My First Wheels! Now I'm Lightening McQueen!


Again this layout was done for Sketches!{by tamara}. The challenge this week was to alter your journalling by color, size, font. Check out the rest of the design teams contributions!

I love this layout. This is Xavier (of course) on his first birthday. Mommy & Daddy bought him a new ride-on toy. I used my cricut for the majority of the layout. The borders on the banner are actually Bazzills - Half the edges. They are 6" long but fit seamlessly together for a 12 x 12 layout.

The race track I designed with my Gypsy. The race car...that was a lot of work. Firstly, those Disney cartridges that have lots of layers. They are really only designed for Wall Decor. The car was cut at 6" and you could not go any smaller as the small layer pieces are just too tiny. Even at that size it was a challenge.
I thought the journalling was cute. Just trying to ready Adam for the teenage years. lol Especially #1 & #3. The "Does It Do Stairs". He'll probably try that with a bike....
Every different color you see is a separate piece.
If you're wondering ... I spend hours on one layout. Some people would say.."She needs a life." I enjoy crafting so much I don't know what I would do if I didn't have it.

Always enjoy your comments and I loved reading yesterday about your wildlife encounters.

Do something for yourself today...

even it it's just for a few minutes....

and don't feel guilty for it....

you deserve it!

I love it, this is so cute. I look forward to when he's much older and can actually appreciate how much time you've put into putting his firsts on paper in a unique way. Just an extra reason he'll know how much Nana loves him!
