Anna Griffin Will Always Be A Favorite!

The first line of papers I ever invested in were from Anna Griffin. I bought the entire catalogue and I am still slowly but surely working through my stash. You might then be able to imagine my excitement when I saw these new pet themed papers and embellishments at CHA. "Where is the order form!"

The colours are so perfect. This is a card I would buy.

The sentiment "true friend" is one I use for puppies all the time.

A few of you know (and attended) the Anna Griffin Card and Scrapbook class I taught at A Scrapbookers Dream a few years ago. These were super tough classes and we enjoyed agonizing over all the measuring and folding. Anna is not easy!

Look at these paper folds! I get nervous thinking I might have to get my ruler out again.

The friends layout is so lovely.

In the close ups you can see the layering and paper folding needed to complete this layout.

There are so many samples from Anna Griffin's CHA booth that I would love to show, but these represent my favorites.

Have a wonderful Saturday and if you are time here are my crafty blogger friend's links too!
