Get it Scrapped - scooter ride

Hi everyone!
A new layout of mine was published today at alongside other layouts about bike rides.
Since my daughters don't ride bikes yet (Arielle is learning to ride without training wheels but I don't go on field trips with her on her bike) when we go for a ride I'm walking and they ride their scooters. Even Maya is very good at it!
I like the page I created. It's very soft and girly. And oh how I love to use polaroid photo frames!!!!

I did my title with some older Thickers and the new letters from Dear Lizzy that I so totally love!! I went with 2 very different colors, fonts, styles. And I stitched the 2 words to unite them.

 I used some polaroid frames that I found online for free and that I printed on white card stock. I cut out the inside with an x-acto knife.

This little man on a scooter is a small card I have had forever and I thought I'd never use.... you see, we never what we'll need. I keep EVERYTHING!! :) I stitched it to add some cool texture inside the frame and I added the date on the frame with my smash date stamp. I added a simple Dear Lizzy chipboard arrow to direct the eye to the next picture.

Here's a detail shot of my focal point picture that I have set right under my title and that I didn't frame but printed in a bigger size. I stitched some Dear Lizzy chipboard accents in the white space of the photo. I kind of like it .... a lot! :)

Here I played with chevrons to direct the eye. And I added some texture and fun to my layout with some rub-ons from Heidi Swapp! I never have enough of those!!!!!! (And I secretly wish that Heidi will soon have a new something to replace/accompany these!!)

Here's a look at my journaling that I framed. And I added another rub-on at the bottom.

On the side I used 2 triangles to act like arrows to direct the eye.

Voilà. :)
oh, and can you see that there are some glitter in the background paper? And did you see all the stitching?? ;)

Ok, we're off to Disney!!
Have a nice week, guys! :)

Talk to you soon!

Trop belle ta page ! J'aime beaucoup l'idée de transformer tes photos en pola et de faire de même avec les journaling !
J'ai hâte de voir un peu + de ton PL ! Bisous...

Merci Marie pour ton petit mot! La vie roule a une vitesse folle ici depuis 2 mois et je suis officiellement en retard de 6 SEMAINES dans mon album Project Life!!!! Haaa!! En plus je pars pour une semaine à Disney samedi alors ce sera 7 semaines de retard assurée + toutes les semaines que je prendrai pour me remettre à jour. Je n'ose même pas y penser. Je serai peut-etre la preuve vivante que rattraper Project Life, ca peut se faire aussi rapidement que Becky Higgins le dit. À suivre... ;) Merci d'être toujours au rendez-vous. :)
