the getaway car

This month Child's Play Challenges is asking us to use a tire swing as inspiration. Since I'm working on our wedding scrapbook the tire made me think of the pictures of our old Isuzu Rodeo all decorated up by our friends and family at our wedding. Luckily lots of people took pictures of our Rodeo and passed them on to me. As I laid them all out to decide on which ones to scrap I realized I could use almost all of them to make the shape of our s.u.v.:
See it?
I cut some clouds from white cardstock and punched 2 pictures with my circle punch to make tires.

I only used my corner rounder on the "spare tire." Get it? This is how I entertain myself.

I would also like to point out the top picture. Looks like all of our guests are there on the sidewalk behind the Rodeo. I wish whoever took that picture asked everyone to turn around but I can actually tell who some of them are by the backs of their heads.

I used my fancy edge scissors for the journaling strips, which I tried to make look like the exhaust coming out the back. I put washi tape under die cut heart ribbon and held it together with yellow staples to make a freeway of love.

I know that the trashing of our car took contributions from at least 5 different people all operating independently. When I look at these pictures I feel their love again as they worked to make our day special.

P.S. Only 4 pages left to my goal!
