Life and Love Layout
By Pam Bray

"Life and love are very precious! I see this as a parent and a grandparent as I watch my own children guide and encourage their children. Sometimes paper collections just speak to the soul when you are creating, and I must confess that is what happen when I saw Graphic 45 Little Women paper collection. As individuals we grow each day...sometimes it is because of those that come in to our everyday path, sometimes it comes from our circumstances, and sometimes it is because it is just time to grow. So be brave, be of good courage, and grow with love and life." -Pam

Little Women 5x5 Mixed Media Box & Album

By Alexandra Morein


“Hello, all! We love not only making mini albums but also putting them in boxes. This has never been easier to do than with the Graphic 45 mixed media boxes, matchbook boxes, and book boxes. Pick up a collection, pick up a size of the box, and you are all set.

For my project today, I used the 5X5 mixed media kraft box and embellished it with the paper from the gorgeous new collection, Little Women. A tiny mini album (only 4.5X4.5”) is hiding inside the box. I love the combination of yellows, blues, greens, and reds in this collection, and those flower clusters are simply breathtaking!” ~Alexandra

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.
