Ice Cream, Ice Cream We All Scream For Ice Cream, Challenge and Blog Hop!

Hey there everyone and what a Beautiful Monday Mourning it is, Hot but Beautiful. I love to get up early and go out and water my plants, feed the dogs and watch my Hummingbirds and then it just gets to unbearably hot and I'm done for the day being outside! LOL
Well you all know Mondays bring new challenges over at BBTB2 and this is the last weekend of the month and that means BLOG HOP also! Well my fellow Amazing Design Team Sister Krista picked this weeks challenge and it is to use the Ice Cream Cone from the Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge. Let me tell you a bit about my layout and card then we'll get to the Blog Hop. So here goes:
First of all, like I said earlier, we were to use the Ice Cream Cone from Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge (now remember if you don't have SYI use ANY Ice Cream Cone from the numerous carts out there) Well I got two done because I wanted to do a triple decker Ice Cream cone card and it just wouldn't work the way I wanted so I decided to make another layout (you can never have enough layouts, LOL) Now if you notice the top scoop is where you will add your journaling (it lift's up for your thoughts) The scoops are embossed and stickled to give it some sprinkly sparkles and also there is a bit of bling too (you know I Love the bling and sparkle!) The center brad is also glittered to attach the flower for a bit more dimension (it was kinda bare and I can't stand bare, LOL) Paper is Martha Stewart and DCWV (older stuff) Corners are my favorite Sizzix corner punches, and also added a "paper ruffle" to the layered Martha Stewart punch border.
Now the card is just an extra and done basically the same as the layout cone and you can also lift up and write your message on the inside. Now on to the BLOG HOP :
Now if you got here from the amazing Penny's Blog your on the right track. The beginning starts here so make sure you didn't miss anyone. And we have a treat for you this hop, Regina will be joining us and she is your next stop on the Hop. Regina is the founder of the original BBTB and it is a treat to have her join us this week! Hope your having fun and all you need to do to win my bit of blog candy is to make sure you are a follower (I will check, Hee Hee) leave a comment with a way to contact you (only one will do, but a must have, LOL) and I'm sorry but only US residents (shipping issues). There is also a challenge over at Frosted Design which is a "Song Lyric Challenge" and having a young child (McCade) and Granddaughter's (Molly and Maddie) I watch my share of Kid TV! Well Hannah Montana has a song called "Ice Cream Freeze" and you can watch the YouTube video here. (And yes it is a kid's song but anyone of you that have kids watch your fair share of Kids TV! LOL) Now for the women out there that LOVE Keith Urban (Yes I LOVE Country music, always have!) here is a video form Keith called "Sweet Thing", Love it, what a "Sweet" song, LOL! Two totally differant genre's of music, LOL! So as I was doing this layout I thought of both of the songs soooo.... (I know kinda corney, but what can I say, it goes with the songs, and like I've said lots of times, I'm kinda corney! LOL) Hope you had fun and Thanks for visiting and as always Love the comments and I will close this all on Aug. 1st and let you know who has won. Have a Great week!
Froggie ((Hugs)) Theresa
Sorry for the delay, here's my candy (and I may throw in a few more goodies if by any chance I hit 200 followers this week! LOL) Thanks for your understanding!

My Scrap Diary said...

I really love the idea of adding the journaling spot to the ice cream itself. It let's you focus on other elements of the LO. Thanks for the great idea & blog candy.

Leinad said...

Love, love, love your super sweet layout! I'm relatively new to this blogging world, recently started my own, but I had found your blog a couple weeks back and became a follower. You do great work!! The embossing and sparkle on the cone is just perfect, but the fact that there is hidden journaling puts it over the top - great idea! And I love those corners, might have to look into getting that! This will be my first blog hop, thanks for introducing me to that too!
