Graphic 45 Midnight Masquerade Layout

Happy Monday!

Tonight I'm sharing a layout I made for Graphic 45's Creativation booth. (You can also see my layout on the G45 blog today - along with a gorgeous project by Pam Bray!)

This photo is from a trip we took to New Orleans back in 2009. My husband and I were definitely feeling the jazzy vibe ... especially him. I can't think of a better paper collection to bring this memory to life than Midnight Masquerade!



No layout is complete without some gorgeous flowers. I'm a bit biased towards anything Petaloo. These beautiful purple blooms were a Christmas present from my air trumpet-playing husband. :) 







I thought it'd be fun to add some piano keys, so I used teal and purple designs to create this musical look. 





Thanks so much for checking out my project! I hope you all have a creative week as we transition from February to March. This year is going by so fast already!

Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady Album

Hi!

Have you been watching Graphic 45's sneak peeks? Do you have a favorite yet? I do.

Don't tell anyone, but Portrait of a Lady is my favorite! I just love the color scheme and elegant imagery. It totally makes me think I'm in a Jane Austen book. Hence the inspiration for my mini album on the Graphic 45 blog today.



My husband got me Petaloo flowers for Christmas. Lucky me, the ones he picked worked perfectly for all of my Creativation projects, including this album! 


One thing you'll notice as you dive through the collection, is the lovely homage to a variety of ethnicities.














Want a chance at winning this gorgeous collection??
