Sweet Cakes and your chance to win...

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Doodlebug have been showcasing their gorgeous new mid-release 'Sweet Cakes' and I have to say that I've fallen for it in a big way. I've always been a huge fan of red and pink together, so much so that I have an entire rose garden dedicated to just those two colours. And with Valentine's Day approaching it is the perfect collection to be playing with.

Mr Wilson is our darling cat who has an incredibly bad habit of positioning himself on my desk and falling asleep whilst I'm trying to do bookwork, this particular day he was sprawled across the desk behind my laptop and had his head resting on my calculator so I couldn't resist taking this photo... darn cat!

Supplies Used: Sweet Cakes cardstock - Valentine Twine; Sweet Cakes 6x6 paper pad; Sweet Cakes - fancy frills, icon cardstock stickers; Crushed velvet cardstock - cupcake, ladybug; Candyshoppe card stock stickers - ladybug, lily white; Shin Dig cardstock stickers - cupcake; Candy Shoppe mini rub ons - ladybug, lily white; Boutique brads - confection, sweet treat, ladybug, cupcake, bubblegum, love, Christmas candy; Mini Jewels - ladybug, cupcake.

The gorgeous Doodlebug Layout Sketch for the month of January was designed by the very talented Aphra Bolyer and each of the design team were given the opportunity to have a play. I love how different everyone's layouts were considering we all used the same sketch. You can stop by the blog HERE to see all the different approaches using Aphra's sketch and the Sweet Cakes collection.
