Friends with Flair is in the air!

 
Hooray for Friends with Flair Friday!  Today I have a scrapbook page for you.  I used last Friday's sketch challenge on SCS for this one.  The photo's above are of my oldest son when he was six, riding his bike with no training wheels for the first time.  He was so darn proud, and that summer he had lost four teeth so his smile is just priceless!  We were at my parent's cottage in Michigan, and my Dad attached a broom stick to the back so that we could run along side of him, and hold on until he felt secure.  You can see my hubby running along side in the first picture after he had let go for the first time.  Such fun memories.  
I had to use that awesome retro looking bike from August KOTM for this page.  The paper is from K&Co's Daydream collection.  I just love the paper in this collection.  Fun and funky, and a lot of themes that work for both  boys and girls. The chipboard Happy is from Anna Griffin's Darcey collection, and the journal box is from MM.
Have fun, and can't wait to see what everyone does today.  I probably won't comment until later, cause I have to sleep after working all night!  As soon as I get my bum out of bed I will be cruising blogs!

So cute. Reminds me of the time my daughter learned to ride...she was much older than your son (we lived on a busy street until she was over 8)....don't they shine when they learn to do something that they are proud of?
