This is my 6th and final project for the September Edition of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.
I will be going on vacation soon and will not have time to scrap any more for this challenge (if any).
I made 7 last month so w/ one week to spare before the end, I feel like I did pretty good creating 6 layouts this month!
This is a 2 pager in my "Food Themed" Travelers Notebook.
It contains lots of journaling!
"Rolled Ice Cream"
"July 29th, 2018 -
David and I tried rolled ice cream for the first time... and I loved it!
This one is "The Chocolate Monster": Chocolate Cake, Nutella, and Kit Kat - Number 9 on the menu at "The Roll Ice Cream" in Huntington Beach.
I loved the flavor and the texture; the fact that you could chew it a bit before it actually started to melt.
I wasn't a fan of the price though: $7.99!*
IDK if that's the going price or if it's because it's by the beach but yikes!
Anyway, something I would definitely have again, just not very often.
What Is Rolled Ice Cream?
Choose your ice cream and add-ins. The liquid ice cream is added to an anti-griddle that chills anything that touches it to (-)4 degrees farenheit. The toppings are then mashed in and just as it all begins to freeze, it's spread into thin layer which is then rolled up and added to a cup. More toppings can be added on top.
Originated in Thailand."
The description of how rolled ice cream is made was paraphrased from an online article; shortened/re-phrased in a few places to help make it fit in my condensed space.
*TBF - the price includes unlimited toppings.
But you wouldn't be able to tell by mine because I kept my toppings minimal...
as a person who suffers from anxiety, when I have too many choices I panic and wind up choosing...nothing, LOL
Coincidentally my very first counterfeit challenge layout for this month included a photo of this ice cream also:
As much as I loved this layout, I felt like I wanted to explain more of what exactly rolled ice cream was, especially after I had a lot of inquiries.
So, I printed another copy of the photo, yes I scrapped the same photo twice, and added a few bits and pieces from my kit, some doodling, and a whole lot of journaling!
BTW - if you recall I was contemplating replacing the "mangled" sticker on my 12x12 layout...
I wound up doing it... it just bugged me WAY too much!
The rest of the stickers will be used so it's not exactly like I wasted money.
Besides, my sanity is priceless, LOL
