Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

I have.. giant butterflies in my stomach just writing this post out. I'm always astounded by G45 papers and embellishments.. like draw drop astonishment.. they're just gorgeous. But it's the Design Team that really makes their work seem so beautiful. And at this time, Graphic45 is having the 2012 dt audition -- so I'm throwing my name in the hat, signing up on the roster, and tap dancing across the stage! 

No Lies --- most of these G45 based projects I've been working on since the call went up! I'll show my Graphic 45 specific projects first.. and then show a few that are other companies but that I think really show what sort of a paper craft I am.
