Pencillines 237 & HMITM

Doubled up on this layout using sketch 237 from Pencillines and the recipe from How Much Is Too Much
The HMITM criteria was
Please create a layout that has:

-Your favorite color(s) - Blue
-2 circles for wheels - the badge and the journalling circle
-2 pictures - check
-3 or more metal embellishments - badge, paperclip, butterfly, key charm, tab, pin
-ribbon for handlebar streamers - smile ribbon
-a flag or pennant - used the smile ribbon as my flag
-something shiny for the reflectors - bling on the butterfly
-And an image of a bike somewhere on your page. - one in the photo & one on the badge

The good old bubble wrap stamped background
The papers are american crafts & scenic route
the alpha, badge and ribbon is also american crafts
the butterfly & key are from my stash
and the tab at the top is by 7 gypsies

When I was working on this layout I had the very sad news that my Granddad had passed away and I almost didnt carry on with it, but with gentle encouragement from my great aussie cyber friends on Skype I managed to complete it

Rest In Peace my Dear Sweet Granddad & give Nan a big hug from me. . .XXX
