washing mommy's car {Sketchy Thursday's GDT challenge}

Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!! I know I am!! I have a layout for you today!! I have been working on it for awhile, and finally got it finished!! I snapped these photos a few months back, and have been waiting to scrap them! Thought this was the perfect time to do it!! Here is my layout:

you are to use a summer theme, red, orange and or yellow, and have a journaling spot

Here are my detailed photos:

I did a lot of handstitching, and also got to use my new Tim Holtz paper edge distresser! I love that little thing!! It is so much fun, lol! I staggered the buttons on top with pop up adhesive to give them some dimension. I am going to enter this into Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge, which is to use buttons!! I think I use buttons on almost all my layouts, so I love this weeks challenge!! :D

For this layout, I used:
  • Cardstock: DCWV SafariKids cardstock
  • Paper: ATD Vibrant, The Paper Studio, MME(Where The Heart Is & Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boys)
  • Ribbon: The Ribbon Boutique and ribbon trends
  • Stickers: MakingMemories puffy alphas, white alpha stickers(unknown)
  • Colorbok chipboard letters
  • K&Company wild saffron Die-Cut Cardstock
  • string
  • acrylic paint
  • SpareParts by The Paper Studio - brads
  • Jolee's All That Bling dimentional stickers
  • Favorite Finding buttons (small orange)
  • square button from stash
  • Magic Scraps:vellum words
Hope you all enjoy and have great day!!
