Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day! I hope everyone had nice weather this weekend. Our weather was gorgeous! Beach Weather!
It's a perfect day for doggie beach, and fun and games in the sand!
Jena is getting to be a real Frisbee dog!
Hmmm... a swimming dog?
Good girl, Jena!
This is what FUN looks like! LOL!
I hope everyone had a fun Memorial Day. Three day weekends seem to go by so FAST. It's back to work tomorrow...

Card Share..

My niece graduated from college and we got the cutest graduation party invitations from my cousin. I couldn't resist those great colors! So I cut up the invitation and created a quick and easy "Happy Graduation" card set.
Here is a closeup of the card. The stamp set is from my friend, Mary. It says "Follow your dreams..."
And the stamp for the inside of the card makes me LOL!
Congratulations, Karin!

It's Card Kit Time!!!

I'm so blessed to have found a great group of ladies online to play with! This card kit club has been so much fun! We have already completed a round of fun and have just started around again. This month, Beth shared a wonderful kit stuffed full of Berry Goodness! Thank-you, Beth!

In the past, we have been so BAD at taking pictures of our card kit before cutting into it. (I just get so excited when the kit comes in the mail) We decided to have the hostess of the month take the picture for everyone. So, here is the kit that Beth sent to us (picture taken by Beth):

The first thing that caught my eye was that big strawberry stamp. I just knew that's what I wanted to use first! I got out my Copics and colored it:

Next, all those cute embellies were just screaming "CLUSTER ME!" So, cluster I did! And I created this card using one of the cute BERRY sentiments. I added a little strip of red paper (I think this might have been left over from Mary's kit)to add a little color POP!

I just had to use this next sentiment. It's that time of year when I need graduation cards, and this is such a cute sentiment for congratulations! I needed something to make the fussy cut "berry" stand out, so I added a strip of aqua paper which again was from Mary's kit last month. (Don't you just love it when things are on hand, when you don't clean up, lol!)

I LOVE the uniqueness of round cards and was excited to use the tag image to create this FUN card! I got my Copics out again and colored away!

Thanks for stopping by, now go checkout the BERRY goodness from the other ladies in the group!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

I wish all the Mother's out there a Happy Mother's Day. My family is making me feel very special and blessed this morning.

Look what Cheryl made for me... I just LOVE it!! She is the SWEETEST and talented too, hehehe... I'm going to frame this one for my scrap room!

Chris made me a new blog header.. with this message:

Happy Mother's Day Mom <33333
I made you this blog header. I didn't think that port-o-potties matched people places and things that you love very well, so I made you one with people, places, and things that you love <3
I love you <3

That is a lot of pictures! He did a great job picking out things that I LOVE! What a special gift from my SPECIAL guy!

I got these beautiful flowers from Jim. I don't know what I would do without him. He is the BEST!

He also got up early this morning made breakfast, washed my car... AND made heart shaped cookies. The kids appreciated that one too :oD

Did anyone tell you that they love you today? Hi, Jena, love you bunches!

Happy Mother's Day to ALL!!!! Have a WONDERFUL day!

OC Half-Marathon

Today was our 5th race in our 12 races in 2012, AND it was Cheryl's very first half-marathon. We got up at 4:30am to get to the race for a 6:15am start. This is a point to point race... starting from Fashion Island and ending at the Orange County Fairgrounds.

We met up with my friend, Paloma, from work, which was a miracle considering there were 10,000 people running in this race. Look at that sea of people... and that sea of people need a whole fleet of port-o-potties, hahaha! Have you ever seen so many port-o-potties? (blog header)

Well, somthing went wrong with the web site... my stats and Cheryl's stats are missing. We ran together and finished in 2hrs 9 minutes. That's faster than my first half marathon! She ran the whole thing without stopping.

Here's Chris's stats:
Overall: 1353 out of 8708
Men: 930 out of 3472
M 16-19: 15 out of 42
Age/Grade: 53.01%
Place: 2528
Finish: 1:54:20
Pace: 8:44

I told Cheryl that her first half-marathon would be her hardest. She said that she hopes so, because that was really HARD!

Next race: Rock n' Roll San Diego Half-marathon!

CR84FN Color Challenge

This is my first time participating in the CR84FN color challenge. The colors this week are pink, aqua, and neutral. The colors are more girlie than I usually use, but I think it came out nice and, uh, girlie. I did add green leaves. After all, leaves must be green ;oD
