How to eat an ice cream pop


Carina eats everything with her hands....even when there is an obvious, built in solution!  It was amazing, and hilarious to watch her seemingly go out of her way to avoid using the popsicle stick....wait until you see the pictures of her and her birthday cake (which was Carvel).

Anyway, back to the layout, I'm using another Elle's Sketch today.  Since most of the photos are black and white I wanted this to be colorful and a little funky, so I turned to the Glitz Cashmere Dame collection.  LOVE this collection.

In terms of embellishments, I used some Elle's tags, washi tape, and added some stamped accents.  The sentiment stamps are from Mama Elephant's Good Times set, and I'm also sneaking one of CTMH's new sets which will be available on Friday.  This is the set that comes in the Chantilly Collection's Workshop on the Go.

Had a great time putting this one together.  Hope you guys are having a good week...we had a bit of a break yesterday as schools were closed, but it was back to reality today.
