When I saw this photo of my granddaughter riding her bike, even though it's not a good photo, I had to scrap it. I wanted to try my hand at layering as it's not a technique I'm very successful with. I'm not sure I've cracked it yet either lol, but I'm getting there. Papers are K & Co's Brenda Walton 'Mira'. I cut the title on my Craft Robo. I cut 3 in card and layered them up to be a bit thicker and then covered them with one cut in paper. The embellishments are all cut from sheets of paper within the pack. Some lace and a couple of buttons finished it off.

Journalling reads:
This isn't the best photo in the world, but when I saw it, it captured something in me. As I looked at you riding into the sunset, I wondered where life's journey would take you. Where will you go to? What will you see? What will you be? A doctor? A lawyer? Maybe an artist? Or, maybe you'll be content to just be a wife and mother. Who knows?

Wherever you go and whatever you do Mia, I hope and wish for you that your journey through life has so many more ups than downs and that you will find happiness and fulfilment in everything, big or small. Learn to trust and never be afraid of asking for help if you need it. Stay strong through all the downs and you will come out the other side. Be yourself Mia, because you are beautiful.
