The warm temperatures and sunshine are long gone, and that of course, has me wishing I could have the lazy days of summer back! Since that's not possible, I've been busy reminiscing through our summer photos. In doing so, I ran across these pictures of my little girl riding her bike. I instantly thought of DCWV's Hello Darlin' stack and knew they would be a perfect match - both in color and in theme!
I built my entire page around the subtle horizontal pink and white stripe paper. The text, near the top of this particular page, made for an obvious and easy page title.
I knew I'd need a pop of bright pink on the page and this pattern from the stack, did just the trick. I cut it down to 3X4" and embellished it with a foam mounted word diecut and a gold embossed stamped sentiment, both designs from Kerri Bradford.
The kelly green and gold polka dotted pattern is my favorite from the whole stack. I couldn't leave the page alone, without sneaking a bit of this pattern on there somewhere. Again, I trimmed the patterned paper piece to 3X4" and embellished it with a clip and some flair. Additional layers to the left, create some added interest and depth.
There was no way I could finish this page without using the remainder of the pink and white striped pattern, which includes a large gold foiled bicycle. Since I had already cut down that paper, however, I had to come up with an interesting way to include the piece back onto my page. I trimmed the front half of the bicycle off, and aligned the remaining piece up just below my journaling. Not only does the bicycle reinforce the theme, but it also creates movement through the page, and well, it's just so darn cute!
