Craft Barn Quotes and Lyrics Challenge # 5: Art or Road

The latest Craft Barn challenge has been issued, and the Lyrics or Quote we are to use this fortnight (I really like that word) are Art or Road.

Before I begin, I want to explain that I visited everyone who posted during the previous challenge, but I CANNOT leave comments on G+ blogs that require me to join simply to leave a comment.  I also CANNOT leave comments if you are on Facebook, Pinterest, or Flickr.  I apologize, but I don't belong to any of those other social network sites.

Now let's get to this latest challenge.

I chose the word ROAD because I had several collage items that I could throw together relatively quickly.  By that, I mean I knew where to find everything I needed for the quote I was using.  Not sure about other countries, but we in the States lost an hour today, and I'm entertaining out of town guests in a few hours.  So I wanted to get this ready to go, even though I can't figure out how to add a link, since mine seems to be the first entry.

Materials used include part of a road map, a car from an ad in a 1967 National Geographic magazine I fussy cut, colored card stock,

gifted washi tape, and lined notebook paper.

Be sure to check out the latest Craft Barn Challenge.  It's never too late to join, either.

I've got mine done too but the linky tool is missing right now... have put my link in the comments box for now.. You got your entry done even quicker than I did, I think, great idea to use a map as your base. Havd a good day.

I've just been to see Helen's challenge piece, great that you both chose different 'this fortnight'!!
I really like the quote you've used, so true and I like too that you've got a plan on the map..clever touch.
Hope the daylight saving hour means that you're going to start seeing some milder weather too.

Love the grid layout on the map and I remember seeing pictures of cars like this when ours here in GB were much more compact and thinking they were so elegant.

I love maps and found the street names on your layout fascinating. Such a mix of languages. Even spotted a Welsh one - Bryn Mawr. A great layout and quote.
