Oh I just so had to scrap for me today. Yes, I've got work assignments to do for CX, yes, I've got to create some more goodies for Outta This Funk, yes, I need to work with some product for a mfg. that I'd dearly love to be a part of their design team, but wow....sometimes you just gotta scrap for no other reason, than to scrap. Okay, so maybe there was a little extra-cirricular motivation behind this layout which I made for entering into the Utah State Fair in the "automobiles" category.

I just love these photos of my little peanut playing with the wheels on the bus. My favorite photo is the photo on the far right. Notice how the wheel is spinning. Love the motion in that one.

I sure was stewing about what papers to use, cause my local craft store surely has a lack of boyish purple papers. By some stroke of brilliant luck, I was rifling through some papers that sweet Jen Gallacher gave me the other day and this purple was in there. Thank you Relief Society President, for being so inspired to slip that purple paper in with the other goodies! You're a doll! Maybe one day I can be as in tune as you are! ;) Oh wait, then I may be in contending to be a RS President. Hmmmm...maybe I'll just keep my pinky around the iron rod, and keep sitting in the back row of the cultrual hall in Sacrament Meeting. I mean, hey, we've been in the ward for 2 years now and have avoided the invitation to speak! We're doing SOMETHING right. :0)

And of course the title of this layout warraned a trip to Roberts for the purple glitter Thickers. Oh man. If I could have every color and design of Thickers on this planet I'd look like an absolute goof ball from a perma-grin. I mean seriously....have you seen the new metal Thickers? The font is A-DOR-A-BLE! It was all I could do to restrain myself from buying them as well, but alas, my hubby told me to go and spend some money today...well this is how it went.

K: I really want to go and buy some scrapbook stuff
T: How much do you want to spend
K: Oh I don't know...maybe $5. I just want to get some letters for the wheel page.
T: Oh, go ahead, that's fine.

Me: stuff...40% off of all patterned MM Halloween line....cute pumpkin door doohickey hanger thing.....a ghost cookie cutter (don't ask me...that was Aaron's choice, I'm not making cookies), and uh.....$19 later. Oopsies!

Anyhow, wish me luck at the Fair with this one!

Oh you know you are so making cookies! I received a little something in the mail today and I am OVERWHELMED! Thank you so much. My husband couldn't even believe the amount of goodies you sent my way. I love it all. I think my fave is that awesome WRMK chip alpha in the boyish colors...too much! Thanks...thanks...thanks...what more can I say. I could pray that you will never be asked to speak in your ward...I mean common you've had one lucky streak...but it could end. Yeah, that's what I'll do. (PS you could pray that they actually release me from my 2 and 1/2 year run in primary BEFORE I have the baby) Don't get me wrong because I actually love all my little ones that turned eight and got baptized this year, they're amazing, but it might be nice to be amongst women again while I'm nursing. Hee hee.

Sooo cute Kristy! I too have a bit of an obsession with thickers! I am LOVIN the Vinyl ones!

Sheryl said...

Gorgeous LO Kristy. I love those Thickers - and there are metal ones?! Oh dear. And I'm trying to spend less on scrappy stuff.

Jen Gallacher said...

That paper is AWESOME on this layout. I love the metal circle accents. AMAZING!! (And here's hoping that you NEVER have to speak, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time--LOL!)

Michelle said...

Jana said...

Super cute page, like all your stuff. I so hate scrap booking! :( Someday I'll find my talent.

Vicki said...

Fabulous LO, Kristy! I love the colors that you used, and Thickers?, they are the best! Good luck with your entry at the fair!

Becky T said...

LOVE this page! Aren't boys so fun to watch since this all comes SO natural to them?! You are amazing. And oh, how I miss Roberts....and it probably misses me and the big chunks of change I've dropped there on many occasion. Awww.... :)
