Kiwi Lane BLOG HOP!

Blog Hop Header

Good morning! I am so excited to be apart of the Kiwi Lane Designs BLOG HOP! You should have came from Alicia's blog, if not you'll want to go back to the Kiwi Lane Designs Blog to start from the beginning!

I had the pleasure of working with the Tiny Bracket Templates! These were so made for my Project Life album ;) The perfect size to add interest to your 4x6 and 3x4 cards: just trace onto cardstock or patterned paper, trim with scissors or an exacto knife. Inking the edges hides any imperfections!  Love them!

I typically create the traditional "weekly" Project Life pages. You can see my 2013 and 2014 album pages HERE. This week, I decided to make a spread devoted to the Color Run that my husband, friends, and I ran 2 weeks ago. We took SOOO many photos I just couldn't pick one to cram in that week (which also included EASTER!). So here goes..


Talk about COLOR! Right? :)  Well it was the "Color Run" which is named the "Happiest 5K on the Planet". And let met tell you .. it was FUN!

Close up of left side:


and the right:


I used the "Bracket 4T" and repeated it twice to get this design on the top of my title card. I journaled with a white pen the place and date of the race.  That runner is white embossed from a stamp set by My Creative Time.


Pre-race "facebook approve" selfie of my sweet hubby and I. Everyone got shirts, sunglasses, headbands, and other fun accessories for the race.  I love that transparency on the left!  I layered 2 of the same brackets for the right border.


I took a picture of my bib and shrunk it for this 3x4 card.  We ran through Camden Yards baseball stadium so had to get a before pic in front. I used Bracket 2T for the bottom edge of the photo.


 Did you see the Academy Awards and Ellen's selfie pic she tweeted?   This was our take! lol!!


My hubby took this pic of me as we were getting ready to go through the green color. I used "Bracket 3T" and another white embossed stamp from My Creative Time. Under that arch in the background, race people throw colored (cornstarch?) powder on you and by the end.. well.. you'll see what we look like ;) 


Here's the group "after" shot of all the girls. I teach with these wonderful ladies!  The black card seemed to achor all the brightness ;)


Victory!!! At the finish line, they give each runner a pack of color to throw in celebration. Love this action shot!!


It was all fun and games until my darling hubby DUMPED his blue powder pack over my head.   He thought it was HILARIOUS until I reminded him I was riding home in HIS truck! HA! Last laugh! ;)


Another "after" selfie to prove I didn't disown him after that stunt ;)  I was just relieved it all washed off - after all the next day was EASTER!
