Cool and Creamy, A Dreamy Duel!

Oh, it's that time of the month again! Yeah! Another duel between the Dueling Darling team Divas and team Dazzlers on the 15th.  For this month our hostesses Barb for the Divas (my team) and Debbie for the Dazzlers chose the theme "Cool Creations"!  Barb sent this absolutely awesome kit super early for the July duel and it was chock full of yummy patterned papers by My Mind's Eye Collectable, delicious ribbons and twine, mouthwatering brads and buttons and the coolest Whipper Snapper image called Haagen-Daz Bear.  There was so much goodness I had a difficult time deciding what to use and after much deliberation here is what I came up with:

Of the 6 sheets of patterned paper I used 3 with and the reverse side of one of the three.  This cute little bear image was colored with Copic markers.  I used the Doodle bug Sugar coated white brads and the pink and green mini brads as accents on the scalloped matt border.  Two of the sugar coated brads I colored with my Copic markers to imitate the colors I used in coloring the ice cream.  It's a little difficult to see but those scoops of ice cream are shiny with Glossy Accents as well as the bear's snout!  I used the two ice cream cone brads to accent the striped panel.  The horizontal banner was wrapped with the baker's twine and accented with a bow made from the yellow ribbon.

I use this sketch by Jen Shults for Viva La Verve:
Our team leaders also requested us to share our favorite Summer Cooler.  I'm not sure if I have a favorite.  Lately I've had a real craving for chilled watermelon.  One of my favorite drinks on a warm summer evening is a Mojito.  I haven't had one in a long, long time so I'm thinking when we go on vacation next week I just might indulge!
