This project has been in the works since July...LOL!!! I know... "What could possibly take that long??"
On June 20 of this year the AMAZING Norma Lee showcased her Ice Cream Parlour on her blog. My friend Christine called me and asked if I had seen Norma's most recent post yet...when I saw the "Parlour" it was love at first sight!! We just had to do it! So we asked Norma if we could tackle this project for ourselves and her answer was "Of course!"
Have you ever had someone ask you "Why are you doing this...What are you going to use it for?" And my answer is "Just Because"!!! As fellow paper crafter obsessees you get it...LOL!!!
Now as for the "Guru" portion...Norma Lee is my "ALL AROUND GURU"!! Norma's talent knows no bounds! Her ability for combining colours, papers and embellishments...her colouring itself (SIGH)...and her handmade embellishments are OUTSTANDING!! ADD to that her talent for measurements (pun intended)...she must be a mathematician...make Norma an OOBER (love that word) talent!!
So...Norma I thank you for all of your encouragement and sharing during this endeavor and for your continuing inspiration EVERY time that I visit your blog!!
Now for my adaptation of Norma's "Ice Cream Parlour"...
Ice cream cone is from Magnolia...the wording is computer generated...
(click on image for closer look and slideshow)
ice cream flavours also computer generated (thank you Christine)..
Tilda with cherrice and mini Wilma...
Wilma (again)...Tilda with love potion (altered) and Magnolia with butterfly (altered)...
Tilda with ice cream cup...all coloured with my copics
Well that's the parlour!!
AND I have a use for it...my Granddaughters and I are going to start our own "Tilda Town"...I even told them they could make their own pieces for it...can I relinquish total control is the question!!
Can't you just imagine a "Tilda Horton's"!!!
