Another proud mommy moment!

Tanner had his Special Olympics track and field meet last Friday. What a blast! He participated in the 50 M run, the 4 person relay, the standing long jump, and the softball throw...
oh, and a few events of his own that he made up, like the tire roll and the net untangle!

Can you tell that there were a few moments that he got tired of sitting around waiting? What a funny kid!

REMEMBER: Let me win, but if I can not win, let me be brave in the attempt!

One Proud Mama

So I got a call the other day from my daughter's SK teacher. She wanted to invite us to the next Recognition Awards Assembly at the school. YUP. My darling daughter was receiving an award! So, at the tender age of 5, she has received a Certificate of Achievement in LITERACY! I am so proud! She is an awesome reader, but she was chosen for this based on her writing skills!

Here's a pic of her with her award. Watch for the layout to follow soon! Have a great weekend everyone!

Ok, here's MY reveal... don't forget to check out the following blogs for more inspiration from this kit! Kim, Heather, and guest designer Sarah.

My poor neighbours. They have plastic shopping bags stuck in their trees. Not very green, I know. We have limited the bags to in the house now!

Ah, MY GIRL! We had a fabulous day at the park and I LOVE these shots! I used one of the patterned papers that had white on it to mat all of the photos. I used white foam thickers that I inked for the title...

Tanner LOVES the trampoline my parents bought the kids! I really wanted the focus to be on the photos. I didn't end up matting them, but I did use a dark blue Tombow marker to outline them all.

On this layout, I cut a circle out of the orange bling cardstock and then I cut a circle a little bigger from the patterned paper. I turned that circle over and inked it with orange ink. I then pieced it back together and then offset the orange bling circle slightly.

I don't even know if Elsie was really sad in this photograph, or if she was just tired of posing for me while I played with my new camera! Either way, I LOVE this shot! I knew it had to be a large, one-photo layout! (Oh, and I'm not quite sure what's going on with the colour in the pic of the layout... but you get the idea!)

This started out as a "simple" card in my head, but then the layers just grew and grew... but I am happy with the end result. I just have to stop designing in the wee, wee hours of the night.
