SOU Die Cut Challenge: First Bike

I made this layout for the Stuck on You Sketches Die Cut Challenge.  Our task was to create something using a die cut that is a toy.  Our Grandson got his first bike for his birthday.  We were so tickked because he could not quite grasp the concept of having to pedal to move.  So, everone took turns pushing him.  We are to work on that issue. :)

I used the Nursery Tales  Cricut Imagine Patterns Cartridge to make the tree representing his growth and Silhouettes "Boy on Bike" die cuts.  I also used Silhouettes print and cut feature for the die cut lables with bikes that I used.  The title was cut using the Silhouette in two fonts.  The arrow was from a sticker set  had in my stash.  I also used a die cut tag to put my journaling on that is tucked in the die cut label at the top.  That way readers won't have to take the layout out to read it.  The papers I used are from American Crafts Every Day, which is an older collection I have laying around and need to use.  The cardstock is from Bazzil.
