Since my laptop is still at Future Shop waiting for me to sort out what to do about it, I've been rediscovering the older photos on Greg's computer. These are from July 2008 - look how tiny Marley and Paige are! This was the first year we started volunteering with the Tour de Delta - a weekend long road race series here in Delta. We hosted a couple of riders from Quebec, one of whom stayed after the Delta races were done. There are 3 different road race series in the Lower mainland in July and since he was racing the following weekend (in Whiterock I think) and was such a lovely house guest, we said it was okay for him to keep staying with us. The girls absolutely loved him - especially Paige! She attached herself to him like we'd never seen her do before. She was completed devastated when he left. Kept asking after him for weeks! Ah, young love! LOL!
Here are your close ups.
I am totally trying to stash bust so figured multiple photo mats and journaling tags were needed here! The bicycle paper may be a bit "themey" but this option was better than the pink Studio Calico paper I also found in my stash!
This sketch gave me tons of room to journal so I tried to tell as much of the story as I could. My pen started running out towards the end too! May be time for a new one - they were originally purchased for an Interior Design class so they're a good 5-6 years old now!
I decided to notch the end of the bike paper to add some interest. It was looking a bit boring until I did this! Oh, and isn't that little bike sticker so cute! A REALLY old Studio Calico (I think) one!
Next are a couple shots showing all the layers and how some things are popped up with foam adhesive.
Well, thanks for stopping by today. In case you're interested (and you're probably not but it's my blog so I get to say what I want - BWAHAHAHA!!) I am now down one more piece of card stock and one piece of patterned paper. :) Oh, and I used 3 pieces from my scrap drawer and 6 things from my journaling tags bin. Ah, it feels so good!! :)
Happy Monday all!
