Ride Layout

To enter my "Blogaversary Giveaway," please click here.

For this layout, I decided to pull out a couple of cartridges that I have had since last year.  I have never used Groovy Times before and frankly don't even know why I bought it since it took me a year to break it out of the blister pack.  The title and the motorcycle on the left page were both cut from Groovy Times.  The motorcycle on the right was cut from the Father's Day Seasonal cartridge.
All of the flags for the layout including the banner were cut by hand and embellished with a white gel pen. The entire layout has quite a bit of faux stitching with my white gel pen.
The photo mats were cut oversized in order to add some coordinating ribbon to the ends of the photo mats.
I added a couple of brads to the tires of one of the motorcycles to give the appearance of hardware.
I stamped the "Wild Thing" sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Crazy for You stamp set to one of the hand cut flags.  The flag was then added to the title of the layout as an accent.
Some metal embellishments with sentiments were also added to the other flag banners on the layout.
The tag was cut by hand and punched with the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch.  The journaling stamp for the tag is a Making Memories stamp.  The tag was finished off with some coordinating ribbon and a bow tied with some jute.
