All Racing Blog Hop

Pin It
Welcome to the All Racing Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating the start of the 2013 Nascar Season and the Daytona 500. We have all created a project having something to do with any form of racing.
If you have raced over from Lee's blog you are on the right path.
If you just happened upon this post, race over to Carla's Blog to start from the beginning.
 Our wonderful sponsor for this hop is, Nikki over at Paper Piecings by Nikki
She has graciously offered a $25.00 gift certificate to her store. To be eligible to win this you must leave a comment on all the blog posts.
Now let's see what I have created for this great hop...
 My oldest used to be a Boy Scout. One of the trips they took was to go race professional go carts at K1 Speedway here in Southern California. I'm really behind in my scrapping so this layout was the perfect excuse to join this Blog Hop. So glad I did!!
 I'm going to be honest with you...I could have cut out the title, flag and race car with my Cricut or my eCraft but many years ago (before I owned these machines) I purchased these die cuts from an Expo. I have been hoarding them and finally pulled them out and put them to use. The company that created them was called Scrap It, Keep It, Remember It.
Now on the second page I finally busted out my "New" Creative Memories Border System with the Banner Border Punch. I love this punch system! You have gotta check it out!
This design was inspired by a Scrapbooking kit I found on the Internet, but I am not sure which company. When I figure that out I will be sure to give them the credit.
Here's our list of racers in case you get lost.
I am the last stop in the race to the end! Thanks for racing by!!
