The difference....

... a year can make!

I've just been blown away by what a difference it is to go for bike rides with Sage this year. Last year, she would complain and often cry when we'd go. This year, she loves it-- which is so awesome because I love to ride my bike!

I made this layout using the MSS product challenge for May: twine. I've struggled to get into the baker's twine thing, but I found some off white and kraft coloured twine at Papertrey Ink and love them! So I used some of the off white here on my layout, on the little Crate Paper journaling tag, over the bike.

I added a PTI fancy flourishes stamp behind the bike, along with some flowers I diecut with the PTI beautiful Blooms dies. The buttons I added are also PTI.

I also used Little Yellow Bicycle & Crate patterned paper, October Afternoon letter stickers, a Hero Arts doily stamp & white embossing powder on the stamped images.

Thanks for looking!
