The Island Creamery (an 8.5x11 layout)

Feeling inspired by the many gorgeous 8.5x11 pages of Jen Gallacher, I decided to add another to my scrapbook.
The photos in this layout are from a few weeks ago when we decided to stop for ice cream after going to the beach (on Chincoteague Island). The base of this layout is kraft cardstock on top of yellow swiss dot cardstock. I punched one section of the kraft cardstock with my Binding Edge punch by EK SUCCESS. The colorful striped pattern paper and cloud pattern paper are both from Echo Park's Hello Summer collection. The heart pattern paper is from the My Little Shoebox Happy Go Lucky collection. I used some Smash washi tape and Doodlebug twine to add a bit of different texture. The title is spelled out using small alpha stickers from Echo Park's This and That Charming collection and Glitter Thickers.
The little icecream cones (so adorable, right?) were cut out using my Silhouette Cameo.

And I am so sorry for the low quality of my photos as of lately! My DSLR is in the shop right now due to an issue with it's shutter. I'm like a lost puppy without it! Using a point and shoot has never been so painful.

Thanks for peeking at my blog today!
