Welcome to the MemoryWorks Simple Stories Destinations Blog Hop!  If you are just joining us, start at the beginning HERE.  If you get lost, the line up of blogs is at the bottom of this post.

I love this line from Simple Stories.  Even though it's theme is travel, it's masculine and versatile.  So, I took the opportunity to catch up on some of my boy pages.


(8.5x11) It's the Journey:
I thought the journey quote was perfect to reflect the way my son, Owen was about playing T-ball.  He didn't care where he ended up, just as long as he got to play :)



(2 page 8.5x11)Your Brand New Bike:
Even though there were no embellishments in the kit to really match the theme of this layout, I feel like the colors are perfect for it. And, the use of several of the patterned papers takes away the need for any more.


(2 page 8.5x11) At the Arcade:

This page is actually from a vacation, but I also thought bike was fitting for the Destinations theme. I embellished with some stamps to make the whole thing flow.

I hope you like my projects, and have a blast blog hopping! Don't forget to leave a comment, and head over to the cute blog of Sarah Crawford.
