Fun at the Scrapbook Expo

Pin It
Had a blast last weekend at the Scrapbook Expo. On Friday I did some shopping but spent most of my day and night scrapbooking. The best deal of the day wasthe $35.00 AMM Tote Bag I bought. It was filled with grungeboard by Tim Holtz and tons (and I mean tons) of bling and stamps by Heidi Swap. I love it all and can not wait to use it! So here are a few layouts I created.
Pool Fun uses the Creative Memories Tropical Page Addition Kit. Cute- huh?

Check out those HUGE chipboard brackets...Fabulous!

This was a Home Tweet Home Kit I purchased at the Expo. Just changed it up to be For the Birds. Also added lots of ink and goggly eyes on those adorable birdies.

This Storytellers Club Kit is so fun. I added that funky chipboard border at the bottom. Used a really pretty sparkly ink to make it stand out.

30 cards in 30 days

Pin It
I decided to join YMBD's September Challenge. The challenge is to make 30 cards in 30 days. Each day has a certain item that your card must have. On the above cards I had to use eylets, chipboard, a star, and a bow.
These cards I had to use a tag, a flourish, a heart, and a tree.
For these cards I had to use bling, brads, a decorative border, and I had to emboss something. The dark green background in dry embossed with a flowery design.
On these cards I had to use stripes, ink, a 3-D sticker, and a digital stamp.
Thanks for looking and Stay tuned for more cards soon!

Ice Cream Layer Dessert

Pin It
My crop on Saturday was a blast! And this dessert received RAVE reviews so I thought I would share it with my fellow bloggers. I can't take credit for it though. I found it through YMBD's discussion boards.

Ice Cream Layer Dessert

12 ice cream sandwiches
10 oreo cookies
1 large container cool whip defrosted

Take your oreos and crush them. Set aside. In a large bowl Combine pudding mix with milk. Mix 2 minutes until creamy. Fold in 1/2 container cool whip. Then fold in oreos. Place 6 ice cream sandwiches on a platter. Add chocolate mixture on top. Then top with remainder of ice cream sandwiches. Frost with the rest of the cool whip and add sprinkles.
Freeze for 30min to an hour. Slice and Eat! YUMM-O
