Vintage Pastel..........so pretty!!-Tuesday Trigger
When I saw this sweet Tag on Carolyn's Blog, coupled with the Gorgeous Picture that you see above, I just knew I had to check out the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.
I decided that I would challenge myself to be inspired by the lovely confections. Being the Cookie Monster that I am, I have to say that my eagle eye honed onto the lovely iced cookies, which gave inspired me to use white embossing powder to mimic the look of icing. Hmmm it does look good enough to eat, but I'm sure that it's not!
I saw a commercial during a very rare moment that I was watching t.v. last week. It was advertising yet another reality show. This time the focus is on strange addictions. I really didn't pay much attention until I heard the quick segment on someone that was addicted to eating paper. Hmmm I wonder if the paper would be more tasty with pretty white embossing powder? I can say that I am totally addicted to paper; buying it, touching it and yes, sometimes even drinking in the fragrant aroma of freshly unpacked Designer paper (think they might take me on the show??? lol). I would say though that I would never consider eating it................I wouldn't have the best selection for creating! I really shouldn't be poking fun at someone's addictive behaviour, please don't peg me as being cold and callous, it's that pretty white embossing powder that set off this barrage of thoughts.
Additionally, the colours added to my inspiration for this design. I had mainly pink and soft blue in mind, but was wondering how I could pull in a little green and of course some of that Yummy Pomegranite! I was able to do this by using some DP from Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. In addition I thought the paper theme went well with the sentiment, which is available at Stampotique Originals. The faux half Pearls were inspired by the nonpareils on the Cookies. SEEEE it always comes back to those darn Cookies.

In addition to finishing my baking, I'm working on some release samples for January. You may find my posts scarce for the next week or so, but you never know......... I could possible continue to procrastinate and stamp rather than wrap gift, finish making my candy and well the dreaded cleaning of course!
I'll catch you before Christmas
