S2G Twisted Thursday Challenge

I decided to try my first company based challenge today. My fellow cardmaking friend Justine
designs for a company called Shirley's 2 Girls or S2G for short. This is my submission for their "Twisted Thursday" challenge. I copied the layout and add the "twist" of polk a dots as per the requirements. I apologize for the terrible pics. I was trying to capture the textured polk a dot background.
I also decided to give my few Copic Sketch markers a try on the tiny cupcakes. Didn't turn out like I wanted. I'm a novice at Copics so maybe with some more trial and error I'll get it right.
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes (SU)
Ink: Ranger Adirondak
Cardstock: Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart, Stampers Select White, Summer Sunrise (All PTI)
Ribbon: PTI
Copic Markers

Back to School

The Paper Backpack

This is what I've been working on. I cannot take credit for the pattern/idea. I found it on SCS.

Retired Simply Scrappin' Kit
I used the rectangle and circle stickers in the scrappin kit and used my star punch with them. Clever idea for those strange shaped stickers you have no use for.
