Graphic 45 papers make my albums look AMAZING (not trying to toot my own horn!! But I always finish the album and find myself saying “Okay I am going to KEEP this one for myself!” it as not happened yet and the look on my friend’s face is all worth it.)

I would love to recieve either one of these collections as I haven’t not bought either one of these yet. :) Thanks for the chance to win one!!
