“Hello everybody,


I’m still in a shabby mood so my next inspiration is all about shabby.

And who can provide the best shabby collections if not Graphic 45?!

Lady in the Flowers

By Nico Scrap


“I do love roses and that’s why I love this collection. I love them because they look so realistic when you fussy cut them. I wanted to make something different this time, and that’s why I've made a layout with a girl sitting between the roses in a huge English garden in the summertime.” ~Nico Scrap

SO many great projects in 2017, but l favorite might be the fairy project the other day. I'm just guessing, because so many times I have thought THIS IS MY FAVORITE SO FAR!

Henderson Elizabeth Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you. you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2347088404185.
