Summer. Make it Last.

Pineapple Whip tonight. Summer goodness. Make it last.

And a mini-layout/whatever-ya-wanna-call-it I made for the Moxie It's All Green to Me challenge. Bonus: today I discovered it matches this color challenge, too. If you've never checked out kwernerdesigns, you're in for quite a treat! It's a pretty place.

So, there ya have it--two birds, one stone. Here it is:

The challenge was to use the green theme plus display typography in a unique way. I played in Photoshop today and figured out how to make my words look like an overlay. It's exciting to learn new ways to amp up my digital muscles.

Also fun? Taking care of Mother Earth. I get teased a lot by certain friends over my obsession with recycling (you know who you are, girls).

By the way, the top collage was done by Master Nathan. Looks like he was inspired by my Photoshop effects, eh?

Speaking of that top photo, maybe he was channeling his inner insect or bird instincts, but while we were enjoying our Pineapple Whip treats tonight, Nathan walked up to the window, thought it was open, reached in to get napkins, and -- ouch! Rammed his hand right into the closed window.

Red-faced, he returned to our table saying, "It's SO clean!!" Rest-assured, the teenage kid working at PW is still laughing . . .


  1. I love the "green" layout. Question: what is pineapple whip?

  2. Hey Sara! This is Pineapple Whip: It's a local favorite, sort of like sorbet, but $2 gets you a huge cup. It's fat free and very yummy!

    It's famous for the Whip lady on the stand tops -- her hula skirt shakes. Welcome to the Ozarks!

  3. The glass was clean. It was very, very clean.

  4. This is sooo pretty - love those little poms poms and the beautiful photo. Good job you with the photoshop 'overlay' Jo x

  5. Love your lettering on the picture. Great job with the color combo.

    It's a good life!
