When I first saw the Hero Arts (HA) 2011 Clear Set CL478 Going I was immediately drawn to the Volkswagen Beetle image. Some of my fondest memories from high school revolve around escapades with my best friend Sarah and the reddish orange Beetle she drove :) Her beloved Bug had seen better days and it makes me giggle when I think about how I would have to prop my feet up as part of the passenger side floor was missing or how the doors - without warning - would fly open as we whirled around a traffic circle! One night we even managed to squish 8 girls in its cramped quarters to avoid paying for more than one carload at the drive-in movie theater!
Keeping those happy memories in mind I did a little paperpiecing and created this simple, lighthearted birthday scene:
The sun is from HA CL439 Kiss From the Sun and the sentiment from HA CG275 Birthday. The party hat is from MSE M103 Birthday.
Other Materials Used: Stampin' Up cs and pp, Bo Bunny pp, Cuttlebug border embossing folder, Martha Stewart twine, Cricut George and Basic Shapes cart (balloon die cuts), Papertrey Ink Cloud die cuts were a gift from Anita :)
I hope everyone is having a Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by and for all your comments!
