How much do you love Katie's awesome tutorial on how to add a painted look to your pages?!? So, so much!

This is yet another page for my Golden Gate bike ride project. Details given on earlier pages, but as a quick recap, some friends and I biked across the Golden Gate bridge a few years ago. I'd paper scrapped a few pages for this project, but never really liked how they turned out, so I put the whole thing away, waiting for inspiration. Pattie's template chat during the last quarterly sale gave me an idea for how to scrap the title page, and I've been on a roll ever since. I won't bore you by posting every page, but I've now re-scrapped nearly every page of this project, using DD templates for most of the photos. There are some photos that I want on their own separate pages, and this is one of those. It's a bit blurry--the photographer was ahead of the pack, and she turned back to face us and snapped the photo while she rode. I really like that she captured us as we rode toward her. (Nearly every other shot of us on our bikes was taken from behind.) We're on the Marin side of the bridge--the north side--riding along a bike trail heading toward the town of Tiburon, where we (mercifully! Smile ) caught the ferry back to San Francisco. I knew I wanted to scrap this photo but wasn't sure what I was going to do, and then I saw a link to Katie's tutorial in the forums.

Oh, and I'm in this photo, but you'll have to hunt to find me. You know that saying, "It's just like riding a bicycle?" People use this saying to imply that something is easy, that even if you haven't done it in a while you should be able to pick it up again just like that. Well, I'm here to tell you that you might remember how to do something, but actually doing it is another thing altogether! Before this excursion, I hadn't ridden a bike in years. I remembered how to do it all right--after all, it's not just like riding a bike, it is riding a bike!!--but wow! Was I ever slow! And don't even get me started on biking up the hills! So where am I in this photo? Behind the two people walking, back farther along the path, around the curve, you'll see a speck. Did you find the speck? Okay, now go back farther, behind the speck. Smile So, so glad we took the ferry back! Wink
