This inspiration for this page came from both challenges.
Let's start with the Lindy's challenge:
I started with the following items, but a few changed along the way. I was inspired by the dark contour of the image with the lighter blue from the car giving it some light in the middle of the page. The old car got me the idea of using a distressed look for my page. Products used are listed below.
I love how I was able to add the gorgeous colors to this stunning 7 Dots studio background paper:
Now time for the More Than Words Challenge

As I saw the FEARLESS part of the challenge I knew exactly what picture I had to use for my page. During our vacation in Riviera-Maya, we went on an excursion called Jungle Maya. Now 2 activities were a challenge for my eldest son Philippe (on the left side of the photo) and myself. We are both scarred of heights and during this excursion we had to do Zip lines and also repelling into a Cenote.
This picture was taken in the Cenote just after the repelling part of the Excursion. No need to tell you that we were really pleased to have completed this part. Letting yourself drop backwards into a hole when you do not see the bottom for someone who is scared of heights is quite a challenge. But we made it and I was especially proud of Philippe for going thru with this challenge.
The GRUNGE part of the challenge gave me the idea of using the gears, in zip line and also in the repelling part, the gears play a huge element in both activities, then some distressing and dark spots to add to the Jungle element of our excursion. Here are a few more detailed pictures:
