Woo Hoo! Summer – I remember summers as a child back in Pennsylvania. I remember laying on the cool green grass in the shade of my grandmother’s big walnut trees. It was a time we got to spend with cousins – playing in the creek, making mud pies, and catching lightening bugs! Another thing I remember is going to a local dairy to get ice cream. This was such a treat! I really miss those summers. This month’s SOTM – ‘Ice Cream Dreams’ reminds me of those cool sweet summer days of my youth.
Some fun things to do with this stamp set –
– Stamp the ice cream cone on to a tan or light brown cardstock. The stamp just the top part (the ice cream scoop) onto fun colors. Cut out the scoops of ice cream and pile them on the cone – do you want 2 scoops or 3?
How about that cute dog or the ice cream truck?
Stamp the ice cream bowl on white cardstock and color it in with ShinHan Touch Twin markers
I made this little 5X7 piece for the cute girls that work at Big Scoops to say thank you for their patience & great attitude when my boys come in the shop. Whenever my boys go in there, Garrett, my youngest struggles to choose what he wants. When we go as a family, I limit him to a small with 1 mix in (he usually tries to cram at least 2 flavors & 2 mix-ins into his small). Who knows what he tries to cram in there when he goes with his brother!
Now that I live in Utah, I don’t get to catch lightening bugs, but at least we can still go get some great ice cream. I think the next time we go to Big Scoops I’m going to take some pictures of the boys there – it will be lots of fun to scrapbook our fun times getting ice cream and this stamp set will be fun to add to those layouts.
