I am speechless.

I log into my email this morning and there's a flood of "congratulations" messages. What the heck?

Unbelievably, I won a bicycle - a replica of the Little Yellow Bicycle logo. I entered the contest over at Two Peas because I really wanted to win one of the smaller prizes. I would've been happy with any of the new LYB collections. I love them all! Who would'a thunk it...I won the Grand Prize.

And yes, my much too old, overweight self will be riding that bright yellow bicycle all around the cul-de-sac. I might even add a basket to it. My neighbors are in for a treat. Ha!

This is the winning page. It's a round up of Nico's favorite things from this summer. I chose one picture for each of the things that he told me and then added as much of the LYB Boardwalk line as I could.

I love this big sun die cut paper and I was determined to use it. I tucked it in and embellished it a bit so it didn't get lost on my page. It took a while to get this 2-pager to come together. There were so many pictures and elements I wanted to include. It almost like putting together a big giant puzzle. The Boardwalk line is my favorite of all of the summer releases, so that made it easier.

A great big THANK YOU to Two Peas in a Bucket and Little Yellow Bicycle. I will ride my Greenline Yellow Daisy bike with pride!
