Graphic 45 "Le' Romantique"

Hi my scrappy friends! Anyone else being slammed with seasonal allergies right now? I'm in Charlotte North Carolina, and it's terrible here! I went to Target this morning to get my meds. I picked up Benadryl extra strength, plus, plus, plus. I knew it was going to make me really tired, and I had a lot to do today, so I figured I'd stop at Starbucks on my way out. $4 later, I had my non-fat cafe mocha, no whip. So I spent my morning spaced out from the Benadryl, and jacked up on caffeine, lol! Sometimes you just can't win!I wanted to show you the mini that I worked on all weekend. I love Graphic 45! I decided that from now on I will show pictures of everything I make, instead of just showing the video. I will still post a link here to the YouTube videos in case you want to see them. I'm going to do a video for this one tomorrow. I don't have 12 hours
today to download it to YouTube.
Ok, don't laugh. I know I over did it with the feathers. I'm going to trim those babies back!

I made some acrylic tags.




I love the little envelope and letter on this page, it's my favorite part of the mini!

I used another piece of acrylic to create this page. It's hard to see, but the butterfly pops up from the page.







If you got all the way down here, I'm impressed. That was a lot to look at!

Hi Tanya, That Mini is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!! You are very talented and I can not wait to see the video! I love all of the details that you put into your mini. Do you ever sell your mini's?

We here in MN, are slammed with allergies here too....we have been for weeks. We are on daily allergy medicine, otherwise we would not be surviving. Take Care.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Tonya,
I can't survive either without allergy meds. I lived in Edina MN for a while as a kid. Absolutely beautiful state! I just opened an Etsy store (link at top left of blog). I plan on selling kits for some of the albums I make, and I would also make custom albums if asked.

Awesome mini album. I live south of Charlotte about 20 miles. I would love to get together with you sometime. I think this area is a desert of LSS and Cricut information. I wish that there was a local group of Cricut people that would get together and share ideas and tips.

Hi. I discovered you video a few days ago and I have lost count of how often I have looked at it! It's the most beautiful album I have ever seen! Wish I had found out sooner as I would definitely have bought the kit. I was just wondering if you would share how you made the scalloped circle that is closed with the velcro dot. Looking forward to your next video. Thanks for sharing your creativity with the world. Greetings from Iceland.
