Over on UK Scrappers I'm taking part in an altered tag swap and this months theme was 'growing old disgracefully'. My first thought was to look back to my childhood and remember the sweets that I used to enjoy (and still do), like flying saucers, tutti frutti, cola bottles, aniseed balls, spangles.......you get the picture. That's where my little freckled shrimp came in but my idea moved on to using love hearts instead. Good idea in principle but not in practice so I had to be satisfied with using just the wrappers instead. Another of my childhood favourites that's still going strong is Chupa Chups lollies although they don't taste the same today. I recently saw on a TV programme that Salvador Dali designed the logo in the 60's - did you know that? You learn something every day. I also included the song title 'I Want Candy' a song from the 1980's, Annabella Lwin the lead singer with Bow Wow Wow wasn't much older than me at the time and had a very daring haircut.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's take on the theme when I receive them.
What were your favourite childhood sweets?
