You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Ice Cream Month Challenge at Exploring Cricut

Welcome.  Our challenge this week is based on the fact that it is Ice Cream Month.  Create a card, layout or project that fits the theme.

I remembered a shop that used to make "the kitchen sink".  It was a sundae for a party served in an actual kitchen sink-lots of flavors, toppings, fruit;  I think it served 25 people.  My sunday isn't that big, but big enough.

I used the Pagoda cartridge for the bowl (love this one) and the cutouts from it for a little decoration on the side.  I couldn't find the ice cream I wanted so the scoops, believe it or not, are turtle shells from Create a Critter.  The bananas came from there, too; I just trimmed off the sides that made it look like a peeling banana.  The 'whipped cream' is from the top of an ice cream cone in the Best of 2007 cartridge; and the spoon is from the baker accesories in Everyday Paper Dolls.  Some goodies from my stash (I forgot I had this ribbon) and here's my yummy celebration of Ice Cream Month.

Please come join us at Exploring Cricut to see more inspiration, then enter your interpretation of the theme to join in the fun.

Thanks for stopping by; keep cool.

  1. I used to get one of those ice creams, but Friendly's called them the Jim Dandy...five scoops of any tpe of ice cream. That is all I would need to eat all day. Super scrumptious!

  2. Looks good enough to eat! Great job.

  3. Oh my gosh! I so love this Rae Ann!! I love all the different elements you used to make your ice cream scoops!! Awesome card! :)

  4. Awesome job Rae Ann!! Great take on the use of the turtle shells and the negatives from the bowl! Well done!

    Have a wonderful day!

  5. Wow, you really out did yourself! How creative making your own scoops! Love the kitchen sink story too.

    1. Thanks for all these great comments. They made my day.
