Remember as kids on a hot day it was music to your ears, (literally) when you were out side playing under the sprinkler, pulling bindis out of your feet with no sunscreen or hats, when you could hear in the distant streets the first tinkle of the ice cream van's Greensleeves music... racing inside and begging Mum to rustle up any spare coins quickly as you scrambled back outside in your thongs (as in footwear!!!), running down the street chasing the ice cream van, tripping over in your thongs (footwear again girls...) and scraping your knee but knowing if you didn't keep running you would miss out.... and only stopping to cry and mop up the dirt and blood off your knee once that cool ice cream was in your hand.... and you could use the sticky napkin wrapped around the cone to wipe your knee... slowly walking back home (or limping) with the cool sticky bright coloured goo dripping down your arm.... ah... those were the days .... so with those thoughts in mind... I created this LO for the girls as a GUEST CANDY STRIPER! Thanks Girls!!
I used all the pretty soft colours I could find and found this cute BG ice cream one in my stash.. More BG papers, some cute vintage cards and trims from a kit from WIOIN, some Ysweet vintage doilies and some of my own and one of my own flowers - that kind of looked like ice cream.... oh... and a sticker I stole from my daughters sticker sheet (shhh)
cant believe there aren't any close ups.... not like me.... must be this pain coming from my scraped knee!
Lastly - thanks to all you girls who stop by and leave lovely (and sometimes strange and amusing..) comments here ... they always make my day :)
Gotta go find a band-aid... :( and a Mr Whippy van... and takeoff these thongs... FOOTWEAR!!
See ya.. please leave a comment... I am begging...
