Strawberry Summer

There's nothing I love better than fresh strawberries. OK... let me say with the exception of strawberry shortcake! I LOVE strawberry shortcake! I think it is all the whipped topping and sugar... lol... While vacationing we had a chance to take in a local strawberry festival and boy did they have some good eats!

Inspiration struck... and I dug out some pretty designer paper I had in my stash and went to work... Why is it food is always so INSPIRATIONAL? I guess that extra 20 pounds means I have been really inspired lately... bwaaaahaaaaa...
