Candy Shoppe Designs will now be offering "Sweet Confections."
(Yummy Scrapbooking/Embellishment Kits)

We won't offer them monthly but randomly instead because as you know, we like to do things differently around here. So stop in frequently to see what we offer up next. Our very 1st offering is called The "SweeTart" Kit and it was inspired by our ex-Lollipop Girl Jennifer Matott a.k.a. SweeTart (from 1st term).

It's a very tasty treat for all of you who like to mix things up, like she did. In tribute of her, here are some of her creations she did for Candy Shoppe Designs along with some others that she shared with us....

She was a very inspiring designer and you can find her over on our sister challenge blog "XOXO Girls."

"In with the NEW" Challenge

Out with the old
In with the NEW
or not so NEW
but NEW to you

For the remainder of January your challenge is to create something with the NEWEST scrapbooking product you have at the time of making. Creations can be anything papercraft related, it doesn't have to just be a scrapbooking layout. We want to see creativeness in the best form you know how!

I am very well aware that many of you are cutting back on shopping until you use up some of your current product on hand and have also taken away your scrapbooking budget in order to save money this year. That's okay! Your NEW product can be from a year or two ago just as long as it is the NEWEST scrapbooking goodie you currently have.

Creations have to be NEW as of January 17 and must be submitted by the
due date: January 31
That gives you 2 weeks from start to finish. Totally do-able and to make it easier on you, you could always pair our challenge with others you plan on doing.

Now check out the Eye Candy from the Lollipop Girls....

Amy, Monica and Keely

What do these 3 names have in common?
Answer: They are the names of our 3 winners from our 3 previous challenges.
Double trivia- Boojiboo, Stop & Scrap and Blue Moon Scrapbooking.
Okay, Okay....I know you get the drift! LOL
They are the 3 previous and generous sponsors.
In November Boojiboo generously donated 3 beautiful and lovingly handmade aprons to C.S.D. One of them went to our ex-Lollipop Girl TwistedSoda Pop.... and the other went to our other ex-Lollipop Girl Butterscotch Scrapper.... They are both enjoying their aprons very much and getting LOTS of compliments on them. They are in fact the prettiest aprons that I ever did see.
The 3rd apron goes to our winner of The BOLD & The Beautiful Challenge -Amy Oxford. Here's her winning layout....

I've already been in contact with her and she has chosen this whimsical and super cute Garden Gnomes apron as her Blog Candy selection.... Boojiboo and Candy Shoppe Designs wishes you the best and we hope you have many baking, cooking, cleaning and gardening experiences in this Amy.

Want your own fabulous apron? Go check out Boojiboo, C.S.D.'s top choice in beautiful handmade aprons in all sizes. On to our Double Dose December Challenges....

Monica wowed us with her Boutique Album.... Seriously, what is there not to like about this beautiful creation? We reward her with a $20 Gift Certificate to Stop & Scrap. This way she can buy more beautiful goodies to participate in many more challenges here. ;)

Stop on by there yourself to pick up some goodies and make sure to sign up for their mailing list to get a 5% off coupon. They even have a frequent shopper program called StopandScrap Rewards that offers you up to 10% of your money back in store credit with each purchase. So, it's almost like getting paid back for shopping there. How cool is that?
Last but not least is our 2nd winner in the Double Dose December Challenge - Keely. She created this beautiful "Sweet Birthday Wishes" card.... LOVES IT!!!

We're rewarding her with a bunch of goodies from Blue Moon Scrapbooking. If you haven't been by there it's only a click away. They are an awesome company that sells some of the most beautiful kits and supplies and they even have video's on their products to make it easier to shop at home. Besides all the beautiful goodies they have the customer service is superb!

They are SO awesome that they are sponsoring another giveaway with us this month. Lisa has put together this beautiful kit including goodies from Prima, 7gypsies and Webster's Pages (just to name a few). One winner in the month of January will be the owner of this kit. Check out our current challenge for details on how it could possibly become yours. It's easier than you think.
