Happy Monday Montage, my friends!!! Saturday was officially THREE WEEKS until I will be running the Great Wall Marathon ... and I have decided that I must be completely BONKERS ... but more on that later ... I have a couple of really FUN things to share. Both of these were samples I made for the 2016 OnStage Event here in Salt Lake City. LOVELOVELOVE the new In Colors ... SO much!!!!

Ok ... so I haven't ever mentioned here on my blog that I am part of an A-MAZ-ING running group called Huntsman Hometown Heroes. We run and train together starting at the beginning of the year (before "race" season). And every team member is COMMITTED to being a REASON FOR HOPE and helping to find a cure for cancer. All monies we fundraise (as in 100%!!!) go to the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City (WORLD CLASS!!)! I have made a goal to raise $500 myself ... and have reached the $150 mark!! HOORAY!!! I am aiming toward reaching my goal before we leave for China and the Great Wall Marathon in TWO WEEKS (my friend says she saw a meme that quoted, "Any crazy person can run. It takes a SPECIAL kind of CRAZY person to run a marathon!!" SOOOO true!!). I know I can do it with the help of my stamp-y friends!!! Please click on THIS LINK if you'd like to donate (even $5 ... less than the cost of a roll of Glue Dots ... helps!!!)!!! You guys are AWESOME!!!

You can also click on this photo to take you to the donation page as well (that photo in the upper-left-hand corner is of me and my father three months before he died ... it's such a treasure to me!!!) ...

And yeah ... that's MY toe ... and MY blister!!! I've EARNED that!!! (And more than I'd like to count!!!)  Every one is worth it!!!

Click "Back" for Melissa Stout and "Next" for Amy O'Neill ... I haven't seen what they have made ... YET ... but I'm just as excited as I know that all of YOU are!!!
