It's Raining, It's Pouring Challenge

It's a sad but exciting time here at C.S.D. It's the end of the DT term and I'm having to say goodbye to a few of my Lollipop Girls. Cupcake, Peppermint Swirl and Pink Tootsie are all going to enjoy the summer months with their family and take a break. Alls good though! With this new change taking place we'll get to welcome 3 NEW Lollipop Girls to the team.

I thought this was the perfect time to incorporate rain/tear drops into our creations this month. The saying goes...."April showers bring May flowers" and I do think it's a good way to symbolize the changes taking place at C.S.D. In April we're all saying our goodbyes to each other but come May we'll be welcoming 3 new girls to the team and it will be a joyous time once again.

Here are the oh-so-inspiring layouts from the Lollipop Girls in no particular order:

"I'm not easily broken" by Snap Crackle Pop


"Hello Spring" by KitKat


"Rainkist" by Lemon Zinger


"A shower is a luxury" by Chocolate Pretzel




"Garden of Secret" by Pink Coffee Bean

"Tears" by Pink Tootsie



"Happiness is to hold flowers in both hands" card by Lemon Drop


"Happy Spring" by Cupcake


"Miss You" card by Peppermint Swirl

"When it RAIMS, it pours!" by Cherry Lolita

*Her name is Raime
