Enjoy the Ride

Friday, June 7, 2013

This is my first layout as an Inspired Blueprints design team member! You can check out the sketch and other DT members' layouts (along with mine!) HERE.

**patterned papers from October Afternoon Campfire collection**

This is sketch #97.  I rotated the sketch to accommodate the horizontal orientation of my larger photo.  I eliminated the large bow giving this layout a more masculine feel.  The red hearts help bring out the red my my son's shirt but started out as just being the dot over the letter "i".  And I love the little wood veneer bicycles---this is the first time I have used these but they have been in my stash for a long time!! 

I also created this layout for About a Boy.  The challenge this time is to scrap about your boy's favorite summer activity.  Well, getting out on his bike was definitely up there among the favorites for quite a few summers! 

You can play along with both the sketch and the challenge for the rest of the month and have a chance to win prizes!  Just click on the links above.  Hope to see you there!
