Bike Routine

Hello everyone,

I'm thoroughly enjoying my vacation at home, getting lots of crafting and film watching in! So far we've seen Wonder Woman and Spiderman Homecoming in the cinema, both of which were great, and some films at home too. During the home films, I was crafting up a storm, including the LO for this week's challenge @ (P)Inspirational Challenges. We are using this inspirational picture this fortnight:

I bet you expect a wintery layout, yes? Actually, I went a different route, here's my make:

I started with the tree paper, which is admittedly part of a Christmas paper line. However, the paper made me think of our recent biking trips in the woods near our house, so I decided to keep the red and green colour scheme but use summery pictures instead. 

From the picture, I took the colour scheme, trees, transport and the circles in the background (they reminded me a little bit of snow). What do you think, too Christmassy? I think I pulled it off!

It would be great if you could join in the fun and play along with our challenge, you have two weeks to add your project! Sponsors this week are ALL DRESSED UP and ELISABETH BELL DESIGNS, both offering digital images for the winners.
