Thank you for visiting my blog! This weeks' Heart2Heart Challenges theme is "Life Is A Highway". When I think of this theme, it reminds me of the 1974 Pontiac Firebird that my husband restored. This car was his older brother's car and when he got the opportunity to acquire it, he just had to restore the vehicle. Keeping the vehicle in the family was very important to Simeon, he remembers taking rides in the car with his brother when he was a young child. The photos I used on this layout were taken at the Chaffey Car Club Car Show where he took the car out to show for the first time.
I created this two-page layout using Close To My Heart's Studio J, if you have not tried it, I highly recommend you do. I am at heart a traditional scrapper because I love to feel the texture of the paper and embellishments. I love the smell of new paper and using the stamps but using Studio J was such a great experience that I will definitely create more scrapbooks using this method as well. Studio J gives us the opportunity to use exclusive paper patterns and the flexibility to make each and every layout our own style.
For this layout I picked the "Manmade" kit and a "Glimpes" pattern. I customized both the kit and pattern for my layout.
