Sam's birthday is 3 days after Christmas. That is kind of a lot for a little guy. So last summer, at 5 1/2, we went and picked out a new bike for his 1/2 birthday. He is still warming up to it, but is starting to relax and enjoy the ride.
I created this layout using black, red, and blue solid cardstocks, silver mirrored cardstock, a grey patterned paper, and my Cricut. The Going Places cartridge has the bike and wheel cuts and Plantin Schoolbook is the font. I used the 1 1/4" circle punch to create the jumbo scallop around the photo on the right. The big letters "Bike Ride" are chalkboard chipboard that were pre-cut. They were in my stash waiting for the right pages.
I could have gone with Transformers patterned papers or something like that, but sometimes simplicity makes a better layout. It's all in what you make of it.
