Chocolate Cake and Swirls

Mmmmmm...chocolate cake!! (enter drool here). This fortnight the Lollipop Ladies have these yummy chocolate cupcakes as inspiration and the added bonus is swirls.

Remember you can create anything your heart desires with these challenges. Scrapbook pages, cards, altered projects, off the page. There is no limit. It's wherever your imagination takes you.

Here's my take on those delicious cupcakes

I used Bazill card, Bo Bunny patterned paper and my cuttlebug got a workout with the divine swirls folder and fancy tags nestie. The cupcake is from Collage Press Sweet Shoppe die-cuts.

Pop past the Lollipop Ladies and check out the fabulous creations the design team have done and be inspired to enter your own.

Thanks for looking,

Sorry for the underlining. I can't seem to work out how to get rid of these lines. I have obviously pressed something as I have been typing but have no clue what. If you know what I have done please let me know.

Lollipop Ladies Challenge #8

Mmmmm...mmm... sugary sweet jellybeans!! Don't they look so yummy. I love the bright colours.
So as you can see the inspiration this fortnight is jellybeans with the added bonus challenge of gloss.

Here is my take on the above inspiration photo:

I love how the gloss came up on the jellybeans I made.
Makes them look good enough to eat.

For this fortnights challenge, I decided to go with the colours of yellow and pink mainly, as they are the ones that really stand out to me...oh and jellybeans of course.

The patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket DeLovely range and I added gloss onto the jellybeans which I just cut out of cardstock.

Head on over to The Lollipop Ladies and check out the rest of the design teams creations, they are amazing.
I look forward to seeing what you all create.

Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday.

The Stamp Spot Sketch Challenge

The Stamp Spot's new ning site has some November challenges up and I created these three cards for the sketch challenge. The first card with the gorgeous TGF Anya lounge stamp (which I love) is matched with Echo Park Life is good papers. I added Kaisercraft rhinestones for some girly bling. The second card was made using Bo Bunny PP and chipboard from their Block Party collection. Awesome boy papers, and the last card I used Basic Grey Oliver papers and stickers.

If you want to be inspired or need to check out some challenges, The Stamp Spot has two up this month. The sketch challenge and a colour one too. Pop on over and take a look.

Thanks for looking.
Take care and enjoy your week.

More Layouts To Share

Another couple of layouts to share today.
These were also done for Challenge Heaven in October.
The first one is the sketch challenge. I have used Basic grey Olivia papers. The buttons are from Stampin' Up. This page was chosen for layout of the week. So I was very happy about that.

The second one was for the word challenge. You had to use the word "Smile" somewhere on your page. It's not the greatest photo as Renee was literally about 2cm from me. But I love it...the curious, cheeky look on her face. The papers and journalling tag are My Minds Eye So Sophie. I have used Kaisercraft red pearls and my Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

Thanks for looking.

A Couple Of Layouts

A couple of layouts I have been doing this last week for the October challenges over at Challenge Heaven.

The first one "Beautiful " was for the number challenge. You could only use one of everything. I decided to keep this page quite simple. I misted some pink on the background and placed a Basic Grey transparency over the photo. Then finished it off with some sponging and doodling.

The second LO was for the colour challenge - blue, white and black. I love the effect of one colour and one black and white photo for this one. You had to have flowers on the page too so I made my own to match the papers. It's not girly either.

Thanks for looking.
I will have a couple more to show you tomorrow .
