Beep vrooom

Mmmm, I love when MME comes up with a random extra sketch to follow. Especially on a day when I was feeling the need to scrap but soooooo wasn't feeling ready to jump in and design my own page! I'm so lazy sometimes. LOL

Anyway, this sketch isn't part of their normal challenge rotation, but there is a prize that I'd love! Printed tapes/Washi/Designer Tapes - whatever you call them I have this obsession with having them and *need* more. 

I started by flipping the sketch for horizontal pics because that one in the center with the car is a huge part of the story I wanted to tell. Squirrel loved this day of vacation - the Aquarium and vintage race cars! He's still asking to go back to both and it's worse when he sees pictures of them. Then I pulled out every die cut from MME that I had that went with these pages from Good Day Sunshine and sort of dumped them on the page with the actual event tickets and sorted them until I liked how it looked. 

MME Good Day Sunshine papers
MME Good Day Sunshine chipboard and die cuts
MME Abbey Road die cuts
MME Follow Your Heart chipboard hexagon and blue twine
MME Fine and Dandy ric rac ribbon
Silhouette Studio "Traffic Callouts"
Paper Studios Button brads
Ranger Distress Ink walnut stain
Silhouette Cameo
Sewing machine, white thread
I am also entering this page into The Paper Girls Challenge Blog - Challenge 12 - use some mesh on your project. My mesh came from a bag of marbles and was just the perfect size to stretch across the page as a ribbon. I then sewed it down with the ric rac.
