LOAD216 Day 16

Tuesday's prompts are transportation and today it is car.  

I used a sketch from Stuck?! For my 1st LO.  This sketch is the newest February challenge sketch over at the Stuck?! blog.

I stuck pretty close to the sketch but I did flip it as my photo worked better on the right side, the car was pointing right as well as my daughter's outstretched arm.


I used a We R Jen Hadfield "quoted" page kit that I got off one of the daily deals pages awhile back. The grey paper looked similar to tire treads and was a great neutral choice for the largest piece. The red strip is from My Minds Eye My Story line. The scallops are a border strip from the JH sticker sheet. I cut the 4.5" circles from Stampin' up! 6x6 winter wonderland designer vellum stack, it has gold spots on it but I did not want any gold elements so I flipped it over and the gold spots look grayish silver (bonus.)

I had two pictures I wanted to use so I created a flip and added the journaling to the flap.

The title is October Afternoon letter stickers, The green tag was a plain white tag that I covered in green washi tape. The stitched circle is stitched with rainbow thread. The splatters is HS Tinsel Color Shine.

LO 2 for today is Blah winter.


I spent a bit of time on a background texture that can't be seen in these picture or in the close-up shots I took. How sad, it is a shimmery watercolor in silver and is very pretty in person, but you'll have to take my word for it.

The picture was taken 104 weeks ago, according to my Instagram feed.  Turns out that it was February 17th 2014, it took me way too long to figure that out.

I would have liked more variety in the snowflakes but I have only one snowflake punch (Martha Stewart). I was not about to cut any on my Silhouette today. I had spent a wee bit to much time in my scrapbook today as it was.

Thanks for looking.
