To Infinity and Beyond!

You never forget your first love.

This was my fourth birthday. I loved that bike. I even remember the day I rode it without training wheels. My dad was running down the street holding the back of my bike and suddenly I was riding it all by myself! My dad re-gifted this bike to me on my 8th birthday. He refurbished it adding a sparkly banana seat, an orange flag on the back, reflectors that made a popping noise when I rode and a water bottle holder! Flash forward 40 years and I still like my bicycle gadgets. I have flashing lights for riding at night, a rear view mirror, a pouch for my repair kit and Iphone, AND a water bottle holder! Wendy's Bike 2017

Today’s post is part of the Club Scrap Pattern Play blog hop. I love the designs in this kit! I rarely make things for myself and it has been a loooooong time since I have made a scrapbook page with paper instead of digital. I don’t remember taking this photo, but I sure do remember my first love and it deserves it’s own page!


I colored the wooden word art navy blue to match my dress and tied it together with the little blue buttons that came with this month’s Club Scrap Deluxe Pattern Play kit.


I pulled out my trusty Club Scrap® Idea Deck for the sketch. These things are awesome…the cutting instructions are on the back so you don’t waste a scrap of paper!


I had plenty of paper left, so I decided to make something else. Club Scrap® has so many fabulous projects, I just had to peruse my collection of Scrap Raps and found this tutorial!

I used the cutaparts and stamp images from the kit and that AWESOME black print card stock! 031E029E028E027E

  1. So great you go through those old Scrap Raps, there ARE tons of fun projects in those! What a great stamp “To Infinity And Beyond” that you’ve cleverly used on this paper engineered book that keeps going! So clever.

    Great then and now bike pics, so cool you have that old pic to create this great layout. Thanks so much for sharing, what fun!
