Have a Lollipop of a Day with Gilli

Hello everyone and welcome to the House of Gilli’s third challenge.

This is a very simple and fun challenge…use pastel colors and some bling. Why don’t you all come join us? There is plenty of time. If you are reading this today, Thursday, March 17, you have nine days.

Here is my creation with Lollipop Gilli for your viewing.

There is a little story behind my Lollipop Gilli. If you will look at her shoes, you will note that I made them into sandals. (Sorry, Anary. I know you meant for Gilli to be wearing shoes.)

My story…my DD, who is now 35, hated wearing shoes, PERIOD! It did not matter what the season. Well, we finally compromised (which is still hard to do with Heidi, to this day LOL). It was the dead of winter and if she had to have something on her feet it was going to her flip flops (I think she was around four years old). Our compromising was she could wear “sandals” but she had to wear socks with those sandals. Remember it was the winter. Thank goodness she went for it! I felt like I jumped hurtles that day. LOL Oh, and getting her to wear dresses, that’s a whole other story. I wonder if she will read this! She has given us two handsome teenage boys. I remind her every time we talk about the boys, "It's just payback." LOL
