Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2012

This time last year I pressed the "Publish Post" button on my audition for the Graphic 45 Design Team audition with excitement and a bit of nervousness....okay, A LOT of nervousness! I must admit, I am feeling much the same way right now!

I was over the moon when I learned that I was chosen to be on THE best Design Team in the industry. I was also very honored and humbled. Graphic 45 is an amazing company. My opinion has not changed, it has grown. Having spent the past year working with them, I can truly say that Graphic 45 is one of the most respected and admired companies in the paper crafting world for good reason. They run their company as a family, with integrity, generosity, and a heart! I was, and am, honored to be associated with such wonderful people.

When I took on the commitment of working on the G45 Design Team, I went in with the intent of being involved for just one year. This has been such a rewarding experience and the current Design Team is so supportive and caring, I just don't want it to end, so I decided to give it another go.

So it is with excitement and hope that I once again submit some of my Graphic 45 projects for their consideration!

Thank you to Diane, Charee, Aimee and the rest of the gang at G45. It has been a blast! And I hope the journey continues.....

  25. All things happen for a reason. Maybe a 2nd year will open new doors. You are talented, you are artistic AND you are important :)

  26. You have it made, no way they could do without your very creative ideas and projects neither can I. You may have to cut your Wednesday classes to allow you time to create for G45, we would all understand. Know that when God opens a door you much continue to walk through until he shuts it.

    Love Ya,
