again :) I also want to thank every one of the Graphic 45 fans - your support and kind comments over the year have been unbelievable!! I still pinch myself reading some of the kind things that are written about projects I have done. Also to Graphic 45 themselves - Diane, Charee (Our DT coordinator extroadinaire!), Aimee and everyone :) You truly are not only wonderful people but so professional and bliss to work for :)

OK - My projects in no particular order!! I think I may just have more than 6 I can't narrow it down rofl!

One of my favourite LO's - this was actually my round 2 LO for the DT last year and still love it as much now as I did then!

Love using G45 Staples :)They are a bit hard to get over here so love the fact we get them in our kit!

Me @ 37 - true to my style lots of things to look at and interactive :)

and a special proud mummy moment....

And those of you who know me well know that I LOVE OTP and home decor projects so here are a few :)

PS and a big thankyou to Deb Godley who painted the faces on my clown family! Clothes have been stamped with G45 stamps too!!

A christmas Home decor piece - have orders for friends for this one!

Ok what next...... My Art supply cupboard and Steam punk paint holder .... love altering things I find at swap meets and garage sales!!

Altered Canvases are another OTP project I love doing - combine it with some texture paste and you have some good fun!

and two more just for good measure - another Christmas wall hanging and a clock

Good luck to everyone applying and/or Reapplying!! I am going to leave you with a sneak peak of an upcoming DT project......

Tag you're it!!!!!!

More wonderful projects on the Graphic 45 blog this week with our "special"assignment for the 2012 Winter CHA - each CHA the DT are given a special assignment to do that Diane has specifically requested to keep in theme with the Graphic 45 booth. This time round we had to create a tag using packaging from Graphic 45 staples!! :) This was good fun - time to play and experiment - in my case with the flowers - I initially created the flower for another LO but didn't like how bulky it was on the LO (Yes you heard me - too bulky for my LO! rofl!) so I cut it in half and recreated several smaller flowers instead!! Voila!! Had to use Olde Curiosity Shoppe - one of my fav ranges!!!!!!! :)

Also I would love it if you could pop over to my FB Album and tell me your favourite projects I have created over the last year for Graphic 45!! Just leave a comment under the one's you like the best! Thanks :) :P

Hubby stars again.....

hehe - I find I tend to scrap my girls more often than not so it is a bit surprising that quite a few of my layouts for CHA were of hubby! As a scrapper it is important to remember to scrap all things important to your life and not just your kids :) I managed to fluke this photo - if you look carefully enough the reflection in hubby's sunnies are of our girls - we were at Mullaloo beach at sunset and I love this photo therefore made it sit centrally on my page - I also love Louise Nelson's work and was inspired to try a bit of her style with this LO!! Love this new range of papers too by Graphic 45 - Olde Curiosity Shoppe

:) Check out today's post with Nancy and Tara too - simply beautiful LO's of theirs!!

Also time is running out for you to submit your DT application into G45 - I still have mine to pop in yet - I need some help!!! Please tell me your favourites pieces I have done over the last year by looking back through my posts!! would love to know what you all like or love of mine!! Please leave a comment on THIS post and this time next week I will draw a little RAK to send out to someone who leaves a comment!! Ta! Happy scrapping all :)
