i hopped on this beauty today. my Specialized Dolce bike. i took this picture of my bike last summer when we were on vacation in michigan. it was our 31 mile ride day. we took a water break and i snapped this shot. i love it. i love to ride. i only rode 5 miles this evening, but it was great. one of my favorite things to do as a little girl was to hop on my little red and white sting ray bike and ride like the wind. that’s what i felt like today. i felt like that little 8 year old, shag haircut little girl riding as fast her legs could carry her. and it felt great. i would say this is one of the best parts of spring for me. being able to ride my bike.
i’ve been busy scrapping. i’m working on my client’s australia / new zealand vacation album. i’m thankful for my client. not only do i enjoy the work she gives me to do, but she and i have become friends as well. she has a beautiful positive spirit and she is an enormous inspiration to me. she has a beautiful listening ear. i know God brought she and i together – and how utterly awesome for me to have the opportunity to scrap as a part time job! thankful indeed!
here are a few of my own layouts i’ve done recently. they are all for challenges over at 52 weeks x 52 layouts blog. i love designing for the challenge blog. i love having a weekly challenge.
i don’t normally publicly tell when i try out for a design team, but what’s the harm right? soooo ….. i publicly “put it out there” that i sent in my entry for the Jillibean Soup design team call. i would be over the top crazy excited to be added to their team. i love their product. i had a blast making the pages for my entry. i’ll know by this weekend if i am chosen or not.
the weather is suppose to be nice again tomorrow, so i’ll be riding my bike again. and i’ll be scrapping again. and it’s my favorite tv night. and i can’t lie, i’m desperately hoping to get a good scrappy call or email. 🙂 here’s to tomorrow!
until next time ….. xoxoxo Carrie
