Mecum Car Auction Comes to Indy.......

A couple of weeks ago the Mecum Car Auction was in Indianapolis.  This was a much anticipated event for my guys who were planning a week of ogling cars from all over the US.  I knew my husband was looking for a new toy, but I was a little surprised when my son came home and told me they needed to go back the next day because he had something to "pick up."

Ah, and there it was, a 1992 Corvette.  That was a great year for cars and kids; my son and the car are the same model year! hahaha

When I saw the challenges over at 1 2 3 Get Scrappy and Bitten by the Bug 2 I knew it was time to scrap the pictures from the big day.  1 2 3 Get Scrappy is like Tic, Tac, Toe; the requirements are in a 9-square grid and you have to complete three in a row.  I chose rectangle shapes, blue background, and gears & cogs.  Bitten by the Bug 2 is challenging us to use a car die-cut.

Material list:

CTMH Cardstocks:  White Daisy, Cranberry, Honey, and Black
Misc Cardstock: silver
CTMH Inks:  Outdoor Denim, Slate, and Black
Cartridges:  CTMH Artiste, CTMH Artbooking, CTMH Art Philosophy, and Paper Dolls for Everyday
CTMH Stamp Sets:  Cricut Artiste Kudos and Take Note
CTMH Embellishments:  Marquee Enamel Shapes and Epoxy Bubbles Black/Gray
Cereal box cardboard to back the gears and lettering
