Just A Cruisin' Layout

This is a two-fer layout! Amy posted a great sketch at Birds of a Feather and The Paper Variety challenged us to create a layout or project inspired by a movie.

My kids are pretty good about traveling. Long trips are not a joy, but if I get them set up with a snack and juice they usually do really well on our frequent trips to my hometown 35-40 minutes away. They looked so cute, Peyton totally in a posing position and Maddy with her stuffed toy I couldn't resist grabbing photos (Chris was driving of course).
I added a little netting under the butterfly as well as a pin to jazz it up a bit. I've had the Making Memories frame and Jenni Bowlin butterfly for quite some time now! I hope I'm not alone in this hoarding of products I love? I have, however, gotten better at using them. That is their point after all, right?

A little bit of layering at the top and bottom helped me feel like my layout is complete. I'm totally addicted to these butterflies! I had some Ranger Pearl Medium (like Stickles but pearl). LOVE it! Want a few more colors in it! :-)

I guess I should mention the title was inspired by my sons LOVE of the movie Cars!

Now onto our weekend, I have a few pictures to share. Sunday we decided to take off for a little drive to our favorite camp spot. We hope to be able to get this said spot on Memorial Day weekend. We wanted to get the GPS coordinates for some friends that will be joining us. Both kids were excited at first. That is until we hit the gravel road. Peyton got mad that it bounced the pretzels out of his bowl and Maddy kept telling Chris to 'stop it'. haha!
Peyton was all excited to take his new little container and catch some frogs. When we didn't see any in the whole 3 minutes we were outside he was ready to go home.
So was Maddy! Actually she was mad cause we turned back from our little walk. She wanted to go further and Peyton didn't.
So we drove for a little bit finding a few back-up spots in case the one we want was taken when we got there. That's when we came across the spot above! I thought it was so pretty! We hope to get back there Memorial Day weekend and do a little hiking and exploring! Too bad their wasn't a way to camp right there at the base!

Thanks for stopping by!
