Lollipop Ladies & Chocolate Cupcakes - with swirls

Hi Ladies
Another fortnight has passed and you know what that means
another sweet challenge at Lollipop Ladies.
This week has been one of my fav's, chocolate cupcakes.
Who doesn't love those? Your bonus challenge is swirls.
Personally I love swirls of cream on my chocco cupcakes.
What do you like to have with your choc cupcakes?
Here is what I came up with for the challenge.
I was inspired by the colour chocolate and for my bonus
I used chipboard swirls, which I have left raw as
I felt it sat well on the page without anything
done to them. I used Kaisercraft papers
bazzill cardstock, Kaisercraft pearls and
Paper Inklings chipboard accents.

Make sure you head on over to Lollipop Ladies and
take a look at what all the other amazing
design team ladies came up. You are sure to be
inspired by all the talent.

Nuts about sketches #135 & #136

Hello Ladies
Long time no blog. I have a very sick child which
makes it a little hard to keep up with blogging & things of that nature.
I have two pages to share, this first page is my Nuts about Sketches #136.
A double page layout, which I always find challenging.
The photo's I used on this page were taken at
Palm Cove Beach in August of this year.
Head on over to the site and check out the sketches I would
love to see what you come up with.

The page below is a catch up for Nuts about sketches.
This was for a single page sketch and I have used
Kaisercraft papers from the Lush range.
These images were taken by Romy Photography
during the Greenway's Dance Festival in Innisfail Qld.

I hope to get back on track with life soon.
I just need my baby to get better first.

I am a Candy Stripe.

I am here to reveal that I am a CANDY STRIPE!

I am now a design team member for The Lollipop Ladies.
Along with these amazing ladies
& Me

How Exciting!
This fortnight the sweet inspiration was Jellybeans with a touch of gloss.
I was inspired by the old days of school fete's. Remember when you
would pay 20c and then get to guess how many jellybeans in the jar?
So I decided to make a jellybean jar and for some reason
(I have no idea why)
but it turned into a jellybean monster.
My added gloss was on the word jellybeans
I put dimension magic over each letter to give them a glossy raised look.
Here is the picture for inspiration

and here is my take

Now please come on over and check out what my other Design team members
have created, they are all such a talented group of ladies.
Come on and have a go see what sweet inspiration you can come up with.
There is a winner every week and always great prizes.
Give thanks to trees & spread the love
