WWW Snackdown 2015 NSD Challenge

I am finally finished with all the challenges for National Scrapbooking Day over at the Cricut Circle Message Board. This challenge was so much fun. Leave it to my crafty friend Jenny, to come up with this cool challenge. We needed to create something with a food theme.

I used a couple of pictures my niece sent me from last year when Kaylee had her first ice cream cone. I had wanted to scrap these for the longest time. I used my Explore, some fun cuts and a font from Design Space, some embellies from Jillibean and my stash. The ice cream paper is from a Recollections stack I picked up last summer. The mat paper is from October Afternoon, and the rest of the papers are from my stash.

I was planning on also entering this into another challenge where we are supposed to add some sewing to a project, but my attempts at sewing was a total disaster. I went with some faux stitching on tags for that challenge. There are some sewing machine dots on the layout on the scalloped border. I went through 3 machines to get those. LOL! I wanted to use my Janome machine that my Mom got me for paper, but the foot pedal was awol. I dragged out the big Singer, proceeded to have trouble with the bobbin and then broke the needle. Finally I dragged a little battery operated machine that is so old it was made by Provo Craft. Anyone remember those?

Here is my layout:

I adore my great niece, so I have been loving creating layouts for and about her.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Happy Crafting!

    I'm still holding a grudge against my sewing machine, so I didn't even attempt to use it. Maybe I should send you MY foot pedal. Ha!
