Candy Apples at the Fair #FM220

Good Friday morning, thanks for stopping by.  Today I am over at The Friday Mashup and am playing around with Lisa's new challenge for us this week.  Its all about "The Fair".  Who doesn't remember going to the Fair when you were a kid.  Well maybe you still do love going!  I haven't been to one in several years, but besides the fun rides, visiting with friends and the cotton candy, one of the things I remember was getting a candy apple.  Think of what your memories are of the fair, grab those supplies and come play along.  We can't wait to see what you create as always!

Here's your Mashup Challenge this week:
  • Create a project "inspired by the State Fair".
  • Create a project using "Punches".
  • or Mash it Up and create a project "inspired by the Fair using your punches".

My background is created with a piece of white paper embossed in the woodgrain folder and sponged with baked brown sugar ink.  I cut it into two pieces and added a layer of plaid gingham garden DSP and burlap behind it.  My candy apple is created with one 1-3/8" circle and I cut just a small portion off the botton.  I also cut one more in baked brown sugar and used my snips to cut some swirls like caramel coming off the top.  The stick for the apple is actually a pop cycle stick.  I always make sure I have some laying around!
Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ baked brown sugar, pear pizzazz, whisper white
Ink ~ island indigo, baked brown sugar
Stamp set ~ teeny tiny wishes
DSP ~ gingham garden
Misc. ~ woodgrain embossing folder, regal candy dots, wooden pop cycle stick, burlap, 1-3/8" circle punch, snips
Now that you've seen my "fair" project, leave some "love" and head on over to see what the other designers have created!
