Classic Car and Classy Lady

     Today's post is a scrapbook page I made of my first Mother-in-Law, Lorraine Harmon.  This picture is actually from before she was married when she was just dating her future husband.  In fact the car in the picture belongs to him.

     This layout actually started life as a father's day card.  I was using the classic car file from Cutting Cafe and had just finished piecing my car when I set it on top of the background paper you see.  That's when I knew it had to be a layout and I knew just the picture I had to use.  Isn't this picture great?  It's one of my favorite pictures of my mother-in-law.    I just started adding embellishments that matched the car to the layout and you can see the final result.

    Here's a close up of the car.    I simply love this classic car file there is so much you can do with it.  In fact if you would like to see it used in a variety of different and outstanding ways, pop on over to the Cutting Cafe Blog and check out all the glorious inspiration.

     Another thing I like about this layout is Lorraine's name at the bottom of the layout.  It's her actual handwriting.  How cool is that?
