i pick you hershey kiss stickers

i was delighted to receive an email over the holiday break from genevieve, the owner of superchickland. as you may already know, genevieve is the creative genius behind the kandy kones seen on many party blogs and at birthday parties and celebrations around the globe. so, when she asked ME to be a part of the SUPERCHICK KANDY KONE STYLING CONTEST” i could hardly wait.[paragraph split]genevieve would send me {along with 7 other designers/stylists} 6 custom kandy kones. we were not only to style the cones in a fun and unique way but also fill the kones creativity as well. i was up for the challenge. oh, did i mention that there are two guest judges who will have the difficult job of deciding which kandy kone stylist is the winner of the contest? and, guess who the judges are?[paragraph split]pizzazzerie and bird’s party along with the very talented superchick![paragraph split]i had known for some time that i wanted my little blue and pink goose to make their OFFICIAL printable debut, and i could hardly wait to incorporate them into this challenge.[paragraph split]from there, the “i pick you” collection came to life. duck. duck. goose. i pick you. that would be my theme! this collection would featured both boy {blue goose} and girl {pink goose} printables.

once the theme was decided and the design created, i sent the concept to genevieve. she created the most fantastic kones! i couldn’t hardly wait for the package to arrive.

the kones were perfect![paragraph split]for the challenge of creatively filling the kones, i knew immediately what i wanted to be displayed in each kone. chocolate covered oreos! and, i knew EXACTLY who i wanted to partner with. maria, from love and sugar kisses is so incredibly talented and sweet beyond words. despite her busy schedule and planning her daughter’s birthday party she jumped right on board with me. she created the most lovely oreos along with fondant cupcake toppers with my little goose front and center. each one was a work of art. {and so delicious}

i had so much fun pulling together this photo shoot. of course i wanted to incorporate bright colors, a whimsical feel and little people. so i asked a few of my momma friends if i could borrow their beautiful children for a weekend photo shoot. i was delighted that they all agreed!
