-The base of your Paper Creation should be BLACK. It doesn't have to be all black or even plain black, but black. With that said, you don't have to create a layout. It can be any kind of Paper Creation (a layout, a card, a mini album, an altered item, etc.).
-The title/journaling on your Paper Creation (should you choose to add one) should be WHITE.
-You must include a PLAID, CHECKERED or ARGYLE PRINT and
-You must include an APPLE. It doesn't matter how many.
We are doing away with the POINT SYSTEM and instead strictly going by the voting from the Lollipop Girls from now on. So, do your best job and Good Luck! The Winner will be announced on 14 October.

"Rebellious" by Sandra Polette a.k.a. Rasberry Dazzle
"I am naughty and rebellious sometimes"
Growing up and all through high school I was a geek. I wore the glasses, played clarinet in the band, made straight A's, and never questioned authority. I was even considered a "goodie-goodie" by my wild and outgoing friend Amanda. Boy, I made my parent's proud though! :) Haha! Today (I'm still a geek)-- but I'm not as straight-laced as I seem. People presume I am. I may be cautious and play it safe in general but I have seasons when I'm downright rebellious! I've done stupid things that make me wonder, "What was I thinking?!" One of those things happens to be me taking these silly pictures---and then posting them on this layout! LOL

"Log-in" by Elina Koutsouradi a.k.a. Sour Puss
School starts and you just have to let the geek out of you! I have scrapped my cute cat Gardouba sitting right on top of my keyboard, looking like he is waiting to get some internet classes, so I gave him an apple for his first day at computer class and a patterned paper with numbers for his equations, lots of distressing with scissors for my plaid paper and a tag writing his name in Greek.
