Car wash

I'm back with my second DT project today, this time for Totally Gorjuss, where our challenge is Boy's Toys. We are sponsored this week by Heather's Hobbie Haven.

We sorted out our photo albums and I have so many photos I want to do layouts for, Unfortunately I only have a couple of photos of my hubby as a little boy and I love this one as it shows his love of cars and in particular keeping them clean, started at a very early age. I took a photo of him a few days ago as I had the idea for this layout. I've given it a distressed look, with lots of torn and distressed edges. The papers are K&Co and Bo Bunny, from various packs. I made the memo page by punching holes and then cutting into each one and adding a Tim Holtz clip. The cogs were made with a TH die and Core'dinations which I heat embossed. I finished off with some journalling and foam letters.

Whoa, the picture is just so cute and emotional! The note "The car may have changed and the little boy grown up but some things never change! He still loves to wash the car." is just so touching. Marriane, this is a fantastic product of your artistry! I hope that car on the picture is good and all running. Cheers!
