Want to Take a Drive?

I was so, SO excited to get to work with Echo Park's Country Drive this month at A Cherry On Top.  It had the perfect colors to match my daughter's room, so I knew I wanted to make a wall hanging. First, it was going to be a canvas or two, then that idea changed into a printer's tray. I got a tray at Hobby Lobby for cheaps and moved the handle and hardware around so the blocks would be tall instead of wide. This was  labor of love, taking me probably about 12 hours total, but I LOVE the way it turned out!

I think my favorites are the bird, the butterflies and the tags, but I really do love them all! The bird is from MME Fine & Dandy and the chipboard windows are from Maya Road. I also am pretty much in love with the Doodlebug buttons I used! Close ups of each block can be seen here.

I did a few layouts, too. This one is about the joys of country living- you gotta love having a big yard with lots and lots of room to run and play t-ball with a bike trail that runs through farm fields right down the road!

I put this one together for the little guy, too. I really love how it turned out! The orange polka dot paper is one of my faves. Those are some older Making Memories alphas, and boy do I wish I could get my hands on some more!

I hope everyone is having a great summer. It's been hot and humid here, but I've been living it up in the AC we just had installed over the winter! :)  Best home improvement investment EVER. Have a great rest of the week, everyone!

Love the printer tray! Especially the block with the windows! The country living layout is great, I love the paint splatter and what you did with the twine! And how cute is the little guy layout!
