Before I announce the new challenge I want to share our NEW Lollipop Girls dedication layouts and some random fun facts about them. So without any further ado, here is Ally, Dana and Myia.....

Ally Serrato a.k.a. Sour Patch Chick

Ally is a natural blonde (mentally and physically), she thinks she's sooooo funny but doesn't know if anyone else would agree, she once had a 4-minute conversation with my 2 year old one day when my daughter was playing with my cell phone lol, her bff is a nice boy from church and she pretty much only wears Dr Martens, Vans and flip flops because she's 5'10 and doesn't need heels.

Dana Tatar a.k.a. Pop Rocks Dana wishes to travel enough to fill up her passport.....which by the way is empty, she milks her birthday for the entire month, she thinks chocolate + peanut butter = perfection, she's had a crush on a professor or 3 and she's one of them people you see singing it up in the car.

Myia Manghum a.k.a. Brown Sugar Myia can't stand smoking and gambling yet she works in a casino, she prefers fake flowers over real ones, she owns 125 handbags and they are all Coach and Dooney and Bourke, she admits to spending more money on scrapbooking supplies than on groceries and everywhere she goes and everything she does, she's wearing lip gloss.....showering, sleeping and eating included!

Interesting bunch of girls yes? We thought so too! ;-)

Now, on to our first May challenge..... TWENTY-ONE
Due: May 7

Today is National Scrapbooking Day.....just saying, in case you didn't know.....and because it's NSD we here at Candy Shoppe Designs wanted to celebrate our 21st challenge by prompting you all to incorporate "TWENTY-ONE" into your creations in some way, shape or form.

Twenty-one is a very powerful number, a very common number and in a way, it has some sort of legality to it. Perhaps that's why I feel validated regarding our challenge blog.....we've come so far!

For this challenge think 21st century, 21 random fun facts about yourself maybe, the legal age of drinking (in some states), how many beers are on the wall, etc.

By playing along this month to our challenges you have the chance of winning this de-li-cious Blog Candy by our May sponsor the "Magpie Club."

The Magpie Club is a scrapbooking kit club that includes lots of new products and tons of handmade stuff in their kits. They even have a $12.50 Credit Crunch kit option. It's SO worth it to check them out!

Amy Oxford a.k.a. Snap Crackle Pop
Snap Crackle Pop created a LO around the idea of things she will accomplish in the near future. 1. Research family genealogy 2. Learn a new Language 3. Give back 4. Turn my passion into a career 5. Drink a green beer in Ireland 6. Run in a marathon 7. Build dream home 8. Finish College 9. Find and get to know my sister 10. Ride in a Hot Air Balloon 11. Explore Paris 12. Be emotionally Generous 13. Try new things willingly 14. Swim in the Ocean 15. Watch my children grow 16. Rediscover myself with God 17. Write a random book 18. Bury a time capsule 19. Learn how to garden 20. Let go, forgive and love more 21. Motorcycle road trip

Kate Blue a.k.a. KitKat KitKat created a LO based around 21 ways she is going to have fun this year because having fun is a big goal for her. She tends to get bogged down in the day to day stuff and wants her family to see more of a balance.

Christina Aiton a.k.a. Lemon Zinger Lemon Zinger just so happened to be making her grocery list when she got the challenge deets. I hope that's an extra savings card.....stuff aint cheap!

Audrey Yeager a.k.a. Chocolate Pretzel Chocolate Pretzel thought of doing a list of some sort, but she couldn't think of 21 things. She thought about doing something about when she turned 21, but she didn't have any great pictures. She was thinking 21 years, 21 weeks, 21 days....Well 21 days from Sunday happens to be her daughter's first bithday!!! She could have done a LO about that, but she started thinking about other milestones that would happen at 1 years old...and one of the things she can't wait for is to be done with her breast pump....she's had it with the thing! She only pump once a day, but she can't standing feeling like a cow and she's so tired of washing all those parts everyday.

Mindy Miller a.k.a. Lemon Drop Lemon Drop made a mini album about 21 things she identifies with.....favorites if you may. For example: 21 Black Jack is her favorite card game.

Lynnette Davis a.k.a. Cherry Lolita
The Lollipop Girl DT has a seperate VIP area where do a lot of chatting about up-coming challenges and whats going on in our lives, etc. Recently we have been doing a lot of chatting regarding birthdays and astrological signs and come to find out we have a lot of gemini's in the house.....excuse me.....Shoppe. Gemini's are known as the sign of the twins.....but really.....there's only one of me. I always thought it odd that geminis were thought of as "the twins, " so I titled my LO "When 2 become one."
