Two post in one week...amazing!

First a shout out to my son Nick who participated in a charity 5K this week and came in 25 out of 168 runners...most of whom are adults. His time was 22:11, so amazing for an 11 year old. He even got to meet his future junior high track coach who took 3rd that day. Here are the official results!

This photo will go on a LO called Determination. That is exactly what this picture says to me.

For those of you that visit regularly you know I must have good news that I want to share to warrant a second post in the same week. Guess what...I do have good news! I will be joining the design team for the new manufacturer Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker.

How great is that! She will also have stamps and other goodies to go with her first 6 lines of paper to be debuted at Summer CHA 2009! Big Congrats Nikki!

Since I am blogging AGAIN...I thought I would share a few more projects.

I did my first 2 projects using Black River Designs. I am loving darn EASY to use. Things just came together and I love the results.

And a cute Happy Birthday card!

And last but not least I have a new LO for Marks Paper Company. I still can't get enough of these papers!

Here is a detail shot, check out the jotters from Creative Chaos Etsy. I swear I use them on everything now.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Summer officially starts here in my house today at 12:30 when the kids are done school and I am super excited to see the end of homework even if it is only for a few month! Enjoy!
