Hot Summer

Good Friday morning to ya all, well today is Stuck on U Sketch Die Cut Challenge
Hot August Nights ( Vehicle ) I choose a 1 page layout for mine.
The picture is from Our trip to Universal Studios Florida and is a pic of Mel's Drive-in.
They have nice old classic cars parked out side of it and it is fashioned after a 50's style diner.
One of our Favorite places.....
I wanted my page to pop so I choose the blue with red...
I used Cricut cartridge: Nifty Fifties for the Sun, Drive-in sign wrote on it the place and date, Car and Guy, Coke bottle and Burger. Doodled on the car with white pen and added some black skittles to the tires...
Cricut Cartridge Don Jaun for the Title Hot Summer Cool Cars. I cut out Hot 2 times in yellow and red and cut them in half then glued them together to get the 2 tone color... I used a pop dot for the sun, coke and burger. I cut the Summer out in patterned paper . Used 3 layers of card stock for the picture matting . The background paper came from an old DCWV Kitchen stack.
I really love this Layout I think it is one of my FAVS.....
Don't forget too stop by SOUS and play along you could be one of our top 3 ...
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
