Born To Ride

Welcome crafty friends to my blog and my latest page created for the challenge over at 
When I first looked at this challenge I knew the exact photo I wanted to use, I could see it in my mind but I have had to do quite a search to find it. Which external hard drive was it on, well after some time wella, found. This photo was taken of my youngest son Harley some years ago at the Geelong adventure park. He loved the Merry Go Round and had many rides on it that day. 

This month the challenge is a painting called Carousel Delight by Karen Pierce.
