Cotton Candy

My blog might have found its soulmate. Its soulblog, or its blogmate, if you will. Candy Shoppe Designs caught my eye today, and held it for a good hour. Their latest competition, titled Cotton Candy, was too good to ignore. The challenge is to get inspired by this palette:

Well, this is my entry. I chose to make a layout, using a photo taken on my birthday a few years ago. It's called 'Love & Bubbles':

I used some Bazzill cardstock to match the palette, and cut the circle from Doodlebug Designs Inc. 'Cherry Amore' paper.

I really had to restrain myself when it came to the polka dots though... I could've gone to town, but wanted to keep the page bright and simply accent it with black and white.

The competition is sponsored by the Magpie Club, and this is the amazing blog candy up for grabs:

Wish me luck!
