Kraftin' Kimmie Saturday Challenge12-Heavy Metal

Tara is our Hostess this week and came up with a fabulous challenge-Heavy Metal....being a rocker, I made sure that I listened to AC/DC when creating this project! lol........The challenge is to use Metal Embellishments. I've had this board from the Dollar store for quite some time. After I coloured up this sweet new Wagon Ride image and cut it out, I decided I like it too much to simply use it on a card. I dug through my collections of frames to see if I had one that would compliment the size of the image, but really couldn't find one to work. Thus the Board!

Wagon Ride will be available this Sunday! Did you ever have a little red wagon mishap?? I had a red wagon, but was fortunate enough not to have endured any trauma in it........but Bicycles, well that is a totally different story..........our family didn't have too much luck with bicycles. While racing around the Church Gravel covered parking lot one day, I took a curve too fast and DOWN I went!!!! OUCH.........I hobbled on over to my friends house, where her mom slapped a bandaid on it..........having had 6 kids, I guess she didn't think it was a big deal.

When my mom got home and had a look, well that was a different story.........and thus a trip to the emergency dept..............Fourteen stitches and a cast later..........I had to stay off my bike.

Well and then my Mom got the bright idea that she would purchase Bicycles for her and Dad so that we could do family Bike Rides. Not just any bikes.........matching PURPLE Dad was REAL impressed with the colours. So one fine sunny Sunday morning, we all set out for a leisurely ride........Me, Mom, Happy Family.......NOT for long!!!

Mom and Dad hadn't even gotten to the end of the block when the COLLISION occured......I'm really not sure who caused it, but all I remember is the two of them in a heap on the ground, my dad, knees drawn up, clutching Mom, yelling at him saying that he cut her off........him insisting it was she that drove in front of him and announcing that he had scraped his "hind wheels!" HONESTLY...........It wasn't so amusing at the time, but I kind of chuckle when I think about it now........Dad seemed to recover........Mom continued to blame....for weeks and weeks actually and Dad's posterior never gracing that Bicycle seat again......we went back to Sunday Drives in the Car, listening to Merle Haggard on the 8 Track and stopping for some Fish & Chips and Orange Pop!

Hope that you'll play along with us this week! Head on over to the Challenge Blog to get all the deets on the play and how to hook us up with your creations!!
