Wonderful World of Cars

Its time for another SOUS creation.  This one challenged us to incorporate vehicles into a project.
Being that we are well into our NASCAR season, no better time then now to sit and scrapbook some long overdue photo's.  WOW how time flies... can you say 2003 ?!?!?!!!  I hope I am not alone with the back log of memories just waiting to be revisited.  Bryan and I spent our anniversary in 2003 with a few friends at the Charlotte NC track.   Boy was I spoiled.  As you can tell from the few photos we were hanging out with the drivers.  Yep behind that fence for all you fans ;).   I never knew just how nice their buses were till then.   We were given our own little golf cart to scoot around just about anywhere we wanted to go.  PIT ROW was a first request where I was able to take a few photos with some willing fella's :) ( Go Brown ).   The rains came, as they do often and we were off to the garage where we were able to capture the crews in action.  You would not believe how clean they keep everything!  I was so very impressed and overwhelmed at the generosity of everyone we met.   Oh this is not all of them but its a start.  For these layouts I pulled out the fantastic CARS Cricut Cartridge.  Could there be anything more perfect?  :)  

For the Cars cut, you will see multiple layers, a bit of copic coloring and some sparkle! 
Everything looks better with a little glitter right ?

                                                                      GO BIG BROWN!

Who does not love a bit of Lightning McQueen, you know he always dreamed of being a NASCAR super star :)    Lots of layering but oh so worth it.   Again some glitter to polish him up and a Checkered flag waving the boys around for the final lap.

Perfect Pit stop markers!  as a rain delay brought out a Caution. 
I layered the flags and popdotted to give a bit of dimention.  

My most favorite cut of all.  Wierd I know.  but I jsut love this.  I cut the stop light and popdotted, and colored.  I used for the Red, Yellow and Green glitter paper so it would appear to be lit up a bit.  I also used perfect pearls for the white highlites with in.   I will be using this cut again I am sure. 

And the two page spread.  10 pictures and 7 die cuts on a two page layout.  Whew thats alot for someone who usually scraps a single photo at a time, but boy do I love out it turned out.  
Now head on over to the official SOUS blog for some more exciting vehicle inspired projects!  I think you will be pleasantly surprised by all the different ideas the ladies came up with.
Hugs until next time :)
