My First Lollishop Challenge ....

I waited until the last hour ... not unusual for me, I'm a procrastinator by nature ... on the upside though, I tend to work better "under pressure" ... trust me, I was feelin' the pressure with my first Lollishop challenge ... to be part of a "Design Team" was completely intimidating to me ... I did the best I could to put my insecurities behind me ... took out my challenge kit, various glues, ink, an old silver salt shaker top, and a vintage blue glass bottle and set off to tackle the task before me ... and the result? ... An altered 'Gypsy~Dream' bottle!
  
Annie from Glitter Your World supplied all of us with a fun kit filled with goodies. I have to admit the glitter was my favorite item ... this stuff is great! Not like anything I worked with before ... ultra fine and sparkly ... soft as fine beach sand ... now that would be cool ... a whole beach full of this yummy stuff!! Hmmmm ... maybe a new Lollishop Sports Challenge? 'Glitter Wrestling' !! Can you picture it??

 

All design team participants should have their projects up on March 1st ... here are some handy links to their blogs ... enjoy all the frou-frou friendly treasures!
