Mom-Mobile

Boy, I never thought I'd see the day that I was excited to trade in my vroom vroom car for a minivan, but after baby #3 (yeah she's 2 now...I should probably stop calling her 'the baby' huh?) it was undeniable that my sedan wasn't gonna cut it!  Sure there were technically enough seatbelts for all 5 of us, but that didn't mean we were almost fitting.  And frankly, if I had to listen to one more brawl break out over someone 'looking at' someone too long, I was going to lose it.  Finally after a few months of shopping we found the minivan that would work perfect for us, with all the right bells and whistles.  The kids call it my 'mom-mobile'.



The layout follows sketch #13 posted over at My Scrap & More .  I really love the big circle element!! I rotated the sketch a tiny bit to an angle though!  I'm kinda thinking about switching the teal letters to white.  I didn't want them to stand out more than the black ones so I thought that would work, but the more I look at them, the more they blend too much. The other challenge that inspired this layout was Lasting Memories #124 - Borderline.  The paper set I used came with a sheet of die cut borders that I layered a few just below my photo.

Thanks for visiting!

  5. I totally get where you're coming from. As the mother of four even a minivan isn't big enough to stop the she touched, pinched or looked at me battles. Good luck with the Mini and I have to agree white would be good replacement for the teal. Love the texture of the black felt letters.

  10. Cute page. Like your maps at the sides of your pictures. You will absolutely love your minivan and will wonder what you ever did without it. I got my first van, a VW bus in the late 70s, then a VW vanagon and am still driving one. OOps, I'm in a Honda minivan now, someone took out my vanagon almost two years ago. Soooo Welcome to the world of the minivan.
