Ice Cream Cone album, Ice cream Sandwich Cake and GIVE AWAY!

Happy Weekend!

Summer is in full swing here in PA!  Hot, hazy & humid...let's enjoy some ice cream!

I've seen this sweet Ice Cream Cone Album all over Blogland and decided to give it a try!

My Mind's Eye papers (Blush)

8 inches high x 4.25 at the widest part!

This was super fast to make using my Cricut to cut the circles!
The cone is a circle cut @ 11 inches,
the ice cream is four circles cut @ 4.25 inches.

I scored the 11 inch circle into 8 even sections. Look at your open scored circle as a compass, with a north & south, east & west. Those are the lines we'll concentrate on.  Pull your east line in to meet your north line, then your south to meet your north and finally your west line to your north line. Now close all sections to one side & you have an album. Need a visual? Here's one by Virginia Nebel! 

Won't this ice cream cone album be fun to finish with photos & embellishments?  Read on!

Here's a yummy recipe, an Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
crushed Oreos & cherries!
Want to make one?

You can use any type of pan, I used a loaf pan this time.
Place a layer of sandwiches on the bottom of the pan, I lined mine with wax paper for easy release! 

Spread a thin layer of hot fudge.

Next layer, spread whipped cream (Cool Whip).
Repeat layers to fill your pan size!
Freeze for four hours!

Frost with more Cool Whip & Serve!

If you're hopping with us today, you should have arrived here from Ashley's blog!  If you need to start at the beginning for all the details, hop over to Joy's blog, Joy's Life!
