Lollipop Flowers

Hi Everyone! gosh, it's been a while huh? I've been busy with this and that, and moving my scrappy space downstairs. Not thinking it was going to be such a large project, I soon discovered I had misplaced alot of things during this process but did carry around my kit from DSC, September Gyspy Market. Also, I was in the middle of trying to perfect my lollipop flowers. I cut the circles out, burned the edges (I learned from RoxyCar1) ~ put in the flower centers...........but still wasn't happy with them, something was missing!

I finally perfected them ~to my liking~ by watching Hope, from MsScrappaperScissors.blogspot.com ~ she did a tutorial on her lollipop flowers and added "stickles"! I am on a stickles kick now, and that was it! I used my stickles and I love how my flowers turned out! Thank you Hope for your inspiration! Your technique is exactly what I needed! My favorite stickles are the cinnamon and the new Coffee! I also love the copper! Take a look! (ok, my "image" thingy is doing it again..........so we wait, I'm so impatient!) Help! what am I doing wrong, as this isn't the first time this has happened)Mmm, still waiting..............

You know lolipop flowers are some of my favorites to create - I've not been able to create the fabric one to my satisfaction and there you go again making beautiful flowers - I'm still gonna work at it - I'll get it as long as I practice, practice, practice - I haven't made any of the quality I would use in any projects - yours are just magnificent TTFN - LL & P, Weezie
