Wanna Ride?

Good Morning! I'm sitting here drinking my coffee that I made with a piece of paper towel as a filter because I forgot to buy filters I can tell you that it makes some pretty strong java!! 

In case any of you were wondering how the "Tour de Cariboo" went, I made it 65km!!! I was pretty proud of myself because I'd only ever rode 36kms before and that was no hills...the route for the Tour has a loooot of hills and I rode up every single one of them until I couldn't go any longer! Next year I'm doing the whole thing. I figure if I can do 65 with hardly any training, then 75 with a year of riding under my belt will be totally doable! Not to mention that I really hope to be a lot lighter next year too!

Anyway, I wanted to show you a super quick layout I did the other night using one of the August sketches from Boys Rule.

I know this sketch only has 2 pictures, but I really wanted to add that adorable picture of Ethan up close in the wagon, so I added it with my title.

There's a lot of fabulous space for journaling in this sketch, but the patterned paper made it difficult for journaling to be very legible, so I thought I would do my journaling with teeny alpha stickers and it showed up really well!

I'm still working at using up my August Counterfeit kit, and this polka dot paper was my last full 12x12 now I think I'm going to work on making Septembers :)

Well I'm off to clean my house!! I swear it never ends does it?! 

Have a great day!
