2009: Pigeon Forge Go-Karting
While we were in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area we decided that we would have a little fun go karting. We had also recently been enjoying the movie “Cars” and so I decided to use Cars stickers to the theme of this page.
I could not find exactly the background paper that I wanted, and since I had just hand painted the background for the Hillbilly Golf page – I decided that I would do the same for this page. I started out by drawing the track on the page in permanent marker, and then I used green paint and a sponge brush to fill in the rest of the background.
I purchased the Pigeon Forge lazer cut in the top left hand corner in a local craft store while we were there and then spent quite a bit of time putting it together, but it is one of my favorite ones.
Since my parents were with us on the trip my mother was able to take pictures of us while we were gokarting. I have very few pictures of my son and I together as I am usually the one that needs to take them, and I am not the kind of person who stops strangers to ask them to take pictures of us – maybe I should get better at that!
