SO SWEET - TAYLORS SKETCH CHALLENGE

Happy Monday all!! I swear, the weekends are flyin' by these days!! Tyler had his big birthday party on Saturday and I took yesterday to recover, lol!! I had a migraine for a lot of the day, they are no fun and I have to sleep them off! But, I did get a little stamp time in and played with the sketch from Our Craft Lounge stamps, Life is Sweet, they are too cute and I have not inked them up enough! And, ice cream being one of my fave things to eat, I thought this was a good choice! I had fun coloring in my banana split too - and right afterward, Kayla and I had some ice cream and watched one of our shows together, heehee!!! Of course, to this ice cream I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the whipped cream so it would really stand out!! I will leave you with the recipe below since I am off to take the dogs to the vet today - fun times with four of them! And, to let you know, the blog candy winners and the new DT for ScrapandStampSaturday will be announced tomorrow so make sure you check back for that!! Have a wonderful day!

Hmmm ice cream - my favorite meal!! My Grandma and I used to have ice cream for dinner every once in a while. LOL I'd go to visit her and she'd say what do you want for dinner? And of course I'd say "ICE CREAM" and she'd say "YOU'RE ON"! Then we would watch our favorite show together. Too funny. I miss her. Love your card Alex!! Can't wait for the big announcement tomorrow.
