Finally...A Post

With a hectic back-to-school schedule, helping with homework and studying, as well as putting "Mom's Taxi" back on the road, I haven't had much time for scrapping or blogging. Finally I have a layout to share. Mind you, I completed most of this layout at the CKC Crop back in July. All I had to do was the journalling when I got home. Bestselling novels have probably been written in the time it took me to journal. So, here it is. Hope you enjoy the layout and the journalling!

Journalling reads: How could we go wrong when we accepted the rental car agent's offer to give us an upgrade? But parked next to the sporty convertibles and the cool SUVs was this burgandy albatross. Melissa burst into tears and, despite 95 degree temperatures, Mark pulled the hood of his sweatshirt over his head to make sure that his friends -- who were 1,000 miles away -- wouldn't see him getting into this car. As for Sal and I, we suddenly felt the urge to look for an early-bird special! After the disappointment passed, we laughed about the car we now call the Grandma (r Quis)!

I used a lot of materials on this one page -- some planned and some unplanned. The half circle from Making Memories' Noteworthy Collection and the Technique Tuesday stamp (seen in green and black) were items I acquired at CKC. I love how these extra elements added personality to the layout. Oh how my CKC trip has paid off. LOL!

Speaking of CKC, I'm headed to Hartford for the day in early October. This time around, I've signed up for more classes which will save me a lot of money at the Vendor Fair.
