VSN Weekend!

It's been forever since I joined in one of the VSNs over on Splitcoast.  So I was excited to get home from work today to start the weekend with some crafting!!  Woot!!

A fun challenge to kick off was Judi's "Summertime Foods We Love" challenge.  I went with "ice cream" as a Summertime fav and the cute little Denami Designs image.  Colored it in with Copics, added Stickles to the cherry and cone, and Crystal Lacquer to the scoops!  The sentiment is a Basic Grey rub-on.

This window box was for the 2nd VSN challenge -- Summer Breeze:  "Use a window as a style element or focal point."  So I made a window box using a Bigz Shaker Box Sizzix die and SEI Dill Blossom DP.  Punched a SU Scallop circle and snipped the petals, folded it in half and sponged the edges with a little brown ink.  I punched an oval and cut it in half and glued it to the back of the folded flower so it poked out just a tad.  I doodled the center of the flower and then bent the petals up a little for dimension.  I adhered the flower to the layered square then drew a stem coming out from the bottom.  Viola!
