Sweet Marnie {CS 175}

Our sketch at Creative Scrappers this week is a very interesting and fun one! I just love playing with sketches (especially Creative Scrappers sketches) because it gets me trying out new designs that I wouldn't have thought of. The vertical design, broken up by the horizontal strips, is something I haven't tried before.


Our team did a fundraiser for our field trip last spring where we scooped ice cream for Marble Slab Creamery, and one of my teammates and I stayed after for an ice cream and I took some pictures. I thought these pictures would be fun for the sketch since it called for two photos. I journaled on the back some of the fun memories about why I love working with Marnie.

I used the Saltwater Taffy kit from Noel Mignon to make this page. I thought the colors were perfectly ice-creamy. I couldn't for the life of me get a good picture. It's been raining for almost a solid month here, so I had to take a picture in my kitchen. Grrr...


Here are a few details. I discovered the little Lily Bee banner stickers looked sort of like ice cream cones after I had them stuck down and and added some of the flowers. I hate when those revelations happen after the fact! The cute little birds were cut out of an Echo Park paper. I added outlines with a pen.


The Thickers are so sparkly and fun! I broke out some old Primas. Gosh, I only have 3 of those little milk bottles, but I still have loads of those flowers!


Go check out what the rest of the team made with this fun sketch, and play along! You have until Friday to play along for the September prize (see details on the Creative Scrappers blog).

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!

Your layout is scrumptious! The colours are ice-creamy...I totally agree, plus those gorgeous letters look as if they are sugar coated. Love the way you created your ice-cream embellies in the bottom right corner, and the pearl swirls look like sprinkles...it all looks yum!
