This layout is about Hope's first bike ride, which of course ended in tears because she went over a small bank and ran into a fence. Luckily, I was able to make it all better after a few tears. It scared her more than anything, and luckily she wasn't hurt. It was almost a year before she got back on that bike again. Next step will be without the training wheels.
Here is a close up of the journaling and the wire bike. I think it turned out pretty good. I hope this inspires you to make your own wire bicycle or maybe something else.
Hope and I went to the Iowa State Fair with my sister Dawn, the twins and our mom. We had all kinds of fun (& blew through a LOT of money). It is always fun to go, but it can be really expensive to all the things we like to do & EAT! We had our usually cuisine: corndog, mini donuts, cotton candy (for Hope), strawberry smoothie, fresh lemonade and a pork chop on a stick. YUM! I wish I could say I started my diet, but we celebrated birthdays at work today with some yummy ice cream cupcakes from Maggie Moos. They were awesome!
Well, I got a new magazine today in the mail, so I am off to relax a bit and get some inspiration.
