Wowser! You are a Crafting Queen.
Love the sparkly redo and the story.

I used to drive a Honda scooter - I loved that it cost me only 75-cents to fill up the tank(20 years ago).

Thank you everybodeeee!!!

I recently got some paperwork from the victim's advocate.  The guy is pleading "not guilty", but I really don't think he'll get away with it...the evidence that it was stolen is pretty blatant!!!  Anyway...WHEN he is convicted, he will have to pay restitution Grin  Now I just need to find all of my receipts  Huh

Lanikins great job- My son's scooter was stolen two months ago with two payments left- relied on it extensively as it was his only means of transportation- it was heart breaking to hear it was stolen- congratulations on getting yours back

I'm hoping your son gets some of the same luck I did...I know how heartbreaking it is.  If you've seen Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, you will know what I am talking about here.  Every time I saw someone riding something with 2 wheels, not only did it bum me out, but I had some of the music from the movie running through my head.

I've been following this on Facebook. I have a song running through ny head too. It's "Do you believe in magic?" I do. Especially in the hands of Lanikins. You are amazing! It must have been gratifying to get it back together and so purdy too! Love love love the sparkle!
