Nutcracker Sweet-Graphic45

Hello Everyone,
I wanted to share an amazing scrapbook gift that I received. I love when I get handmade cards and craft items from my crafting friends. I  also appreciate time used when creating these little pieces of art. As you all know that this year I attended Scrapfest at the Mall of America.  Well I met a crafter name Christine Slak in passing while I was waiting for an elevator.We exchange information only to meet up the following week at another event. Like most crafters we are bonded in a way no one can explain. The passion and excitement is always the same. You see Christine lives in Wisconsin and I am here in California. From time to time we email and have a phone conversations. She and I love the Graphic 45 paper line. Now Christine became an instructor this year at her local scrapbook store. You can see her projects on her website:
The last conversation I had with her I had expressed the Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet shadow box that she was doing looked amazing and then I wished her much success with her class.

Well to my surprise yesterday I received a box and inside was the Nutcracker Sweet shadow box that Christine designed. The picture on her website did not do it justice. It is absolutely beautiful in person! I feel priveledge and honor to have yet another one of her projects. This 3D project has lots of wonderful elements. I L-O-V-E  it!

So to honor my friend Christine's work I thought I would share it here on my blog. Enjoy!


  1. What a talented lady. So glad we met her in the elevator!

  2. She is certainly is! She said she may have to plan a trip here. If she does we will have to all get to together.
