This one is called Moving Day

Scooter Boy

Good afternoon,
the sun is shining here today,
but Darren is packing the garden stuff away for the winter.
Can't believe we've only had about 3 BBQ's this "so called summer"
I suppose it doesn't help with it being a late Harvest this year and Darren always working late.

Anyway I have a card to share today for special friend's son.
I love the fact that LOTV have an image suitable for almost any occasion & hobby
and I thought Scooter Boy would be perfect for George,
He's always going up to school on his scooter & I love it that his mum always scoots home!!!


I have used :
 LOTV ~ Scooter Boy
DooHickey ~ Star Tag
Tim Holtz ~ DIs, Hinge & Chip Block
Raspberry Road ~ Glory Days

Thanks for looking
enjoy the rest of the day
