SL-500


I just had to make a layout about Arthurs pride and joy.   He has been wanting a classic "fun" car for ages now and had a couple different ones in mind.   When he saw the ad for this 1999 Mercedes SL500 and that it had low miles, hardtop included and the price was just what he wanted he jumped on it.   We had to drive to Chicago suburbs to see it, after a few phone calls and pictures were sent.
Luckily since we picked it up in July the weather has been fantastic and I think he has driving it just about every day.    I got to have my picture taken in it because my Dad wanted a picture sent to him, other than that I did get to drive it the grocery store one day.  :)
We broke down and even got vanity plates for it.    The R standing for "Our" even though it is all his, he let me share in the license plate. LOL

When I saw the sketch for week #1 at  "LET'S GET SKETCHY"  I thought it would be perfect for the picture of each of us in the car and also of the license plate.    Check out the details  HERE  for the challenge and see the design teams take on the sketch.

I'm also entering this at "PAPER ISSUES" and their Fan-atics - Round 1 challenge.  Show what you are a fan of.  Sports team, food, or a certain paper manufacturer, you name it.   Well I'm a fan of this car and how happy it makes. Arthur.   Be sure and get in on the fun at Paper Issues.  Check it all out
