A few months ago I was surfing the internet and came across a display.  The person had taken an old suitcase and opened it up and made shelves inside.  She had used it to display her collection of "Snowbabies".  It did look cute.  
Above is my take on it.  I saw this old blue suitcase, the inside was in good shape and I knew I wanted to give it a try.  My husband then put up a large shelving unit for me and I placed the suitcase on it.  I just love how it turned out.
On the left is a layout of my mother sitting on the family car.  I believe she was 16 at the time.  I used the Graphic45 papers to bring out the car parts of her photo.  I just love it.  Mom was so pretty and quite a "dish".
On the right is a shadow box of my Great-Grandmother Griffin.  I found an old wooden file drawer and decorated it.  That was so much fun and I think the way it turned out fits right into the time period I am creating.
Graphic45 has given me another dimension for scrapping all the older photos my mom has given me.  Love working with it, try it!
Everything is held together, so tightly, with my Helmar adhesives.  I used the adhesive spray, craft glue, scrap dots and the tape runner.  Love, love it!
Enjoy and try something new today.
Happy scrappin'.
