Dairy Queen Pages for MMD Divas

The cousins were here during the 4th of July Week and we thought we'd take them to one of our favorite hang out spots before going to see BRAVE. Dairy Queen Double Cheese Burgers, Fries, and a Sundae, how can you go wrong?

Dairy Queen never fails to disappoint, especially when you have five kids on a sugar high hanging out on the patio where their laughter competes with traffic and not grouchy patrons conversations!

Had to make two pages, obviously as my sis in law might want one too.

I convinced her to get a pedicure and meet one of her old bffs for lunch while I took the kids out for some fun. It was our birthday gift to her! Happy Birthday Jennifer, if you are reading this since I opted to publish this layout today just for you. Here is hers. I opted to use a banner on hers as she stated she was "out of it" as far as scrappin' goes and banners are in right now, as far as I can tell. Who says I'm with it either, LOL?

Had a great sketch to work from made by the amazing Heather over at Miracles Momma Designs.

Just a little close up of my handmade sundae embellishment. I really wanted something cool to put on this page, but was coming up short. Found the old advertisement on-line so used that for my title. I made my own sundae and spoon using my Silhouette and some hand cutting for the ice cream itself. 

The piece was pretty intricate, but using some Ranger silver alcohol inks really made me happy about the dish. I added in some double sided tape under it to told it together and get the glitter to stick.

LOVE how it turned out. 

Here is the one from the second page. You can see a bit of the long spoon sneaking in there too. 

Used up some of the last of my Scraptastic Kit from June that was so lovely with the bright colors. And here in this photo you can see some stamping to make that burlap texture. It was a stamp I made myself with the MagicStamp Foam Block from ScrapFriends.
Hope my sis in law LOVES her page and gets a nice three scoop Sundae for her Birthday!
