Challenge at Candy Shoppe Designs

On the 1st of September the new challenge blog "Candy Shoppe Designs" was launched and I decided to participate in their very first challenge!

You had to create a layout using:
- paper strips
- something gold
- the colours aqua/pink/purple and cream (=main colour)
and you could choose to use this sketch:

I used three Sassafras Lass pp strips & chipboard and cardstock stickers & a card & a flower, rig rag pp from MM, felt and buttons from Creative Café, Prima flower, gold star from a sheet of AC Thickers, Autumn Leaves swirl stamps, 2 pins, and some bling.

You have to look very good to discover my golden element on the page:

And don't forget: you've still got time to enter in my own give-away!!! Look here for details!



  1. Prachtige layout zeg! Heel erg mooie kleurtjes en het vogeltje/de wolk/de luchtballon is ook heel erg gaaf. Prachtige foto trouwens.

  2. Ik had die challenge/het nieuwe blog gezien maar vond het wel een hele ingewikkelde opdracht - verkrampte spontaan. Geweldig, dat jij er mee weg wist en dan ook nog eens zoiets moois maken! Vind het echt heeeeeel mooi en knap!!!

  3. Thanks for your comment! I'll get a translator! Love that layout w/ the purple, just the color inspiration I need for a challange I'm gonna take on soon! Love the Sassafras on it, of course!
