NASCAR

Hello Friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend :D  I'll tell you all about mine in just a minute but first here is a layout from our trip to Universal:

My son LOVES cars so he wanted to take pics with every single car on display.  I seem to have a problem narrowing down the photos I want to scrap so I tend to use a lot on my layouts.  I've got a total of seven on this bad boy :D  I wanted to keep the colors simple since the cars are so colorful.  I found the NASCAR image online and printed it out on photo paper.  The blank and white checker pattern is part of the downloaded image.

"Friends along the way" is also a downloaded font that I printed out.  I hope you're able to read the journaling on the photo.  This nice lady was trying to take her photo and my bratty son ran up to take his pic.  Believe me, his Dad and I told him to get out of the photo but the boy would not move!  We were starting to get upset with him so she gracious invited to share the pic with her.

Okay, on to our weekend!  My DH had to go out of town on business so we all decided to tag along.  We had a great time and packed a lot of fun into a day and a half.  I was trying to get on here to do some blog reading on the drive but my mobile network was giving me a hard time.  I opened a window from my dashboard to read a blog and leave a comment but somehow I ended up on somebody else's blog.  It was some who was also leaving a comment.  Anyway, I looked around the new blog and decided to follow.  I left a comment and let them know I was a new follower but when I closed the window...........I realized I was on someone else's blog!  So if I left a message on your blog calling you Millie, I'm so sorry!  It was my laptop and mobile network fighting each other and making my life miserable, lol.  After that little mishap, I decided to leave blogger alone until I got back home.
Well, I have to run.  My house is starting to look a mess and I need to run to the store to get a few things for the week.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by over the weekend and took the time to leave me a comment! :D  I plan on catching up on my blog reading tonight. 
Have a wonderful day!!

  4. Wow, what a gorgeous layout!! And what a sweet lady to let your son share the pic!! I know what you mean about narrowing down photos...I have that problem with my layouts, too!! And I've also had the same trouble leaving comments where I swear I was on one blog and I ended up on another...fortunately for me, both were named Heather, so the comment wasn't that off :) But after I hit post, I saw the Heather I thought I was commenting on had left a comment. I thought, hum, now why would she be commenting on her own post??!! I still don't know how I ended up on the other Heather's blog :)
