Crash Bang Whallop!!

I've been looking at some photos of our old Escort that was wrote off last year by some idiot who decided to drive with his head stuck up his arse and as a result drove straight into the back of us and caused £1,200 damage and we are still trying to win the case even with two witnesses...its been a serious battle of wills between them, me and the Solicitors!!


I was absolutely gutted the Insurance Company decided to write it off, it wasn't young, had rust spots over the wheel arches but it was a limited edition and never let us down, no matter how cold it got it used to purr every time the ignition was turned, so it was a sad day when it was towed away but not before I had removed the 'Escort 16' off the back while my husband just looked on and rolled his eyes lol. So to mark this day I did a layout for the weekly challenge over on UKS.




The challenge was to use the sketch provided which was easy as I love following a sketch, use black & white, 9 embellishments and some sort of stamping. I decided to stamp the white Prima flowers as they looked a little dull and turned out really well, my 9 embellishments came in the form of the letters which look OK now they've had a wash and really make the layout have a personal feel, my patterned paper is actually scanned pages from the Haynes manual for the car just inked and punched, I really like the finished page and yes we do have another Escort :)




Until next time xxx
