Graphic 45 & Petaloo!


Hello everyone! 

I am so happy you could join me today as I reveal my Graphic 45/Petaloo calendar project.  Graphic 45 and Petaloo have teamed up this week to show you the latest Graphic 45 collection, Tropical Travelogue and the beautiful Darjeeling flower collection from Petaloo.

Here are the links so you can easily visit each blog:

I love decorative calendars and I was extremely excited when I heard we were partnering with Petaloo to create a calendar. I decided to use a large frame originally designed to hold 6 4x6 photos.   To finish my design I used a variety of Petaloo Darjeeling flowers to embellish my frame. A May Arts ribbon, topped with a Darjeeling flower, was used to hang my photo frame on the wall. 

I used calendar stickers which were die cut, then placed on a dark brown square mat. I used Exotic Destination from the Tropical Travelogue collection as my background in each section.

Here is a close up of all the gorgeous Petaloo flowers.
