BBTB2 Challenge - Sweet Summer Treats

Hi all!

What a week I've had!  Not only did I have my mom in town for a visit but I also had my oldest son, his wife and my almost 2 year old grandson!  OMGOSH is he adorable!  It was one very active extremely fun exhausting week!

I am back with a layout for this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge.  This week we were asked to use a cut of a summer treat - think ice cream, popsicles, strawberries....I chose to scrap some of the many pictures from our trip to see friends in Canada last summer.

I had some fun with this one - I tried something different and free-handed the wavy pieces at the top and bottom of the pages.  With all the commotion I had this week I went for a fairly simple page on this one!

This ice cream cone is from Sugar & Spice - too cute!  One of the things I love about using Design Space is the search feature - I had never even heard of that cartridge - there are too many to keep up with anymore!

This one is from Birthday Bash - one of my long-time faves.  The font is called Candice - it is only a 1 layer font which is annoying - I prefer fonts with shadow layers BUT I liked the look of it so I went with it.  Now if only I could find time to scrap the rest of the pics from our trip - there's a TON!

I had not been on Design Space 3 until this project so it was all new to me.  I hate change!  But there were a few things I really liked - I especially like that all of my saved projects now have a thumbnail - they used to just be a list of names.  I only do basic papercrafting on my Cricut so I won't miss the canvas feature.  Maybe when I have more time to play I can explore the new DS a bit more.

Have a great week and be sure to check out the other great projects on the BBTB2 blog and then make one of your own and link it to our challenge!


  1. The wavey pieces on your layout make it so stunning! I love the pretty colors and papers. The treats look so yummy. You certainly have had a busy week.

  2. Lots of ice cream this week - boy - I sure want some. Great pictures to go with your double layout, everyone smiles when they are eating ice cream. Love the waves in the pink hues.
