This weekend was the first time I ever participated in an online crop. Sure, I've meant to lots of times, but I never have been able to actually do it in a timely manner. This weekend, my creative juices were flowing, and I just wished there were more hours in the day. I would have kept going if I didn't think I'd be too tired come Monday morning.
So, with all that intro, while I made 4 projects in the last day, (that's a lot for me. I'm a slow worker.) only one is photographed and ready to go. This daylight savings thing sure makes it tricky to photograph layouts in daylight.
The first challenge that I worked on was introduced by none other than Ali Edwards, and the goal was to use big type. I had this layout in the mental works for a while, and some big Thickers that I usually find too big for my taste, but here it all came together.
Now, a word about bike riding. I have layouts entitled "Deutsch Family Bike Ride" dating back to 2007, when Sam was still riding with training wheels. This year, we rode longer than we ever have before, and Max needed an adult sized bike.
And now, a look back at the years when I knew that bike ride was two words, not one:
And in case you're wondering, I have no idea why 2009 didn't make the cut.
