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......
