This layout is from our spring break trip to Disneyland and CA Adventures. We had such a good time. We went to ride the Carsland racer ride, but it broke down just as we got to the racing part. They had to walk us out -- so we got a few "behind the scenes" photos that most people don't get. I took inspiration from several challenges for this one:
Club CK's Issue Challenge #5 to use a prop -- my snippet from the CA Adv. map that describes the ride and the signs I found online and printed off. I suppose the cars themselves could count as props too, yes?
Club CK's Weekly Challenge to use photos that aren't great -- mine are slightly out of focus and not lighted perfectly, but it was a great story to share.
Club CK's April Color Challenge -- Green, Yellow and Gray -- The green is easy to see in my layout, the yellow in the signs and in the hexagon paper on the left page under the plaid, and all the photos are matted with gray.
The 2 Broke Girls sketch got me started on the left side and then just added the right side to it. Loved the arrows. Knew I wanted to incorporate them some how and then....
the blog hop over at Skrap N' Chat was all about masks or stencils. So I made my own arrow mask on my Cricut and used that.
And last -- but not least, in fact this challenge inspired me to print off these photos in the first place - Child's Play Challenges inspired us with Matchbox cars.
I love the online scrappy world and how I can draw inspiration from so many places and have it all come together.
