Road trip Countdown

Wow! I can't believe I leave for convention tomorrow morning! When I registered on April 16th, it didn't seem like it would ever get here! Ok on to the project! As most of you know, I'm driving to Salt Lake with three other demos, so I thought it would be fun to create a banner for everyone to count the days until we leave. Here's the full banner, sorry for the poor pictures, for some reason my computer will not allow me to download pics, so I had to copy and paste! Uggh!
Here's a little closer look at the cute cars!  I used the Top Note die, and cut my papers from cardstock I had printed "Road Trip" on.  Then I stamped the outline and car image from a Papertrey Set, and for the life of me I can't remember the name right now!  Gheesh!  I used the Sweet Girl paper pack from Echo Park to pull my colors, and the new SU In Colors were perfect!  Coastal Cabana & Strawberry Slush, and then the bright yellow from Daffodil Delight.  I hand wrote the numbers for the countdown. They were placed on a ribbon with mini clothes pins, and I also added a scallop circle and retro flower punch I had in my stash.

Here's a close up look for the final day.  This car was paper pieced with the Sweet Girl papers, and I had to add a little bling in the way of rhinestones for headlights!  Ok, I am so sorry, but I can not get this photo to be in the correct layout.  So, better to see the final tag sideways than not at all?!!
