Touch a Truck!...

Trying to keep the momentum going on the old scrapbook -- this page is for an event that happened in MAY of last year! I am afraid my scrapbooking energies are waning, so the challenge at Simon Says Stamp to create Anything BUT a Card is helping me out. Also, it's another chance to use my favorite new tool, the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, which has become my go-to way of attaching my journaling to my pages.


My son's pre-school hosts a street fair where kids can climb all over a bunch of different vehicles, and he had a blast, especially on the UPS truck (shhhh! I enjoyed it, too!) I tried to use something in my stash that I haven't used in a while and I was so happy to find my Inchies. They gave me just the right amount of dimension and fit in perfectly with the clean lines I was going for. I was also inspired by the 2Peas Stretch Your Sketch Challenge -- this time, I mirrored the photos to suit my needs. I hope you are all having wonderful days!
