I'm Going Lolly Mad!

This week has been a bit of a blur but when I have found time to indulge in a bit of crafty ness all I can think about this week are lollipops and ice cream! I think it all started off on Monday when I got my hands on some of the lush new Sassafras Lass Serendipity Scrumptious papers, with names like 'Raspberry Ripple' how can I not think of ice cream? They're lush and weirdly remind me of my childhood, taking trips to the seaside, getting huge Knickerbocker Glories and ice cream floats from the Milk Bar in Brid. It's the colours that set me off the pink, red and turquoise. It's probably something to do with the 50's style ice cream Parlor that was the Milk Bar at Brid but the colour combination of pink, minty turquoise, cream and red just scream ice cream and seaside to me! That train of thought kicked off a layout I'm currently working on (currently being right at this moment) about smells that remind me of the seaside. But before that it was all about lollys! These lollys in particular are ribbon lollys, a bit of a daft idea I made up as a different way of storing my ribbons! To me they look scrumilicous but that's a problem because now how on earth can I dismantle them to actually use the ribbon??
