Ice Cold Snowballs

With a coat of bright orange paint, it's pretty hard to miss. For about 8 months now, it's been taunting us, windows closed, umbrellas packed away. But when the flags start flying and the menu board makes it debut outside, the snowball stand beckons. And you know that summer is not far away. We enjoyed our first snowballs last week, but I recently scrapped a couple of photos from last summer, which feature one happy camper with his ice cold treat.

I used the Abstract Angles cut file from The Cut Shoppe Etsy store and lots of paper scraps to create my fun and colorful background:

There were two great photos that I wanted to include on the page. In the first one, my son is trying to decide on a flavor.  In the second, he's prepared to enjoy his concoction. The smaller second picture was cropped, mounted to a tag and strategically placed over an empty spot in the larger photo. 

A patterned paper and baker's twine banner mimics the one draping the snowball stand in my photos:

Cardstock letter stickers spell out the title:

I love this cut file and can't wait to try it again: monochromatic with shades of the same color or with a riotous mix of color, with all the openings filled in or with only some of them backed by patterned paper. There are so many options, it's going to be hard to decide...kinda like choosing a snowball flavor! ;)
