ANOTHER VERY STRONG SHERPET STYLED IMAGE HERE....
Using similar thinks like SWEETS, and arranging them into this patterned format is very similar tosome of my Sherpet images...WELL THOUGHT OUT and DNE as anything like this takes a long time... I also like how some of the lollies overlap the inner borders re the boxes the lollies are placed in...

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_700559.jpg AWESOME

THANK YOU for entering this very CLEVER and YUMMY image
from shez with love xox

Thanks a lot. Now I'm hungry.

Fantastic colors and setup. The one change I would make is to not use skittles in two sections right next to each other, but that's a minor thing.

Licorice ALL Sorts! Can't get them in JAPAN, though if judging by my wife's reaction to LICORICE, it's not surprising.
A very APPETIZING tribute to SHERPET, and should do WELL.
