Counterfeit Kit challenge -October

Over at the Counterfeit Kit blog they are challenging us to scrap using Candy as our inspiration. so here is my candy inspired layout, mind you the zip that forms the liquorice Catherine Wheel wasn't in my kit but I loved the idea that my lovely friend Tracie Doodle used on one of her layouts. I have altered the idea slightly as I stripped the teeth part of the zip away from the material

I really had to zoom in to see what you meant by "stripping the zipper" LoL...I'm not very sewing literate! I adore this layout and I think I will try that technique with the zipper at some point!

Great use of the zip - clever to strip it! I really like the watch chain effect too!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
