Ready for Some Pictures?

Ok, this is gonna be a long post! For those of you only here for the creative stuff, I've posted that first! IF you are interested in seeing Cort's Special Olympic pics then keep scrolling down!

First, I wanted to show you the LO I created using this cake as an inspiration! Yep, it is seriously the cutest cake EVAH! Noel Mignon is hosting this challenge over HERE. You need to go visit and see what the other talented girls came up with!

I loved the vintage edge this cake had, as well as the colors. So as you know, I love creating vintage things.......so this was pretty easy for me!


I used lots of Graphic 45, Prima, Jenni Bowlin, and vintage goodies. See the old playing cards that create the number 13? And the dress pattern that I scrunched up? I got those from my good friend Mary Ann. She carries fabulous vintage goodies in her Etsy shop.

I love all the new flowers Prima has come out with!!!
OK........this is the end of the "Creative Segment!" On to some photos from this past weekend at Special Olympics. (Yes, Diane, I finally am posting these! : )

Don't ask why I am holding Cort's stomach.....no reason....but looks rather silly don't it?


Only scrapbookers understand the need to take a picture of the sign! LOL!

The entire team minus one of our cheerleaders. Aren't they the cutest?


Brian thought it was stupid to post this pic.....cuz you can't see Cort's face.....but I loved it! IT shows her enthusiasm completely! So the photo is definitely gettin' scrapped!



J** O ** R** D ** A** N** S................................GO JORDANS!!!!! This MUST be the reason the basketball team won the gold!!!!


Yep....................................I adore this girl.......... : )
