Sweet Treats layout (for Exploring Cricut)

Who screams for ice cream?  Everyone at my house, that's for sure!  Our Exploring Cricut challenge this week is celebrating National Ice Cream month, with the challenge being to use ice cream or a popsicle on a project.  I went with ice cream-we make a lot of homemade ice cream at our house.  We've worn out the ice cream freezer, in fact, and I'm shopping for a new one!  Homemade double dutch chocolate, strawberry with chunks of strawberries, or sweet delicious vanilla- it's all SO yummy!

My layout (for some birthday pics of us eating ice cream) uses the Birthday Bash cartridge for the title, ice cream sundae, and banners.  I added some Diamond Glaze here and there for extra shine.  The paper is from the Carta Bella Cool Summer collection.

the whole layout:

doesn't the pink paper look yummy with the Diamond Glaze?
