How much is too much????

Michelle W started the How much is too much challenge...where you are challenged to use your stash with the weekly challenges. Week 1 challenge is 5 for 5.....5 pp, 5 stamps, 5 epoxy stickers, 5 embellishments and 5 rub ons. I was inspired by the Krispy Kreme Original glazed doughnut that I was eating...had to stop and do a photo shoot. LOL That is my last Krispy Kreme that has to travel hundreds of kilometres to me....Brice is my Krispy Kreme mule who brings me my occasional treat when he comes back from Sydney for work. Yesterday, the first ever Krispy Kreme store opened in now it's only about 20kms for me to go....thank goodness they are far enough to be a regular temptation!!

Trust me when I say you have to try these doughnuts to believe them. For one, I am not a huge doughnut fan....not donut king, not those freshly fried hot jam doughnuts at markets....none of those tempt me in the slightest. But Krispy is sooo light....the texture is more like cake....and it's not oily....I think they're baked rather than fried...and they're not Krispy..and they don't have hee...unless you choose the Kreme filled ones I guess. And these little darlings are still edible the next day...they don't go hard and tough like regular doughnuts. They come in a multitude of flavours...and my favourite has to be the Original glazed and the Custard filled one. Ok....I've worked up a Krispy kreme drool to the next challenge now.

Week 2's challenge is on....can you guess??? Bling bling bling.....have to use 10 different kinds of bling on a layout. I've used Kindy glitz, Kissy fit sequins n brads, frinkles, metallic beading tubes, Prima's Marie Antoinette Crown Jewel (isn't it gorgeous??), HS jewels and many different types, colours and sizes of diamontes. Bring on the next challenge!!
