This is my entry for this weeks Lots to Do Challenge which is "The Scenic Route"

Ive been meaning to do this layout for ages. Its a picture of my Dad in his younger day when he was a member of the local Cycling Club.
My Mam and Dad met through the club as they were both members.

Ive managed to incorporate some pieces of maps , places where the club used to ride too, and some actual dried flowers from my dads garden , which I had actually pressed before he died and didnt get to use them.

Im sure many of their rides were on some "Scenic Route " or another and I imagine he would be quite chuffed to be included in the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope you all have a nice weekend.
