Graphic 45 introducing..............

A Ladies Diary Memory Box Clare Charvill Graphic 45
A very happy Monday to you.  If you're a Graphic 45 fan and follow their blog you'll know that they have been introducing the amazingly talented members of the 2016 design team over the past couple of weeks.  I've loved reading about everyone and seeing what they've designed with the gorgeous collections.
Today is Ambassador intro day and I'm really excited to be joining  Jim (US) and Andrew (Australia) on the G45 blog and sharing what we've been up to with our first project.  Thank you Diane, Charee, Aimee and the G45 family for this fabulous opportunity to work with you all for another year and share G45 love around the world. Huge thanks to Joanna too who writes all the amazing posts on the G45 blog. Follow the link below to head over and take a look at all the intro's and toady's Ambassador projects by Andrew, Jim and myself.
If you're a follower of mine you'll know I love making and sharing how to make vintage inspired albums/books and keepsakes and, sticking with this theme I chose A Ladies Diary collection to create a vintage themed Memory Box, Shaker Diary, Photo Box and Japanese Stab Bound album.  The subtle colours are gorgeous to work with and always remind me of my Grandma's when I work with them.
As crafters we spend a lot of time crafting for others but very rarely create something for ourselves so this one was made with me in mind lol:-)  I've  oodles of pictures that were taken before we stored everything in digital format that I love to keep and the photo box is just perfect for them. There's room for a couple of these in the box too ........ I'll be sharing how to make them with you later in the week.

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!
