For my inspiration, I chose the first two photos. I won the Cherry-O kit from Close to My Heart last Summer at an all day crop and still had a few whole sheets and lots of scraps left, so I knew they were the exact ones I wanted to use. I mixed in some orange Doodlebug paper to mimic my daughter's dress and the colors of the popsicle. I LOVE having Thickers, but the "standard" letters don't last very long around here, so I have to come up with ingenious ways to get the letters I need. "E"s are usually the first to go, so for my "e" in popsicle, I turned an "m" sideways and chopped off some of the length. I was also missing "t"s in my white foam letters so I took a couple of "L"s and "I"s to remedy that situation! :) I'm not really sure how that flower is going to survive in my album, but I really love it. It's one of the flowers that I created for Flower Fabrication Fiesta this past week at Club CK. And of course I added some paint drips, for a fun touch of a melting ice cream!
