Some of the DT will be featuring Digi stamps from Cedar Chest on there projects . A digi stamp is not required to play along with us, but if you want that's awesome. 
Cedar chest has some freebie stamps you should check out too.  If you choose to use an image from cedar chest desings, that gets you a 2nd entry for our grande prize

I chose to use the car and driver stamp 

I rotated creative scrappers sketch #232 for this layout
 and changed out the number of photos as well as gears for the circle elements. 

I cut the driver out and added an acetate windshield to the digi stamp from Cedar Chest. Then used foam dots to pop the car off the gears background.  For the background I used clockworks embossing folder on silver card stock then rubbed with black chalk ink to highlight the gears.  Stuck on a whole bunch of gear stickers and used up all my stash.  Some are adhered to red metallic card stock to make them bigger and take up more visual space as well as to balance out all the blue gears.  Journeled with my label maker and clear label tape so that the background paper is still visible

This week some of the DT are also giving out Blog candy.
Mine is 6 sheets of 6x6 CTMH cornflower blue pre-printed layout gift pack
all you have to do is leave a comment
