Going the Distance

Happy Wednesday crafty friends.

I created this page earlier this month and wanted to share it, but with the events in Boston, my heart was broken and it just was not the right time. My thoughts and prayers go out to every person affected by the senseless tragedies in Boston and also in West, Texas.

Today I feel like we are coming together and standing united against terrorism in our great country.  We will go the distance and let justice prevail.  Ironically, this collection I am showcasing today is named "Go the Distance".  I find some peace and inspiration in that and I hope that you will too.

This page is all about our "little athletes".  These guys seriously run, play and are just flat out competitive, all the time. They come by it naturally as their Dad loves to run, which completely inspired the title work.

I used a Memory Box die for the squiggly zig zag. 
The white chevron background and orange "on your mark, get set GO" were cut with my Silhouette Cameo.

I added some Epiphany Crafts Star 25 epoxies and one of Heidi Swapp's sequin gray stars.  The corrugate arrow is Jillibean Soup and I swiped it with Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalk Ink by Quick Quotes.  The base orange paper used here is from the Moxxie "Fish Stories" collection.  The underline bling is from Want2Scrap.  The flair here is from Fancy Pants.

I love all of the fun die cuts and stickers that Moxxie has with their collections, it really makes putting your page together so simple and fast!  I like to cut them apart and make them look entirely different.

Thanks so much for stopping on over today!  Have a super scrappity day!!!

So adorable and what a week they had those poor people. They will unite and be strong.
Senseless cowardly act on innocent people.
Praying they all heal!
