The Domino Effect - Candy Shoppe Designs

Candy Shoppe Designs newest challenge is now live and waiting for you to play along! This week we are focused on Games. Thus titled The Domino Effect. You are being asked to incorporate a game piece into your creation in any way you wish. There are so many pieces to choose from, so this should be fun! Try a bingo card, a domino, a playing card. If you are looking for inspiration then make sure to check out what the Lollipop girls have created for you on the CSD blog! And we have a guest Designer this week who has created one awesome tutorial. Check it out here.

You love playing games, right? In our family we have family game night ever Sunday. It's the perfect way to spend some quality family time and have some fun while purposely trying to loose so that our children can win...yep, that's how we do it in the Oxford house hold. Game nights are for the kids, not us parents! lol But Momma Oxford decided that since I can't win the games, I might as well wear them! For this Challenge I decided to create a Game Piece Necklace using scrapbook supplies and game pieces (of course). I love funky jewelry, the weirder the better. So I plan on rockin' this necklace and enduring all the weird looks from on goers! Believe it or not a lot of planning went into the elements on this necklace. May be cheesy to some, but it's love for me ;)

*Scrabble O- Oxford
*Emerald chandelier- Irish is awesome
*Crafty Melissa Frances paperclip- because being crafty is cool
*5 dice- There are 5 Oxford peeps
*Monopoly house- Represents our home
*Monopoly Thimble- I love to sew
*K charm- For my 3KO's. K is my favorite letter ever
*Key- Key to my diary from when I was younger, so represents memories to me
*Bingo marker- Next month I will be 28

**The frame was a pink metal frame (I think Making Memories from back in the day) that I painted black then glued a Jenni Bowlin mini bingo card into. The little Monopoly man I printed offline and placed into a vintage frame. I then used crackle accents to give him more of a finished look**

Come on over to Candy Shoppe Designs and show us that you've got game! I would love to see what you create!
