Sketch This #60

I have always wanted a Jeep Wrangler. Ever since high school it was the car I coveted. LOL! One day on Willow Traders there was a thread asking what car you would have if money or practicality weren't an issue . . . a ton of us were saying that we would love a Jeep Wrangler. It made me giggle that so many of us thought these cars would be fun.

At the time, Kevin was trying to decide which car he should get next. If you know my husband's work schedule, you know that he drives back-and-forth to work twice and sometimes three times a day; therefore, we put miles on cars fairly quickly. We are constantly rotating them out, so that they hold their value and we can keep them under warranty in case of any issues, and so that the new buyer will feel comfortable in buying the car. ANYWAY, he was in the middle of trying to decide which car to get next. I was casually telling him about the thread on Willow Traders, and we laughed about it becuase he said that he had always wanted a Jeep, too!

Then the light bulb clicked . . . he said "Why not?! Let's get one for the summer!" LOL! We get teased by our friends that we think we are in high school again, and that we are going through a mid-life crisis. But we don't care! :D We are having a blast in it! We go out in the driveway at night and listen to music and look up at the stars. I LOVE IT! I hope we keep it longer! It makes me feel like we're driving a giant four-wheeler around town! :D

So that's what this layout for Sketch This #60 is about . . . the purchase of a Jeep . . . all because of Willow Traders! I'll have to say that it is the biggest "enabling" yet! Thanks, Willow Girls! ;)

P.S. I should also tell you that this is a Sneak Peek at my work with the August Work In Progress kit. (I LOVED this kit!) I'll be back with more in a few days when the gallery is revealed! ;)

See you then!
