A Project for Joe

After I made the garland of dresses for Kaity and Selah's room, I got to thinking about what I could do in Joe's room. I knew it would probably feature cars and/or trucks in some way ... and then it hit me! I'd use Jeff's hobby as an inspiration for Joe's banner. Here's the end result ...
And a few close-ups for your viewing pleasure ...
In case you can't tell, these are Volkswagen Beetles and Volkswagen buses (Transporters). Jeff is a major VW enthusiast: he proposed to me in his candy apple red 1966 Beetle. He now owns a 1969 Transporter.
Jeff drew the templates for the bus and the Beetle, then I traced them onto scrapbooking paper. The road behind the cars is wide satin ribbon laced with skinny yellow ribbon.
