It seems like everyone is trying to squeeze in just a little bit more summer.  I wander outside for no real reason other than to sit for a few moments and listen to the breeze go through the leaves, because this will all change too, too soon. 

Jackson and Bella ride to the very edge of the driveway to take full advantage of the slight downward slope and then they pump those little legs for all they are worth to fly back down the driveway as fast as they can possibly go. 

This page of Jackson and his mini Big Wheel came together pretty quickly.  Papers, title, stars, and banners are all from the Heidi Swapp No Limits paper pad I picked up several weeks ago.  To define the edges of the page I used plain old white craft paint along all four sides. 

Truly love the Heidi Swapp layered banner stickers, but, didn't have one in the appropriate colors for this page so I decided to cut out and stack the banner pieces from one of the papers in the pad using pop dots between the layers for dimension, and adhered a wood veneer bike along the tope edge for detail.  The words Play, Best Smile, and the Journal tab were all cut outs from the pad as well. 

I added some orange striped washi tape and then repeated the washi and several little pieces of the banners in the cluster at the top of the page.  The larger stars are both cardstock and vellum and are also from a Heidi Swapp ephemera pack.   Last was to sprinkle on some little wood veneer stars.

Now I am going to take the dogs outside again, even though they don't seem too interested....  dogs are a wonderful excuse to wander outside for no apparent reason,
