Jack rode a bike

So we tried to teach Jack how to ride a bike last year.
We bought him one....without training wheels.....and he wasn't very happy about it.
But you can't blame us....the ones with training wheels were fugly and we knew he'd outgrow that little thing way too fast!
But we convinced him he could do it....he was a big boy!

We took him to the park, got him going, he did great!!!
And he's never ridden since.
Well, unless you count the time I forced him out on the street to practice and he immediately got freaked out and quit.
Said he was too little and would do it when he was in first grade.
Well, now he is in first grade, and we aren't quite there yet!!!

But I did get these super cute pics of him that very first time and I scrapped em ;)
I liked the design of the page so much that I basically repeated it and sorta kinda made a double layout if you will ;)

All of our kids have been late bike riders.......and trust me when I say, he aint the latest in the bunch ;)
Here's to hoping he gives it another go!

Some Crate Projects

I love participating in the challenges over at Crate Paper, they are one of my favorite companies and am always so inspired by the challenges......would be nice to win one of these days, but alas....winning is not something I seem to be very good at ;)

This one here is from the September color challenge.  I love how it turned out, makes me happy.  I wanted to get down on paper how Samantha seems to have an old soul.  She has always seemed older and wiser than her years.  She feels a lot and thinks a lot about stuff.  I love to watch the little wheels turn in her brain some days.....than she'll just start laughing.  Get into a fit of giggles over herself.  She amazes me always ;)

This next one was for an all natural challenge.   To use lots of browns and natural tones.  I had these Crate frames I didn't really know what to do with.....then this little idea popped into my head.  I love the quote and the movie it came from, The Help.  Had fun using my archaic Slice machine, it's better than nothing, right ;)  I really like how this turned out too. 

My flower is so pretty in real life!!!  I just might make more!  

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
