Graphic 45 and Petaloo Blog Hop



Hello friends! I'm so glad you have stopped by today. There's a whole lotta fun jammed into this post so be sure to read it all so you don't miss out on some extra blog candy!! Today I am joined by the amazing Graphic 45 and Petaloo designers. All of whom have made special projects just for this hop. We have joined forces to show you what wonderful projects can be made by combining these two manufacturers. It truly is a match made in craft heaven! Not only will you gain a ton of holiday inspiration throughout this hop you will also have the addition of some amazing blog candy!! So let's get started!!



This is the blog candy I am offering for the hop. It contains the same papers and some flowers that I used to create my project today. For a bonus gift there are also 2 sets of Petaloo accessories.
All you have to do be entered to win is:

1.) Become a follower of my blog.
2.) Post a comment to this post with a way for me to get a hold of you if you win.

That's it!!

Easy peasy. But that's not all!! The very generous Graphic 45 is also giving away the following blog candy. See picture below. All you have to do to be entered to win is to make a comment on all of the Design Teams blogs. Good Luck!! Winners to both prizes will be announced Monday, November 19th.


Wow, that's a lot of free stuff! Good luck to everyone. OK, so lets get on to my project. I decided to alter a mini mailbox for this hop all decked out for Christmas. I used Graphic 45's A Nutcracker Sweet Collection for the papers and Petaloo flowers. The combo is so striking don't you think?










I had so much fun decorating this project to share with you all today. I hope you are able to take away something inspirational. Don't forget about my blog candy!!

To be entered into the drawing for these amazing papers from Graphic 45's A Nutcracker Sweet Collection (the same papers used in my project) plus some fabulous Petaloo flowers and accessories, all you need to do is:

1.) Become a follower of my blog.
2.) Leave a comment on this post with a way for me to get a hold of you if you should be the winner!


The next stop on the hop today is the ever so talented Tara Orr.

Just in case you get lost along the way. Here is the entire hop list for today. Thanks for hopping on by!
