When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

Watch out, Lance Armstrong!

Edwin's pedaling as fast as he can on his new bike. It's the first day of school and he doesn't want to be late. Tilda would never let him live it down and besides, he wants to show off his new wheels. He's taking his favorite shortcut and, with any luck, will beat Tilda to the door.
Ooooh, is that the school bell I hear ringing? Hope he makes it.

I embossed his frame with the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder, to look like a cobblestone road, making for a bumpy, but fun ride. Kinda sets your teeth a-chattering, doesn't it?
The epoxy stickers and background paper are from my stash, and he's colored with Copics.
After school, he's headed over to two challenges:
OWH for Anything but Glitter  and Magnolia-licious Highlights for Falll Colors/Back to School.
