Just Us Girls #251 - Photo

I'm hosting over at Just Us Girls, and this week is Photo Week.  Where I live summer time is BBQ time.  I have fond memories of all of the past summer parties with family and friends, and the yummy food.  Take a look at this picture and then show us how you are inspired.

Love the banner triangle flag idea we can, have a little table where people can write on them and then hang them up as you walk around you can look at what everyone wrote:))  kind ckassic american bbq decor right?

Here's my card

When my Dad was living, he used to love to make homemade ice cream when we had a BBQ.  My Mom would whip up a wonderful concoction to put in our old wooden ice cream freezer, and then my Dad would add ice and rock salt and would hand-crank until he had this creamy delight.  Sometimes it was plain vanilla and other times it would be fresh strawberry or fresh peach. (His favorite, and mine too.)  So, when I picked this photo I knew I would have to put ice cream on my card.  I used a stamp set from Flourishes called Pinwheels & Popsicles. So tell me, do those of you from other countries do BBQ or backyard cookouts or is this just an American tradition?

The recipe:
Flourishes Pinwheels & Popsicles
Verve Pennant Trim
Spellbinders A2 Modern Stationary
Doodlebug Twine
Fiskars Crimper
Doodlebug Sprinkles

Please visit the Just Us Girls page to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Rebekka, have made this week.  I hope you will want to play along.  We would love to see how you were inspired!

If you win Chic of the Week in any of our July challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of August.  Good Luck!
