PDE 52 Tags in 2012 Challenge #29

Hi Everyone!  Today is "Challenge" day over at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges and if you would like to see my Design Team Sisters magical creations, click HERE!  The theme for this week is "What is your favorite summer treat?"

Janis will also have the winner of Challenge #28 on her post so make sure you check it out!  You can also get lots of great inspiration for summer treats!  I like to see what everyone's favorite treat is during the hot summer days.

My Dad served in the military when I was a child so he was gone most of the time.  But when he was home, he would take us "to town" in the old pick up truck to the local drugstore and buy us sundaes.  I remember my sister and I sitting on the tailgate while Dad drove the old gravel back roads to town and we would sing songs all the way to the drug store.  Back in those days, we would ride in the back of the pickup or on the tailgate.

I chose to use the Cricut cartridge "Nifty Fifties" for the is cut at 2.75 inches.  I glittered the cherry and the strawberry sauce above the glass.  The sentiment, "I love summer" is from a Studio G stamp set I purchased a few years ago.   The tag measures 5 inches and is cut from the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge.   That old drug store had the best soda fountain!  The ice cream was homemade...and the glasses were always cold and frosty.  No styrofoam cups and "prepared mix" ice cream...this was the real deal and I sure miss it!

Our sponsor for this week's  prize is a $5 gift certificate at Ginger Snap Scraps!  Woo Hoo!  There are lots of goodies available so be sure to check it out HERE!
