Hot Wheels

Can you get any more boy inspired than a Hot Wheels challenge? Our 2nd challenge for the month of November at Child's Play Challenges has to do with a boy's favorite toy, Hot Wheels.

I knew right away what I was going to create with this challenge. My son used to go kart race when he was younger. When he first started he would just let loose and give it his all. By doing that, he would spin out a lot but it was fun to watch him. One time he got high on a corner and went off the track but he didnt give up. He kept the kart going and just drove through the grass and up onto the track again. We teased him a little because when he did that he caught a little bit of air like the Dukes of Hazzard boys.

The layout that I created was of my son's first win at go kart racing. He got to do a victory lap and got his picture taken with his trophy.

I inked my letters to match the colors of my son's go kart. His race colors were black & red until he changed go karts. His second kart was silver with red & black. I made the trophy on my cricut and used some stickles to make it shine.

Crossover Challenge

The 1st challenge for November is a joint challenge from 2 different challenge blogs.  Child's Play Challenges and Pixels and Paper Challenges have a photo and a recipe to inspire our layouts.

                                                     The recipe is:
use something that is older than a year
3 patterned papers

Here is my layout inspired by the Christmas picture and the recipe.

I used gold gelatos to paint the hearts and champagne stickles on the dog bones, paw prints and small ornaments. I have a dog in the photo and deer in the banner for an animal. The more I think about it, everything on this layout is more than 1yr. old. I have 5 patterned papers and the green border is my bling.

 Prima North Country Paper
Teresa Collins Christmas Banner
Dog themed paper
Paper Studio clear title sticker
Webster's Dazzle Gems Border
Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Faber-Castell Gold Gelatos

With this joint challenge, you can submit your layout to both challenge blogs for a chance to win a prize. I hope you can find the inspiration for this challenge.

Happy Scrappin!
