Kit pages

Hi Everyone: A couple of years ago my husband and I met our oldest daughter Kasey and her boyfriend Andy in Denver,Colorado for the USA Pro Challenge. We had brunch at Tamayo's on Larimer square. From where we were sitting you could look down and see the race. I snapped this picture with my little blue camera and loved it instantly. A couple of weeks ago I found this kit at The Scrapbook Diaries (thescrapbookdiaries.com) by one of my favorite designers; Gabrielle Pollacco. I knew the colors and chipboard would work perfect for this picture. Gabrielle totally inspired this piece; but I don't believe in making exact replica's of other artist work so I used the items as I saw them. I've had these little bicycles for awhile now and I love the whimsey they give to the bottom of the page. I found this ribbon ( top left corner)called pull bow ribbon and you can make a flower in about 2 seconds. I thought this would be the perfect place to test it. It takes ink really well. The items I used are all from different companies. I sure Simon Says carries some of these products. I used: paper- prima, marion smith, bo bunny. Chipboard- blue fern studios, scrap fx. Embelishments- maya road, and Mon Ami Gabby. And for Ink/pens- Tim Holtz distress. I'm going to enter this page in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (simonsaystampblog.com/monday/challenge/) The Theme this week is " Anything Goes". Would love your opinion!!
