Page Deux

Cranked out a second page, which was much simpler in style than my Rick Springfield page. I find stickers to be a very helpful way to quickly wrap up a page. For this page, I wanted to capture the idea of motion, as the photos of Max finally taking off on a two-wheeler were full of wonderful blur. Hence the chevron background and word stickers from Simple Stories. I have had the First Bike sticker from Sticko for what seems like forever.

What you probably should realize: this is a "first" that not all parents of children with autism get. In fact, Son #1 took until age 13 to ride a two-wheeler. So Max riding one now is a HUGE deal for us, as it is for any parent, I am sure. We bask in our amazing luck with this one, and his persistence paying off.

Happy Thanksgiving!

As a treat to myself, I am scrapbooking a little today. Here is post #1: The Rick Springfield Concert. This idea has been in my head for a while, and I was still a little fuzzy of what I wanted to do when I started it, however, I really dig how it came out. I wish I had taken that picture of Rick, but my pictures did not take: too far away, using a cell phone, spotlight was not my friend...

I mounted this on BasicGrey Periphery Pinot Noir paper, then layered some sheet music of Rick's (Jessie's Girl, I've Done Everything for You, and Human Touch) and a piece of Tim Holtz Grungeboard angel wing.

Memory preserved!
