Call it cliche, but there are no other words to describe Beauty and the Beast but magical and enchanting. Beauty and the Beast flaunts the classic tale of unconditional love and kindness. Belle (Hilary Maiberger) who falls in love with the Beast (Darick Pead), in spite of his physical appearance, period. The characters know how to inject vitality in their designated dialogues, Disney has done yet another fantastic job casting, choosing and moulding this US cast. The bookish and brave Belle (Hilary Maiberger), her voice is freakin’ crystal clear, not a moment that I flinched and had a tough time trying to figure out the words coming out from her mouth.

There is not a week goes by when I don't make something with their beautiful collections, creating bold statement pieces by combining contrasting coloured papers with fussy cut images. I hope you enjoy looking at my projects as much as I have enjoyed making them. I found this 18 inch tall dresser in a charity shop and set about altering it. Each shelf is the perfect height to store my Stickles, Liquid Pearls, stacks of Distress Inks and Alcohol Inks. Each pocket page allows me to list the colours of inks, or glitters I already have, as well as photo examples of items I have made with the products. I plan to make a 'mini' mini album to fit inside to store some pictures of our days out. Girl, you are beyond AMAZING, you totally blew me away with this post, your projects are stunning beyond compare and feature the Graphic 45 products so wonderfully. You are a natural fit for the Graphic 45 DT. I know how much you love G45, I've been following you since Ning. From a young age I've always loved making things whether it be from my own imagination or 'upgrading' Blue Peter creations. As I've got older I've enjoyed capturing different events in my life through scrapbooking as well as making cards and.
John Kristensen doesn’t possess a cell phone. Kristensen no longer possesses a car. Kristensen does have is a letterpress printing shop named Firefly in Boston, where a space filled by mechanical sounds when they are working, the ink smells and huge machines he acquired 30 years ago. Kristensen took the bus from Summerville to his shop where he describes as “noisy with artists. “You can tell I overly fond the sound of my own voice,” he , walking ahead and smiling. Whether it was done out of kindness helping a young journalist, or was out of his own ardency for his machines, Mr. Kristensen introduced every machine in the shop, when sometimes his hands would touch them while talking. “It is a text in every letter in its own piece of metal,” he said, slightly touched the well-set typeface on the set. In one decade there was no printing, and the next decade there was. Johannes Gutennerg, who invented the technology, would be pleased seeing the way he talked about his invention. It felt like seeing a time machine, and the pilot was a man who had silver hair and beard, and wore a taupe shirt and trousers with.
