A Sweet New Challenge...

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Welcome to the Imaginisce Challenge blog hop...
Well goodness me, didn't January pass us by quickly and here we are at the start of another month! This year Imaginisce have decided to mix things up a little with their monthly challenges and February is no exception... Aphra and Courtney have joined forces to bring you a delightfully scrummy new challenge using the following picture and colour combination as inspiration!

Now I loved the picture so much that I decided to use it as a sketch and 'attempt' to make some of the little sweeties on show... hmmm, after several hours I was wishing I'd thought otherwise! The colour combinations of the Enchanted collection were perfect for the challenge and gave it a real 'lolly-shop' feel.






I had so much fun creating the lolly-pops and marshmallow sticks using my daughter's favourite product (at the moment) Rubba-Dubba Doo, an air drying clay. I think this product could become a bit of a fave of mine too!
Now, if you feel inspired to take up this months challenge using the top pic and colour combination as your inspiration and atleast 75% of Imaginisce products then you have until the 25th February to have your project loaded into the Linkitz gallery on the Imaginisce blog. The winning entry will take home an i-top package valued at over $75 US!

And for playing along in today's blog hop you could take home the brand new i-bond tool which I've used in my project to glue all my sweeties! All you have to do is leave a comment on each of the participating design team members' blogs and then one final comment on the Imaginisce blog to say what you've enjoyed about todays hop! Simple!

To help you along your way, you should have just arrived from:
 and after my blog you should be heading to visit:

Good luck and thanks for stopping by!


From farm to you...
