Grants, NM


These pictures are from the road trip my brother and I took on Route 66 in April.   This was our 3rd attempt on this trip, we were originally going in 2020 but Covid hit so no traveling.   Then we took off in May last year and at the end of day 2 we started having major car problems and ended up getting towed home.   This year we took off in April and traveled 5 full days before we started with car problems again and decided to turn around then and head back to Missouri.   We still had a great trip and saw a lot but didn't finish the whole route or the other places we planned on visiting on our route home.    This will probably be our last long grip in a 99 Mustang.   We will save it for our day trips.  :)

I made this layout for  "SCRAP YOURSELF" and their May challenge to be  messy.   I used 3 different spray inks on my background.   Messy for sure.   I need to bring in a big box to spray into for now on.

The theme for this month's challenge is "Get Messy!  We are suggesting you used inks on your layout, but you can interpret the theme any way you like!  Just remember to include a photo with YOU on your layout.

Memories from the Past

 My brother and I did a two day trip to see part of the Route 66 sights in Illinois this week.   We found out it's going to take more time to see it all, so another two day trip will happen in a few weeks to finish the Illinois portion of Route 66.

But this is the sight I saw as we were driving home in Missouri last night. Growing up in the 50's, 60's and even 70's in Missouri this was a common sight in Missouri to see old barn roofs painted with advertising and in Missouri we saw lots of Mermec Caverns, so it was fun to see a restored roof painting again.  So glad I was able to get a few good pictures as we drove by in the car, and then extra special as there was the beginning of a pretty sunset in the background.

I am entering this in two challenge, first the sketch I used at  "SKETCH N SCRAP".

Then I am also entering this week's Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at "LASTING MEMORIES",  I did a diagonal BIRD, TREE, FLOWER.
