Joy Ride!

My son just learned how to ride his bike. It is just something that we didn't even think of trying before now....because he has been busy with sports and his scooter. So...it was sort of an afterthought. But..at age 7...we thought we would give it a try. After all, we could easily put the training wheels right back on: "As soon as we took the training wheels off the bike,
Ben took off down the street.
Maybe we should have tried this sooner."

Definitely a memory worth scrapping!

Materials used:
American Crafts-Designer paper: Celebration:Pinata; Everyday: Howdy; Amplified: The Mashed Potato; Ribbon-AC Michael's All Occasion; Letters-Sarah Script Remarks stickers, Thickers-Rainboots black puffy stickers, Trademarks rub on transfers
Other-White cs (SU!), smoky slate cs (Gina K Designs); pearl accents (Recollections, Micheal's); sewing machine; dies-arrow (Provocraft), sun (My Favorite Things); stapler; black sharpie paint pen.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cammie, this is SO cool! What a fun layout!

My youngest, Caroline, learned to ride her bike this year, too -- it's definitely a memorable moment! :)

Wow! What a fabulous and fun page! I love how you cut the image out to give the page motion. Great job with the arrows, journeling and clouds too!

Great job, Cammie! This layout is such a wonderful memory for your son to enjoy later in life. You are so clever - making him a 'moving' joy rider just rocks! Loved your stuff in Crafts 'n Things this issue too!

I LOVE this layout- keeping it in my files - my 5 year old hardly ever rides her bike- she'll be a "late learner" for sure!

Carolyn, this is so cute! Love the images you captured! I can't recall how old Chloe was when she learned to ride but I'm guessing it was around 6 or 7 too. Glad he did so well!
