Read. Learn. Achieve!

Good Monday morning all! I hope you had an amazing weekend! Mine was pretty status quo but Kyler did leave for camp yesterday so the house is pretty quiet right now.

Just a quick little post for you today. I've been playing around with some SVG's and doing a couple of challenges from a couple of company's that sell SVG and this is one of those challenges. The challenge from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs was to use one of their ice cream files (yesterday was national ice cream day) to make a tag. Well, I morphed my tag more into a bookmark. Since I was making this for Kyler to use I made the background green like he likes and the ice cream is all chocolate. The fabulous sentiment is from Doodle Pantry's Book Worm set (isn't it nice how sometimes the sentiment makes the project?). I just added some doodling around the tag, white gel pen and clear star gelly roll to the ice cream and then sponged around the vanilla cardstock so it wasn't so bright and called it done. I think he will like it especially when I attach an actual value to it. I'm going to tell him if he gets a certain amount done in his workbook (yes, he still has to work through a workbook in the summer) then I'll take him for ice cream/frozen yogurt. I think he'll do it anyway but this is a nice addition.

Alright, there it is. Tomorrow I have a super cute Rhubarb card to show ya! Have a wonderful Monday!

Awesome idea,Lorie! I'm hoping now that I am back home to get more time to create. That is until the next trip in August. Summer has been so busy. Awesome tag! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Lorie... wow, I've got a ton to catch up on! :) This is awesome! I love SVG's now and wish I had more time to use em. This sentiment is perfect and love that MANY of Doodle pantry sets come complete with sentiments, digis and even papers. Hope you had a great week... we did! I just need to get back into the swing of things and get crafty again--after I get the house back in shape that is! Ugh! :(
