a good mail day and the bracelet...

Actually, it was more like a GREAT mail day.

Look what I got from
GRAPHIC 45...



All these awesome papers...YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!

Here's a closeup of my favorites...



THANK YOU so much...Graphic 45... these will be perfect for my new Maya Road projects...
*
Oh wait...I already used them on a CHA project here...
*
Check around the net for photos of the Graphic 45 CHA booth. It was absolutely breathtaking.
They had an old phone booth...yep...full sized.
You'll be amazed...
*
But...
*
My most favorite piece was an OLD telephone covered with G45 paper...I about fainted!!
Talk about cool...lucky for them I'm honest...
I wanted it REALLY bad.........
***
OK...here's the scoop on the bracelet that lots of you noticed on the Ranger video...from yesterday.
*
But first the bracelet story...it was FATE!
*
A friend overheard me talking @ CHA and whispered this in my ear...
*
"DON'T SETTLE FOR LESS".
*
Then...
A few hours later we walked into a Disneyland shop and sitting right inside the door was a bracelet.
I immediately picked it up, because I LOVED the font.
*
Then I read the message...
I just knew it was meant for me...










FATE...for sure.........
*
Now it's time to decide which of those cool papers fit which Maya Road book...
ah.......decisions............
*
and then it's time to...
Make ART!

I LOVE Graphic 45 & yes...there booth was AWESOME. We went back there 4 or 5 times at CHA! (passing you & Tim on the way each time of course!) :o)
I can't wait to see what you do with all the new papers.
That bracelet is so cute & I must have one myself. What makes your story more interesting for me is...what an odd item to find at Disneyland of all places. It truly was meant to be for you to have it...and believe it!

I have all but the Winter release. They are awesom beyond belief. I play there all the time in hopes of winning more. AND for those who did not know it's time to try for their DT again.
