PLAYING OUTSIDE WITH KOEN
by Amy Oxford a.k.a. Snap Crackle Pop
The Lollipop Girls went to town with this challenge using so many different fake (or faux) techniques. Notice the distressing jobs: torn and scraped edges, wrinkles, digital and hybrid elements, etc. And check this....Amy actually hand painted her paper to give it that wood grain look. How cool is that?
This weeks challenge is called "PLASTIC." The Lollipop Girls wanna see how FAKE you can be. If you have a boob job, that's great! BUT.... we're really looking more along the lines of faux techniques you have up your sleeves.
You know, such as faux stitching, distressing, hybrid, etc.
For this challenge WE WANNA SEE....
....YOU become a "Sweetheart of C.S.D." by pressing on that FOLLOW button once and for all.
....YOU rock our LINK BADGE on your blog with a working link leading back to us.
....YOU blog about Candy Shoppe Designs AND our October Sponsor BlueMoonScrapbooking in a NEW posting and share this PLASTIC challenge with your readers.
....How fake (or faux) you can be. So, leave a comment and DIRECT LINK in the comment section of this post.
This challenge is due by this Sunday, October 24. So HURRY!

Not only did she WOW the judges with how she implemented the Razberry Dazzle color scheme into her layout but she also amazed them at how much of a C.S.D. Sweetheart she truly is. She's rocking the C.S.D. Link Badge, she made sure to leave a working C.S.D. link in her blog posting and she didn't forget to mention our June sponsor. All power to you Mo!

BROKENby Amy Oxford a.k.a. Snap Crackle Pop
In Amy's words: This LO is based off of Lindsey Haun's song 'Broken'. The lyrics fit with what and how my daughter has been feeling lately. She is at that age and experiencing growing pains. She's emotional and confused. I used the lyric: "When you're broken in a million little pieces, and you're trying but you can't hold on. Every tear falls down for a reason. Don't stop believing in yourself when you're broken."
To represent the broken aspect of the challenge I broke glass and placed it over her picture. To do this I used clear contact paper and placed the pieces onto that as to secure them over the picture. I used broken cardboard, and ripped tissue paper. I also broke up the title.
WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? by Annika Prestwich a.k.a. Pink Coffee Bean
In Annika's words: I loves this challenge. I get to play with things and break them, all a part of the Grand Plan! *love it*
I was inspired by the colours in the picture, and the ribbon-y flower in the girl's hair. I took some embellishments from Pink Paislee and cut them up and made a new flower with them, as well as some green bits resembling leaves.
SOMEDAY I WILL LAUGH ABOUT THIS by Christina Aiton a.k.a. Lemon Zinger
In Chris' words: The photo is of our dining room after we were hit dead on by Hurricane Frances in Sept 2004 - we were hit again 3 weeks later dead on by Hurricane Jeanne and had even more damage. Our house was gutted and totally redone while we lived for 6 months in a small trailer parked by our house. We actually do laugh about it now!
MY LITTLE STAR by Myia Manghum a.k.a. Brown Sugar
Myia simply broke up her title.
LOOKING THROUGH MY LENS by Mindy Miller a.k.a. Lemon Drop
In Mindy's words: I've been saving this circular piece of wood veneer for just the right layout. I placed it under my title to emulate a lens and then used the piece I split off the right on the opposite side of the layout.
BRIDESMAIDS Ally Serrato a.k.a. Sour Patch Chick
In Ally's words: obviously, ive busted out some older photos,,, just for fun!!!
THE CASTLE OF GRADARA Guest Designer - Ilaria Gianquinto
