Tooty Fruity

Do you remember Tooty Fruity sweets, I loved them and had a real craving for them when I was pregnant with my son Robert. Does anyone know if they are still around? Apart from the soft, chewy, fruity centre and the hard candy shell it was the pretty colours that they came in that I liked. This is what this layout reminds me of, those candy colours...gosh how many E numbers must of been used in them to produce such wondrous colours.

I made the LO to be entered for the UKS Monthly House Challenge. The problem is that I didn't read the entry details properly and hadn't realised until I had finished it that it should of been a scrap lifted LO. Oh well too late now, I am not going to start again as I like it too much.

I used Bazzil, K&Co, Bo Bunny and American Crafts papers with zingy citrus ribbons from my ribbon stash. The alphabet was cut on the Bigshot using Sissix 'Bug in a Rug' font. When I met some of the other UKS scrappers at Stamperarma last Saturday we were talking about lollipop flowers and all had our own versions, this is mine. I like to crease up the circles and sand them, then offset the circles with a brad in the middle.

Do you think that if I look hard enough I will find a published layout that I can say I scrap lifted it from? I have looked but I think the likely hood of finding one will be pretty slim, don't you?


  1. Lovely LO Alana! You realise though, that I now crave a bag of Tootie Frooties, lol

  2. Never mind the E numbers..I don't think my teeth would cope anymore lol. They were a favourite of mine too. So I love your bright, happy layout!

  3. Tooty Fruity indeed. A lovely fresh layout and you can be sure that I will be looking out for those sweeties when I am next out shopping! PS. I bet Woolworths would have sold them! TFS. ~Glen~

  4. Oooh yes Alana...they were one of my favourites too along with Spangles, now whatever happened to them... you do still get Tooty Fruities... and your LO is gorgeous!!!

  5. OMG I soooooo need Tutti Fruities ... they were yummy! This LO is fab too ... love the lolly pop flowers X

  6. That is such a pretty lo. I really like the patterned paper and the lollipop flowers but I particularly like the photo.
    Very pretty xx
