Fun Layout!

I always have fun with the challenges at Scrap Your Crap and this was no exception. This week's challenge was to use 5 or more pictures on your layout.

I had to drive my brother's Jeep back to his home after it was repaired in Memphis. I was afraid to drive it on the Interstate because when big trucks would pass me it felt like I was going to be blown off the road. So I took the back roads and turned a 2 hour trip into a 3 1/2 hour trip, but there was no traffic and some really funny sites!

This is how I made the road on my layout. I ran the toy truck tires over my ink pad and then on the paper. It would have been better to have a truck with bigger tires and more tread, but this was all I had. I think I'll look for a new toy truck on my next trip to the dollar store.

I love the truck tire road! And that sounds like something I would totally do...look all around at everything and make the trip longer...but you have fun doing it! And that's the most important thing!
