Chick Magnet

This is a LO that I've been waiting forever to do, and thanks to Tim Holtz, I finally was able to get it accomplished. Techniques used are distressing, inking, machine stitching, and paper folding. Needless to say, I love the new Sizzix/Tim Holtz Die Cut "Old Jalopy"!

The photo is of my DH when he was in high school. He was the photographer on the yearbook staff and this was his 1929 Model A Ford that he drove to school every day even though the year was 1968. All the girls on the yearbook staff are in the picture, but I've heard that all the teachers wanted to get a ride in Hack's car too!

  4. This is so cool...SO glad Hack had this photo. I love the license plate strip, metal and inked flowers. It might be cool for you to make a mini album of the restoration he is doing on the car now!! Just an idea. xox
