Petallo and Xyron Blog Hop Week

Hi peeps 
If you've visited the G45 blog this week you'll know we have a fall themed blog hop running. We all received some of the fabulous products from  Petallo and Xyron in our last DT boxes and have been beavering away on Fall themed home decor projects using flowers, adhesives and Graphic 45 papers.  Click the links above to go over to Petallo and Xron web sites and then just click the blog link to see the projects that have been showcased so far this week.  There's one more day of crafty creativeness tomorrow too. 

My project is an altered MDF chocolate basket from Pink Tulip Creations decorated with papers from Happy Hauntings collection (2012 release) by Graphic 45.  The flowers are from the Darjeeling collection and these and the leaves are all by Petallo.  The project is held together with Xyron adhesives although you can't see them they are doing a great job holing everything together. There are more pics and supply list for my chocolate basket over on the blogs linked above. 

To celebrate this week Graphic 45 are giving away some amazing prizes this week to celebrate this blog hop. 
Here s the blog prize:
