A Ride for the CKC June Blog Hop

Hi you all and welcome to my blog, today is the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop. If you are coming from Jemma's blog then your right on track. The 3 challenges this month were:
 Challenge #1 - Tone On Tone Challenge: Use tones of the same colour on your background. Which I did you can see it here: A Natural Beauty
Challenge #2 - Sketch Challenge: Use Retro Sketch #110 as the inspiration for your project.
Challenge #3 - Line It Up: Arrange your embellishments in neat rows.
I chose #2 to for my layout: here is the inspiration:

My layout for this challenge:
I had these photos for a bit now waiting for the right time to scrap them and thought this layout fit the bill. Everything is from my current kit, I choose this background because of the cars and this layout is all about the ride.
 I used the 2 potty people from Amy Tangerine Let's Go dimensional stickers. Used an arrow CTMH trinkets wooden shapes pack and used my tiny attacher to attach it. I put the picture on a PL card  and a chipboard sticker from SS 24/7. This is usually a quick stop for coffee and our first stop heading to Tammy's. We know that the NY border isn't far from here.
 Here are 2 pictures of the Hubby checking out the information sign about the town that this stop is located at, we are now on route 88.
 When we see the Twin Bridges (this is what we have nicknamed them) we know we are about 30 mins away. This is always a happy sight to see.
 My journaling spot with an arrow clip from SU and some washi tape and another SS 24/7 die cut chipboard sticker
The title in various fonts.
When we visit it's like a circle we'll go up usually around Christmas and if we can another time in the summer. If the grand-kids have a major function like Brit's Graduation then we drive up. Usually every other year Tammy drives down to visit us, it could be in the spring or the summer. The trip for us is around 6.5 hours, but well worth the travel.
 Thanks for stopping by today and next is Margie from Scrappinmargie to see what challenge she chose. If you get lost along the way here is the list of all who are in the hop:
