Ice cream in the park

Well my crafty mojo doesn't seem to be going anywhere at the moment and I like it! This week I've managed to do the weekly challenge over on UKS. This weeks challenge was set by the Scrap Apples who gave us a list of elements from which we had to choose three. The elements were: 
1. Hot tropical or warm summer colours
2. Ribbons or flowers
3. Birds or butterflies 
4. Sparkle and bling
5. Break open new stash after the holidays
6. Use your favourite photo from 2013
7. Ice cream 
8. Sand or water
9. Frame the photo
10. Scrap lift someone else's work

When I saw this list I knew straight away which photos I wanted to scrap. Last year when Jojo and I went to London we stopped and had an ice cream break on the deck chairs in St James's park. I then decided I wanted to use a sheet from the Hello Again collection from Carta Bella which came in a Kit, a collection I love! After pulling a sheet from Amy Tan which matched perfectly I made this layout. 
I couldn't fully decide which other element I wanted to use and as it turned out I went for two, butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch and some bling in the way if sequins. My title is made up from some glitter foam Thickers, stickers from Studio Calico Sundrifter & stickers from Authentique. I also used some coloured doilies from Dovecraft and cut Sparta from Elle's Studio. 


  1. Beautiful layout, love all the colours. Hope your mojo stays around a while longer :)

  2. Really lovely - love the icecream colours you have used and the pink doileys xx
