Vintage Wheels - CSI #39

Sometime ago, I went to scrapbook with a girlfriend and forgot to pack my pictures.  So that entire time, I designed pages without a photo in mind.  And to be honest, some of those are my most loved LOs.

When I started this page, I really didn't have a plan. I didn't have a picture that went along with the color combination at CSI, so I just started to pull things out.  This is what transpired...

As I was pulling everything together, a vintage theme started to form.
This is what happened to me...  It was literally like a light bulb going off...
I knew that I had the perfect picture to go with the theme that had presented itself.

I thought that I could definitely use this in my ABC book of me.  As I looked through my album...
"W", for wheels, was taken,
"T", for truck, was taken,
"R", for Ratt-Rod, was taken.
"Vintage Wheels" it was.  Seriously, what other "V" can you think of?

And then, because I'm doing this to meet the challenge requirements of CSI (along with a sketch from Once Upon A Sketch), I had to find a spot for journaling.  The sketch really didn't provide a good place to add the journaling, but I had to use one element from the testimony list, so I made my own little booklet and began journaling.
I'm quite pleased with the outcome even though it took me way longer than I anticipated!
Thanks for stopping!
