Washington Apple Hot Rods


Every month the Art With Heart team have a scrapbooking challenge (among others!). I'd recently been on a family holiday and was keen to scrap some of the pictures, so I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone.

Every Easter my home town hosts a Hot Rod Rally. It's been going on as long as I can remember. I used to love checking out the cars at the Show 'n' Shine, and then that night the main street would be closed off so the cars could lap the street, giving lucky people a ride int he cars. I was happy to find that it was all still the same after all these years. I can't remember last time I went!

So, here's the sketch:

I had lots of photos I wanted to include in the layout, so I ended up printing them at half size and trimming them to fit. That way I got 4 photos in instead of the 2 in the sketch. Here's the finished layout:

And here's a close up of the car I made:

I was hoping to achieve the look of one of those ginormous old cars - you know, the ones they sing about in 'Love Shack' that are as big as a whale.

DSP/Card Stock: Washington Apple DSP, Bashful Blue, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black Stampin' Write Journaller
Other: Riding Hood Red 5/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, 3/4" Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, Photo Corners Punch, Horizontal Slot Punch, Big Shot, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Dies

If you want the details on how I made the car, leave your email in a comment.
