Mel's Diner! Universal Studios Florida

Travel back to a more simple time when rock and roll was born and Doo-Wop was the rage. Mel's Drive-in is a scene right out of American Graffiti complete with a few vintage cars parked out front. No trip to Orlando  Florida would be complete without a vist to Universal Studios.
I love the challenges at Lets Get Sketchy and this weeks sketch was no different! As soon as I saw it I just new I wanted to play along! 
This is my take of the sketch.


When going through a bunch of my old papers, I came across this sheet of Coca Cola paper which was very busy on its own, but I new I could work it into the sketch without it taking over the whole page. The rest of the paper is just from KC and company paper packs.
  
 I used My Cricut Cartridge Nifty Fiftys for all the cuts on the layout.
 The girl and drive in sign were cut at 4 inches and the car was cut at 2.5 inches.
This weeks challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is called "On the Go" make a project with a car, bike, plane, tain etc.
The picture was taken in front of Mels Diner at Universal Studios 2011.
As always thanks for stopping bye.
