Scrap the Boys DT - Jan 2019 Summer Treats

Hello Scrappy Friends, welcome back to my blog today 
where I'm sharing a DT layout for
Scrap the Boys

This mood board had me longing for ice cream in a cone, and I had the perfect photos for this challenge.

Mr Mojo had disappeared with the Christmas wrapping, so I flicked through some of my albums, found a page that I'd created a while ago, adapted it to suit my photos and things fell into place.

My punches came out for a play to border the photos.  The "Train Edge" is by Martha Stewart and the "Upper Crust" is by Fiskars. 

The background paper is from Simple Stories, 
the Summer Days collection, "Soak up the Sun".

The little heart embellishment is from Pink Paislee.

I've tucked two flairs in at the top, "Note this" is from A piece of Cake designs and the Camera flair is from Basic Grey.

The little ice cream cone and the flamingo on the other close up, are both from Cocoa Vanilla, Endless Summer collection, "This and That".

I found this cute, free, cut file at Paper Issues.

I hope you will feel inspired to play along and be eligible for a prize.

I appreciate your kind comments and so enjoy reading them.  Thank you.
