Ice Cream: A Sweet Escape

Hello my scrappy friends!  Quick post today as I'm not feeling too well, although much better then yesterday.

Here is a LO of my daughter a few years ago totally enjoying some ice cream, actually, probably too much ice cream!  But heck, we all need to splurge every once in a while, don't we?!?

I used a DCWV stacks for all of the paper.  Glitter Stack, Spring Glitter Stack and Sweet Stack are some of the paper used...I know this since they are still sitting on the floor waiting to be put away!  Some scraps were used for the SU! ice cream sundae bowl in the upper left page.

This yummy LO is being entered into the following:

Let's Scrap Let's Scrap Sketches - 3/15/17 2 page sketch

"Lasting Memories" Scrapbook Layout ChallengesLasting Memories - using 3 different tags - I used the green circle tag on the 2nd page which is chipboard, the hey girl on the first page I made into a tag, and the ice cream sundae tag I made.  The twine has been in my stash for years!

another freaking scrappy challenge ...another freaking scrappy challenge - using chipboard and something old from stash - The green circle tag on 2nd page is chipboard and all of the paper used is old...all DCWV paper.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hello again my scrappy friends!  St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and although my husband, our kids and I don't celebrate like I did as a kid, we still drink green milk and I make cards!  My mom, however, still makes corned beef and cabbage to feed an army (I make just a little for me!) and an army she will have this year!  I think my two sisters, their husbands, two kids, and my family will be joining my parents this year for a yummy Irish feast!  

Here is a card I made for one of my nieces...I need to make another for her sister and perhaps for my kids and my dad.....he is the Irish one!  I used several strips of pps from my stash for various shades of green.  Two Cricut cartridges were used -- Celebrate with Flourish (shamrocks) and Art Philosophy for the scallop banner.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:

Ice Cream birthday card

Hello my scrappy friends!  It's freezing cold here in NJ, about 30*.  Big difference from last week when it hit 73*!  Crazy weather but perfect for baking and eating cake and creating!

Here is a birthday card fro my brother-in-law.  First time using my SU! Cool Treat stamps and dies.  I love them!!  Thanks My Pink Stamper - Robyn Cardon for hosting a class!  I used some pps from my stash and SU! inks for the ice cream colors and sentiments.

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
