Bike Ride? Yes Please

Now that I'm alive again, I have an October Afternoon sketch for you. Food poisoning sucks, big time. Really. I had two episodes of food poisoning in the same number of weeks. How is that even possible? I cook my own food, well, except those cupcakes I bought, but I've never been 'poisoned' by a cupcake before. Haha! I didn't believe it at first, so I ate another cupcake when I felt better after the first time. I don't think it's 'poison' literally though, they must have something in there that just doesn't agree with my tummy. 

What an interesting first paragraph. I hope you're still reading. LOL.

Here's the sketch I was talking about :)

OA Sketch July 9th

Here's my take on the sketch using two photos from our first ever long bike ride. Long is subjective here of course. We only did 27km/16.7miles - but at that time, it was such an achievement especially for Nidhi! :)

Loving the huge triangle, I have mine almost exactly where it is on the sketch but flipped it upside down. I felt like this little change suits my layout better. I added two squares of paper that I cut from Summertime Blue Skies PP making it look like I have four photos instead of two.

I also 'quilted' on Summertime Heatwave PP because to be frank, I've wanted to do that from the first time I laid my eyes on that paper. I just love it so much.

I stamped part of my title on one of the label from Summertime Double Take stickers. 'Good Times' and 'June' tab came from the same pack. And finally, a tin pin! I mean, how adorable is that bike? Ours didn't have a basket on it obviously but I can't resist adding that little tin pin to my layout. 

Three bicycles on this layout, six if you count ours. Every summer has a story. Ours is all about bike rides. What's yours? 

I hope you'll have time to play with the sketch. Tag me if you do. I'm @sashafarina on Instagram. I usually post sneaks and my layouts with #octoberafternoon in the description. 

Happy scrapping!
