My First Bike Layout

Here's a layout I did using materials that were SUPER know how I like to scrap using materials that are easy on the budget!

Let's start with the paper. All but the background sheet of paper came from a Colorbok paper pack I picked up at Target. It was 99 cents for 8 sheets of patterned, coordinating paper. The chipboard letters were covered with a glitter paper scrap I had laying around. The main background paper is from the K&Company KaZoo paper pad (which I picked up with a 40% coupon, naturally!).
The chipboard letters were plain when I bought them at Big Lots. They came in a plain box with about 30 sheets of naked chipboard in various shapes. Plus, the box also contained patterned papers and stickers to match! What a deal :)
The wire dot over the 'i' can be found at Michael's right now in their dollar aisle. There are small boxes of shaped paper clips in purple and blue for a buck. Not bad :)
Here you can see my chipboard letters. I inked the edges to make it look a little more finished. They really came out nice! This was the first time I've ever covered chipboard letters, so it was a learning experience.

The 'my' and 'bike' words were cut from the Hello Kitty font Cricut cartridge. I used the shadow feature and added the faux pink stitching with a Bic Mark-It marker.

I've been mainly posting sketch challenges lately, but this was an original design of mine. I'm really happy about how it all came together.
Thanks for looking! Happy scrapping :)
