We had a skateboard when we were kids. We used to skateboard down a hill that was pretty much straight down and ended on another street. The speeds we reached were........well, let's just say I wouldn't want to know - and we never knew if there was a car coming until we were at the bottom..a little late if I do say so now!  

I grew up with two brothers, one of which is still an adrenaline junkie to this day. So when we went skateboarding, I HAD to "keep up with the boys" tee hee. I don't remember any major injuries from skateboarding (I don't know how there weren't!) but we did have some pretty good spills!

Seeing this stamp from the new All About Boys release at High Hopes Rubber Stamps brought back so many good memories! It was so fun to do! 

I coloured Gabriel with alcohol markers (list below) and fussy cut him and popped him up with pop dots. My background is some brick paper cut to look like he is skating in front of a wall that is falling down. I added some mini splatters on the wall for a "graffiti" look. 
I used a die to cut out the hill he is skating on from cardstock and dabbed some grey and black ink on it to make it look like concrete. This "hill" is also popped up with pop dots. I finished it off by adding some YNS gum drops.
