Moxie Fab Bicycle Challenge

Over on the Moxie Fab World blog Cath has challenged her readers to create projects with a bicycle theme, specifically the "I Want To Ride My Bicycle Challenge." This is inspired by the many items in the craft world that are starting to take note of the whimsy in bicycles. As I was printing some photos for some other layouts my eye came upon a photo my husband had taken using his iPhone in April. It is a shot of me riding through the sea of yellow flowers along the path that runs along the trails in the South Bay by the Google campus here in Mountain View. I remember being in that field of yellow was quite impressive and I think this photo captures the experience well.



To try and translate that on a scrapbook layout meant that I went outside my usual scrapbooking style, but I wanted that photo to definitely be the focus. I found a stamp that I felt went along well and a perfect vellum sticker from amongst my stash. As I'm getting some enjoyment out of my new scoring board, I figured it would be the best compliment for the rest of the page. I have to admit that it was kinda fun to make this page. And thank you, Cath, for this challenge so that I got to use this little photo! :)

DETAILS:
Paper - Solid (Martha Stewart)
Stamp - Silhouette Spray (Hero Arts), Ink (Color Box - Cocoa)
Embellishments - Phrase Sticker (American Traditional Vellum Sticker), Scoring (Martha Stewart Scoring Board), Corner Punch (EK Success)
