Paper Sundaes - Recipe

Good Morning!  Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday.
Paper Sundaes challenge this week is a recipe.
2 DP, 3 Buttons & 4 Flowers

Our Sponsor this week is 

And I have used A Girl and Her Overalls. Isn't she adorable?!?! 
  I was going to try my friend Annika's tutorial on coloring clouds with Copics, but wasn't brave enough.  If you'd like to try here's her tutorial.  Instead I used a piece of the scallop border punch and chalk ink to create the sky. This was my 1st time trying this technique and I really love the way it turned out.  The photo doesn't do it justice.  It's really more dimensional looking in real life.  I added a little Shimmerz to her hairbows, hearts and the ladybugs.

I've got to family spent the whole day at the beach yesterday with my parents along with my sister and her family.  I'm super tired today.   We had a blast, it was Nathan and Brooke's first time going to the beach.  Can't believe that summer is almost over.  Hope you and your family are enjoying the last little bit of summer together.  xoxo

I do like your clouds - will have to try scallop paper option - I'm not brave enough for the other one either.
Hope you manage some rest. I love Meljen's Designs & have a couple I won in rubber so shall bear the clouds in mind.
