A Sweet Summertime Treat of a Challenge
I finally entered my first scrapbooking challenge. I always look at them online and think about doing it, but I decided to jump in this time. I have to say it was a lot of fun. It's a nice break from scrapbooking my day to day stuff. It gets your creative juices flowing! The challenge was on Jinger Adam's, from Provo Crafts, Facebook page. The challenge was to make a layout about enjoying summertime ice cream. The most creative layout will win 10 of the newest Cricut cartridges!!! How awesome of a giveaway is that? So, here is what I created.
The sign says "Sweet treats to beat the heat 50 cents." The mint chip cones and the vanilla cone with glitter is from Indie Art, the chocolate glitter cone and the white cone with sprinkles is from Paper Dolls, and the chocolate cone with a cherry is from Doodlecharms. The little girl is also flying a kite...
I embossed her dress with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and of course I glittered her cone! :) I used my Gypsy to weld a border from Just Because Cards and a square from Plantin Schoolbook. The tree is from Just Because Cards. I love that tree and I have to say it is the main reason I bought that cartridge. There's nothing like a nice big tree to swing in ! This layout was super fun to make and I have to say that I really liked entering the challenge. It was really nice to take a breather from my pics. Now I'm feeling inspired from all of the other entries I saw and I'm ready to get scrappin!
