The world of Cars, trophy, traffic cone, Guido and the road are all cuts from the Cars cart.
Man oh man, these cars are so hard to cut that I am afraid to even try a more difficult car. I ended up cutting this in white. Only the tires and top blue layers were cut with the cricut. All the other 'pieces' were colored with pen or colored pencil, then inked.
All the paper is from DCWV's Retro Stack. I would say this is my all time favorite! I just LOVE it! This photo also shows the paper border punches I used, a ticket and binder paper punch. Also the 'wheels' are a Martha punch. 'Boys will be boys' and 'Limitless' were cut from the paper stack.

Oh no, I almost forgot to share the exciting news for SOUS this week..we have our very first Guest Designer...Magical Wanda! Please check out her blog if you have not, she is amazing!
This is a special LO to me because it is my first one with just my niece Maddie. I was there for her birth and have taken care of her since she was a toddler. She is more a sister to my kids then a cousin. What cracks me up is how similar some of her sassy faces are to my daughter Jordyn. Family ties! LOL! And she will soon be performing in her first play! I am so proud of her! 9 years old is looking pretty big to me!
onto the LO....printed paper is K&Co. Solid cardstock and glitter cardstock is DCWV.
Butterfly and So Fabulous are cuts from Graphically Speaking. Everything else is a mish mash of my supplies. There were some subtle details here that I had fun adding. Little dots of silver metallic pen. A rubber stamp with a distressed splatter look (you can see that better on the solid pieces of paper in the next 2 photos). Rhinestones on brads. And my funky black fiber.
I added the next few photos because well...we know how much we love to see more photos! LOL! Its great to see the whole LO but we'd miss the details if it were not for these extra's...
I could not believe how gorgeous the title came out! I (again) used my grungepaper and then layered the DCWV glitter cardstock on top of it. It all cut perfectly and added a ton to the page!
And well...we'll call it a day! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and please check out what my friends did at SOUS with this very same sketch!

This shows how the entire section folds up to reveal a place for lots of journaling, a little hand made embellishment and an extra photo of my newborn Scotti.
Baby Love was cut from All Mixed Up. I really like that cart because it offers 3 layers to the lettering!
I had a few different techniques for the squares. Some were sanded, distressed with an edge distresser, embossed and inked. Some also had faux stitching.
Ok last shot! Showing what I did with the cuts from New Arrival. I think the animals on that cart are totally freaky but I do like what else it has to offer!
guess I will mention now that we have CANDY over at SOUS, so please if you want some goodies...go leave a comment for a chance to win and if you post a project..you get in there twice! how nice!
