Bree Renwick and I did TWO races last weekend at Disneyland (10K and Half Marathon) ... not gonna lie ... they were BRUTAL because of the HEAT!!! It was 101 degrees with 44% humidity when we FINISHED that Half in the MORNING (started at about 5:45AM)!!! TOOO-TOOO hot!!! I did another half marathon just yesterday and it felt SOOOO much easier with the temps staring in the 60's ... pretty sure we are NOT gonna do a Disney Run again unless it is in JANUARY!!

Fab Friday #120

Greetings from the Happiest Place On Earth (aka Disneyland!) ... and welcome to Fab Friday!!! We still have two days to go ... and a race to run on each day ... and we are ALREADY tired!! I'm here with my besties and fellow stampin' girl, Bree Renwick. We ran the Disneyland Half Marathon three years ago and decided to come back for MORE (so, we are doing both the Half AND the 10K - on separate days, of course!). Adventure awaits!!

The color combo for this week's Fab Friday Challenge made me think of all things groovy ... and the 70's ... which I remember ... which some of you do not ... because you weren't even BORN yet ... which is depressing ... but I digress ... I couldn't get the "Mystery Van" from "Scooby Doo" out of my head when I saw these colors. And I couldn't let the concept of flowers and grooviness pass me by! I got some happy goin' on RIGHT here!

Stamps: Daisy Delight
Paper: Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Tranquil Tide, Diamond Dust Glimmer Paper
Ink: Tranquil Tide
Accessories:  Daisy Punch, Circle Framelits, Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Simply Scored Board








Riiiiggghhhttt Onnnnn ...
