Adore and some tidbits

HI!!!! Well, i am still alive after the 10K run!!! OMG it totally wore me out though. My daughter took some before and after pics and I was too ashamed to show the after pic (after got home and showered) I looked like I had been beat half to death! LOL I ran 6 miles in just under 1 hour and 20 mins. That to me is a little slow because my husband is a marathon runner but hey... I had never ran more than 3 miles so it was an accomplishment. My daughter took the pic above of me running past the finish line. I was wonderful and can hardly wait to do it again.
Then WICKED was absolutely AMAZING! The props and acting, everything was superb!
I did hear two ladies behind me saying that they saw Wicked in St Louis and it just did not compare to Nashville, they said Nashville was tons better.
Now...on to my page. This is of course Grace while we where in Florida. I had actually scrapped this pic in one of Dawn McVey's color challenges but HATED the layout. So I re did it and LOVE this one. The base page is The Angel Co, polka dot paper is Jennie Bowlin (LOVE her stuff). The striped paper is DCWV. The flowers and lace is The Paper Studio as well as the flat pearls and brads. I swiped White Pigment Ink across the pink paper and also the Clear Cardstock from PTI that I placed over the photo to make a border around the pic. The little butterflies were punched with Martha Stewart punch. And the Adore was cut using my beloved Cricut and the Home Accents Cartridge. Well thanks so much for your visit today. I hope you come back!!!
