A Sweet Counterfeit Challenge...

To play along with the Get Picky Birthday Hop, please click HERE.

The monthly challenges & inspiration are in high gear over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog...if you're up for a challenge, please go check out both the candy & blog hop challenges going on now!

Here's my layout for the Candy challenge:

The challenge was to be inspired by candy, and I immediately thought of these favorite sweet accents that my friends & I were recently loving:

To recreate this look, first I scavenged through the pantry for some left-over pieces of summer taffy.  Wax-paper or parchment paper would also work well. 
After removing the candy, I stamped the edges of the wrappers with Stazon ink, and added super-subtle rub-ons from the Porcelain rub-ons in my Counterfeit kit.
Inside the wrapper is a small rounded-corner rectangle of pink craft foam.  Simple, fun, and sweet!

They were the perfect accent for this layout using "sweet" imagery to describe the loving relationship my daughters have together:
