I was able to get my layout done today and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. There were 10 steps given for the "Sweet 16' blog hop and I was challenged to try things I don't normally do. For example I used chipboard as my base instead of cardstock and painted around the edge. I even distressed one of my wedding photos for the layout. LOL Who knows maybe I'll even win the Lollipop Guild kit from Studio Calico. The Candy Shoppe Designs blog is fast becoming my favourite place to look for inspiration.
