Cherry Slurpees


My most amazing, wonderful, and awesome blogging friend Chris is taking over the April challenges at Inspired Crafters. She posted a great Sketchy Thursdays sketch for this week. I love their sketches, so I just had to do a layout for it! I'm featuring a photo that I really love! It's Jessica, Emily, and I drinking our big 44 oz. cherry slurpees! A couple times a year, Dave takes the girls to get slurpees. He was out of town on business one week in the summer, and when the girls and I went to get gas in the van, Jessica noticed that slurpees were on special at Speedway! So, she convinced me that we had to get them, and when we got home, we snapped a pic of us drinking them, and we emailed the photo to Dave. He was very disappointed that we went to get slurpees without him! I blamed Jessica, because it truly was all her fault! Anyway, I used my new Cosmo Cricket kit that I got from HSN. I added a cherry brad (I got a package of these as blog candy a long time ago, and I was convinced that I would NEVER use them!), a Jenni Bowlin journaling spot, some Jenni Bowlin round alphas, a Making Memories felt flower, and a button and twine from Papertrey Ink. I also did a lot of ink distressing and sewing! I love the way this turned out! ♥

I hope you had a great week! Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
