I was sad to have to say my farewell's to Cupcake, Pink Tootsie and Peppermint Swirl but quickly thought to myself "Self, just put another DT CALL out there and find yourself replacements." So that is what I did.
I am more than happy to announce these NEW Lollipop Girls and I am pretty sure you are all eager to see who made it on the team as well. So, say hello to my little friends.......Sugar, spice and all that nice stuff to the side.....these newest members are also made of courage, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent and guts and I am PROUD to call them my newest Lollipop Girls.
We all want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time it took to apply. We would gladly open up our Candy Shoppe doors for all of you talented folk if we had the room.
We will be having a NEW DT CALL in the next few months and for those that are still interested we encourage you to re-apply. Sometimes it takes that extra determination and to prove that....this happens to be the newest members 2nd or more try to get on this DT. So, with that said....stick around, show us your dedication and try, try again!

Your chances of making it on the DT all depends on who has applied.
We've already received a butt load of applications to go through, but still encourage you all to get out of your bubble and apply if your interested in the spot.
If you don't make it on the team this time, don't give up your hopes for next time!
With that said, thank you to all and everyone who has took the time to apply. We truly appreciate your interest in wanting to design along with us.
We look forward to these next 3 designers presense on the team and will let you know our decision in a post on Monday.

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:
"Hello Spring" by KitKat
"Rainkist" by Lemon Zinger
"A shower is a luxury" by Chocolate Pretzel
"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
