Runner... A page from my SmashBook!

I Truly enjoy making pages for my Smash Book! I have all the photos in my phone so when I make them I do know which photos I will be adding!

The High - Top sneakers (which I haven't worn since the 10th grade! Retro fun!) Are from Paisley Cricut Cartridge I added the Paisley because the bandana that I wear has pink paisleys on it.
I picked up this polka dot paper from the CKC Mesa about 2 Years ago
Blossom Twine from the Twinery
Scallop border punch
Flower journal tag from Fancy Pants About a Girl 
Runner from Sizzix Die Cuts

Wish Big!

Yesterday my Husband and I squeezed into his Pack-Raft and went rafting down the Salt River! It was so much fun. Somehow I ended up rowing the entire time! We are in training for our next adventure! I woke up this morning and can barely move my arms LOL!!

Anyways afterwards my Mom said my girls could spend the rest of the day with her so I was able to craft ALONE!!

I spent most of my time searching the challenges! But still managed to make a card!
