Awesome weather!

We're having a fabulous summer!!! Kids are enjoying the sun and the water as we try out different pools, water parks, little beach areas and, of course, the sprinkler. So fun!

I just ran 5K this morning so I'm feeling refreshed.  A bit worried though about my long run tomorrow morning. Last week we were only supposed to do 9K and it ended up being 11K.  Now that may not sound like a big leap to some of you but it most definitely is for me.  Tomorrow we're supposed to do the same so I'm hoping that I will feel good and not like I want to lie down on the sidewalk for a nap!!!

A short post today to just share some layouts and a card that I did this week.

"10 Things we love about you"

Supplies used: Core'dinations (CoreEssentials, Black Magic, Vintage and WhiteWash), Cuttlebug embossing template and Cricut cartridge Graphically Speaking, Making Memories letter stickers, American Crafts brads, Fiskars border punch

"Almost 9"
Supplies used: Core'dinations (Core Essentials, Black Magic, Vintage), My Little Shoebox patterned papers, letter stickers and overlay images 

"Birthday Wishes"
