The BOLD & The Beautiful

If I said it once, I said it a thousand times....Okay, maybe I'm over-exaggerating....but have I not said "We Lollipop Girls like to spice things up?" We thought we'd give you a little taste of another Design Team called The Pink Ninja's. Check them out! Their a quirky bunch. We've traded Design Teams with them for 1 challenge. Don't worry! The Lollipop Girls are in the good hands of Ninja Master's Ally and Nely, so their safe and will be back with you all in December! In the meantime, we're going to serve The Pink Ninja DT on a silver platter for you all to enjoy.

The challenge we had them do for us is called The BOLD & The Beautiful and basically all you need to do is mix at least 3 different patterned papers that DO NOT coordinate and make them work together. I mean....3 totally clashing patterns that if put side by side would make you go "Whoa! Don't go there!".....and then we want you to go there! LOLThe main colors for each patterned paper must be pulled from the above color palette (Fuschia, White, Yellow-Orange and Black). You must also create your title or any wording used in BIG & Bold Lettering. Try using just scraps.....I did!

*I know you see a few of us Lollipop Girls still here and that is because we 3 are on both the C.S.D. DT and The Pink Ninja's DT.

Well, we've hoped that we've inspired you and we would love to see YOUR take to this challenge so go ahead and link up your layouts for us all to enjoy!

By doing so you could WIN a Vintage Styled Apron from our Sponsor BOOJIBOO. Check out the Apron Jennifer Priest scored from them. Just can wear the apron when doing messy scrappy stuff, while making Christmas Dinner or for your hubby (with nothing underneath) as a nice surprise for when he comes home from work. ;) Whatever you decide to use it for, we can be sure you'll look cute doing it!

When we announce who the Winner of this challenge is I'll be showing you all another cute picture of our other Lollipop Girl Michelle Jacknicke wearing the Apron she scored from them.

Boojiboo specializes in vintage styled and retro styled aprons for adults and children. The apron styles are all ORIGINAL Boojiboo designs. They make their own patterns to ensure a perfect fit! Make sure you own the original apron with the sweetheart neckline, flared skirt, and fitted bust! Check them out TODAY to get your very own or get them for a gift for that someone special!

DEADLINE for entries is 12 December.

Sweetheart Winners Announcement

Was New Moon good or what? I know, I know! The books are still better...I plan on re-reading them all before Eclipse comes out next summer to refresh my memory a bit. It's possible by then that I will have re-read the books about a dozen times. LOL

I have a few announcements to make...the first being that I have the newest Sweethearts Winners List. I'll start with the Watch Your Language Challenge.

Some of you showed us your potty mouths and some of you sugar coated it, but all in all the Lollipop Girls and I thought those of you who stood up to this particular challenge had a lot of balls and we give you all much props for participating. There can only be 1 Winner and for this challenge that would be Lora Oliver. Excuse my language but we Lollipop Girls thought her layout kicked a$$! Check it out for yourselves!
For the Big Ego Challenge we think you all proved yourselves righteous but like I said...there can only be 1 Winner and for this particular challenge we Lollipop Girls all agreed that Amy is AWESOME!
For the Team Edward vs. Team Jacob Challenge it was SO hard to choose a Winner. We thought Amy Oxford did AWESOME this round again with her Vampire Chic layout...
and we also thought that Olga had an awesome take to the challenge as well with her Miss Personality layout...
So, we gave them both an HONORABLE MENTION for thier layouts. We gave the Winner title to Mindy Baxter with her Forever card. How cool is this card people?...
What can I say? Real men sparkle! ha! Thank you EVERYONE for playing along to our challenges. We have so much fun looking through all the entries and deciding on the Winners...please keep participating because next time, it could be YOU!

To the Winners...the contact info. to claim your Blog Candy (prizes) is on the menu bar above. Reminder: Anyone can play for fun but if you were playing for the prize the s&h is the Winners responsibility. Thanks for understanding!

I need to tack on additional info. for the Winners and anyone else who may be affected by my absence but I am moving out of state (from Fort Lee, VA to Fort Hood, TX) and after today will have little to no internet access. I'll have a new address by December 8th and should have my internet back up shortly after. So, please have patience until I get back online for answers to any of your questions and what not.

Your next challenge from us will be up later tonight and included is a BIG surprise to show you all just how much we here at C.S.D love to stir things up. Watch out for it!

Last but definately not least is our "Shout-Outs." We want to give a shout-out to Ally Serrato for being our Special Guest Designer in October and Chris Aiton for being our Special Guest Designer for November. We can't wait to share with you all who our Special Guest Designer for December is.

We also want to give a BIG shout out to all of our October and November Sponsors. Without them this challenge blog wouldn't be so rewarding.

Team Edward vs. Team Jacob Challenge

Okay, it's no secret that I (along with a bunch of the other Lollipop Girls) are Twilight fans. Yes, I really enjoyed reading about the teenage vampires. VERY MUCH I might add. Yes, I can watch the movie over and over again with as much anticipation as I did the very first time I ever watched it. And yes, I plan on buying a bunch of tickets to take my daughter and her friends next week to watch New Moon in the theaters. I figure, my daughter and the rest of her pre-teen friends will make me look a little better if I had to stand in line to watch this movie. Obsessed? Maybe.

Now, even though some of you may not "get it," that's okay. You didn't have to plant your face in the books for this challenge and you didn't even have to see the movie. All you need to know is that Edward is a Vampire and Jacob is a "Werewolf" and they are both in love with the stupid Lamb ~ Bella.

Choose a team to be on ~ Edward's or Jacob's.

Team Edward -
Who's afraid of the BIG Bad Wolf? Not Edward! If you choose to be a Vampire girl than you will need to completly dazzle me. As a Vampire, Edward's skin sparkles in the sunlight. Yes, real men sparkle! So, dig out your bling-bling and use it!

Don't stop there! If you chose Edward you also need to use the colors Black and Red. It doesn't have to be all black and red. Just as long as there is some black and red on your paper creation (even in the tiniest bit) then you are all good to go!

Team Jacob -
Prefer half-naked guys instead? If you choose to run with the Wolves then you will need to include a heart because Jacob has one.

Reminder: If you see a wolf running around your house, don't shoot at it!

You will also need to use the colors brown and white.

No matter which team you choose to be on, you DO NOT have to create a Twilight themed Paper Creation. It can be anything of your choosing. Just follow the rules above set for each team and no vampires or wolves need to be incorporated into the making.

You can create more than just a Scrapbooking layout if you wish. Just as long as it is a Paper Creation it will be eligible. Please make sure to link it to Mr Linky below by the due date which is: Sunday, 22 November.

Terri from Color Me Miki is our Sponsor for this challenge and she has donated the BEWITCHING Kit that includes some of the New Pink Paislee Twilight line. It will go to 1 Lucky Winner that the Lollipop Girls choose from the entries. If you like "Eclectic," you will LOVE Color Me Miki! Click on their highlighted name to be taken over there to check out the home of the miki kits!

To get you inspired here are a few creations by the Lollipop Girl Desigh Team here at C.S.D. and our Special Guest Designer for November.
This first and AWESOME scrapbooking layout is by our extremely talented Guest Designer Chris Aiton. Obviously she chose to be on Team Jacob.

This tag is by our lovely Elina. She chose to be on Team Edward.

This layout is by Jen P. and she chose to be on Team Jacob.

This layout is by Jen F. and she chose Team Jacob as well.
Jenny chose to be on Team Jacob too and created a layout!
Dr. Annika created a layout and she chose to be on Team Edward. Woo-hoo, yeah! LOL
Sandy was on Team Jacob and she created a layout.

Melissa chose to be on Team Edward. She created a Halloween themed card.
Who would I be if I didn't choose to be on Edward's Team? LOL I chose to create a Stickles Storage Box. On the top of the box it says "Make Life Sparkle."
Remember, DUE DATE for entries (for the Blog Candy) is 22 NOVEMBER:
