Boys Weekend at Nascar Layout

Another Layout challenge, this one by Paper Secrets Sketch Challenge,

This was a fun layout to work with

And of course, it had a twist!
Use a product with numbers, aside from alpha numeric sets.

I will admit, I kinda pushed the boundaries here, so we will see if it counts, may not.
While trying to think of something with numbers, I thought of my boys weekend back in March. A boys weekend that I tagged along with. Can't send the boys to Las Vegas by themselves!
They went to Nascar racing, and I ran off to more scenic areas, such as salons.....

Here's my layout I did, I used a picture of them standing in front of the track, and then one of the first pictures taken with all the cars lined up. Using the ticket stubs and the famous Nascar logo made for a nice base.

This is probably one of the most simple layouts I have made lately, but it seems fitting for a male based layout. They don't want much  :)

On the layout sketch there was some twine wrapped around the bottom pictures. I wanted to use this element somehow in my layout.
I used a picture of the winning car  (love my Silhouette Cameo for tracing picture function!) and checked out some toys in the clearance aisle.

Perfect! If you have boys then they might have some tires laying around already to use. But at 2 bucks it was cheaper and easier than buying a set of stamps. I inked it with some black and made some race tracks along the bottom of the pair of pictures. It didn't photograph well, but it showed up nicely on the page itself.

Overall I am pretty happy with this layout, simple and all. And hubby is too, which is the most important cause it will be framed and put in his office to remember his first Nascar race.


  1. Nice masculine page and awesome take on the sketch! Great use of the tickets and the tires are a nice embellishment!
