Inspiration with Graphic 45's New Bird Song Line

Hello Happy Scrappers!!
  As some of you may already know CHA just happened, where all the newest products are released into the crafting world!!  Graphic 45 was there with their amazing booth, but sadly I wasn't able to attend this year.  Their booth is always full of wonders and magic, and I feel like I have been stalking the Internet for glimpses of it all!  This year I created 10 different projects for the Graphic 45 booth, including 3 layouts using Bird Song!! 
And today I get to share with you one of those layouts!!!

Every time that Graphic 45 releases a new line, I find myself having a harder and harder time choosing favorites!  I guess you could say I just LOVE them all! 
 But this new line, WOW is truly stunning in person.  The colors are so rich and bold with some really amazing patterns that just take me away to Asia!  Also what makes this line so great is it's mix of colors.  From reds and greens to pink and light blue, this line has it all!

I absolutely LOVE the lanterns!  Once this line was in my hands, the first thing I had to do was sit and fussy cut a little pile of these lanterns.  The best part is there are SOO many different colors and styles of lanterns that they could be used for scrapping any occasion from birthdays to backyard BBQ's!!

Birds, birds and more birds!!!  This one found his place among some flowers and stopped to enjoy the view.  This line is exactly what I have been dreaming of for years!  Graphic 45 never ceases to amaze!

If you are not familiar with this little blocks, they are generally the signature of the artist. 
Though they aren't my signature, I thought they added the perfect touch!!

Absolutely LOVE the new ornate key holes.  They are so dainty and just perfect for any kind of project!

Lots and lots of videos posted from CHA, hoping to share a few things this weekend!
Here is one featuring this layout, and 2 others created by me at CHA!! 
One is green and pink, the other blue and pink..

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and taking a look at my work!
Such an exciting time of year for us all!!
Next week join in the Blog Hopping Spirit with Graphic 45/ Want 2 Scrap/ AND Art Glitter for triple the fun!!

Nicole, I'm ecstatic to FINALLY see a layout done in Bird Song! My DIL is Korean and I'm looking so forward to working with this collection for her heritage photos.

Please point me to more of the layouts in this line if you know where they are. I'm a scrapbooker only, and while the beautiful paper crafts are awesome, I only have time to keep up with my family albums. Would love to see more from this line. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.
