Slurping 101, a.k.a. Soft Serve


I did the layout above in record time. Well, for me. I scrap rather slow. I tend to over think things, which ends up in a lot of staring and re-doing. Not tonight. Slapped this sucker together in a couple of hours. Sewed, stamped, journaled and adhesed. Adhesed? Probably not a word...I tend to make up my own words. I didn't have a choice in how long to take. The challenge (Davinie's challenge to use a Studio Calico stamp on a project) was due by midnight. I had a couple of weeks to do it, but you know I seem to like last minute projects. The layout is about my trip to DQ with Jake. He normally gets a Blizzard, but in the car announced he wanted something new. He decided on a chocolate dipped soft serve ice cream cone. The kid was in heaven. On the drive home all I heard was slurping and MMMMing. Once home I looked in my rearview mirror and saw one happy boy with a huge smile on his face, which was covered in melted chocolate and ice cream. He's ten. Opportunities like this don't happen often and he even let me take a photo. Awesome.
