Challenge time at Exploring Cricut

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! Yea, it is National Dairy month in June and at Exploring Cricut we have a challenge. You are to make a card, layout or papercraft using some form of ice cream or popsicle. Link your project by Saturday, June 8 and you must follow guidelines on blog page side bar, just use your cricut and cricut cartridges. For my project I made a layout of my two favorite little girls, Mary-Kate and Peyton, my beautiful granddaughters. They love ice cream so much and when Mary-Kate came for her birthday sleepover, we went to the dairy queen. I used the cartridges Sweet Shop and Chalkboard Font which is available to try for free in Cricut Craft Room. Even though I do not care for CCR, sorry PC, love everything else, I tried it. I used the extended font and shadow, but glad I did not do small letters with all the pieces that had to be glued, but I did like it.  Sorry for glare on picture, but has been cloudy here the last couple days and hard to get a good picture.  Below are the details. Please join us for the challenge.  Stop by and see all the great projects the DT created for your inspiration.
Sweet Shop-ice cream cones cut at 4.5 inches.  I ran the tops through the divine swirl cuttlebug folder and I ran the bottom cone through the houndstooth folder.
Chalkboard Font- used Extended font and shadow cut at 2 inches and I highlighted the small pieces around the letters with yellow stickles.
Paper-Stampin Up
Cardstock-Stampin Up and Recollections
Punch-Martha Stewart
Cuttlebug Folders-Houndstooth and Divine Swirl
Other Materials-stickles, and chalk
