Challenge 171 - Build A Bike

How Much Is to Much Challenge

May is American Bike Month. Biking is good for you and the environment. Not only is it green, it gets you off the couch, into the lovely spring weather. You burn calories and save money. Many towns and cities around the country are having events to particpate in this celebration. This was the inspiration for my challenge.

Please create a layout that has- [I have listed my details next to requirements]
-Your favorite color(s) - I have two favourite colors blue's and greens so I used both, I have used papers from Little Yellow Bicycle and Websters.
-2 circles for wheels - My two circles are the outside of some MM metal frames that I have stitched down.
-2 pictures - Pictues are some portrait shots of my Nephew and Niece that were Christmas presents
-3 or more metal embellishments - 2 metal out circles and K & Co Blue picture frame
-ribbon for handlebar streamers - Metal circle frames are stitched with silk ribbon
-a flag or pennant - cut from K & Co paper, rolled at the end and secured to a toothpick
-something shiny for the reflectors - the bike also cut from K & Co paper is embossed copper foil
-And an image of a bike somewhere on your page. - check

Hope it inspires you to come on over the HMITM and join in on the fun challenges.

  1. Beautiful love the bicycle...and those clocks... Awesome Fi..hugs...xoxo

  2. Honestly nothing could inspire me to join in that challenge - no offence meant at all - it just doesn't appeal to use things for the sake of it. That said you do a wonderful job of it & nothing looks like it is superfluous - so there is clearly a talent to it! All those clocks look fabbo & don't your darlings look so cute when they were younger!?!

  3. Fabulous LO...I absolutely love all the clocks down the right side of your page, and i think your bicycle is is super cool too!

  4. Stunning layout! Love all the clocks and the bicycle look fabulous. The flag on the bike is so clever. Thanks for doing the HMITM challenge!!

  5. I will always look at this layout with a special thought of my Grandad, sounds weird, but the clocks and the bike (with its one pedal) are just too much of a coincidence. I love how this one came together and your banner is quite unique, great colours that go so well with the pics. Love it! Tx

  6. Love Fi. The little boy and girl look so cute and cool.
    Tghe layout is just stunning. You did awsomely in echoing the circles of the wheels in all those clock faces. Just so clever. Tfs!!
