It is maybe the cutest thing ever.
And I have been doing my happy dance a lot around here lately because of these two gems "Shiny & New"...

I obtained permission to post the layout based on a CK sketch. Journaling reads: Today you got new shoes, a new headband and a BRAND NEEEEEEW CAR! [game show voice]--& you had the time of your life. Luckily we got it all on video & took a million photos.
And here is "Lollipop Kids"...

Journaling reads: What a sweet treat! Ev's 1st lollipop. Nakiah showed her how to enjoy each lick...they even tried each others flavors. Now that is sweet.
This is the one I told you about where they purchased the rights to the accent. I made all three steps and set them up for a tutorial. I am really pleased with the way the lollipops turned out. The idea was to highlight the bright colors of the candy while adding some kind of dimension and interest. Mission accomplished! I used cardstock and ribbon as well as patterned paper. It gives the finished product a nice texture....oh, and don't forget the straws for sticks!
I can't wait to make something like this again but using the new product called glubers by Cosmo Cricket (super sticky and made for elements like this)...cuz when I made mine I used hot glue and burned my fingers a lot (not so happy).
Have you done any happy dancing lately?
