Hello Crafters!

Well it's finally Friday and there is plenty to celebrate! It's been an epic two weeks of inspiration as we teamed up with the fine folks at Scrapbook Adhesives to bring you a superb blog hop! It's been a lot of fun and we want to thank everyone who joined us! Today is our final day of this fabulous blog hop and we've saved some amazing design team creations by Robin Shakoor and Melanie Forbes that you're sure to love! We also have a winner for this week's blog prize! Chosen randomly from the Graphic 45 Facebook comments this week, our winner is...Sharka Leigh! Congratulations, Sharka!

Be sure to venture on over to the Scrapbook Adhesives blog to see who won their prize too! They're also featuring some terrific crafts to inspire your Friday!

Our first phenomenal craft was created by the amazing Robin Shakoor. Behold this super clever cupcake tower decorated in The Magic of Oz! This is just perfect for Halloween party decorating! Plus, those vibrant cupcakes look pretty fantastic against the deep colors of The Magic of Oz! Robin has also made a great video tutorial to go along with it! It's a lot of fun and is guaranteed to get you excited about holiday party planning! Here is what Robin had to say about this great piece! 

"This project is just perfect for all of your upcoming holiday celebrations and Graphic 45 has the papers to help make it happen!  I used The Magic of Oz collection to create this fun cupcake tower.  This is a perfect example of ways you can make custom party decorations which will leave your guests in awe.  I have put together a video to show you the steps I took to make the tower.  Enjoy!...Robin"
