"We should do this every week!" my husband proclaims at least 3 times as we are riding along the greenway in a nearby town. It was a wonderful outing. We've biked there before but for various reasons - mostly procrastination and then various aches and pains - hadn't been back in two or three years.
I hope it won't be two or three more years before we load up the bikes and take them for a ride through several miles of flat trail. A flat, traffic free area of biking is almost unheard of in our part of the state. We didn't make it back last week and aren't going to get there this week but I do want us to get out and do more things together. We did a window treatment installation on Monday that took several hours. Does that count as an outing? It was gratifying but somewhat less relaxing than peddling along on a perfect sunny, not too hot, day.
For the layout, I was inspired by this one from Scarlettbirddesigns. She used the negative space behind her cutout title to place designer paper. I did multiple lines for my title and different papers for most of the lines. This was surprisingly easy. I used my SCAL software and the Cricut but you could use a Silhouette. I typed each word as a separate entry and then just arranged them in a block. After cutting, I only had to piece in the center of the 'o' 'e' and 'd' letters to finish off the title. It is a cheap way to do a long title.
The bicycle paper is from who else? Little Yellow Bicycle. Most of the rest of the paper is Jillibean Soup Macho Nacho. These colors are fantastic and so useful for our pages. If I could send one wish to the paper crafting community it would be MORE BLUE! More true blue!
Do you and your honey have outings or 'date days' as we often call them? What do you do? I'm always looking for new ideas.
