The layout Wendy chose as the SSL this week is one of my all-time faves! Love every single thing about it... I wanted to copy it completely. But, of course, that didn't happen... haha! That said, I took a lot of inspiration from Liz here... neutral background (which I think we all know, I've used more than once... LOL), single photo (in one of my favorite frames!) and twisted brushes in the background! I didn't frame my layout with stitches but used a twisted version here. I also added another of the "all around" frames at the top left to balance the rest of the elements and journaling. Thank you, Wen and Liz... super inspiration this week!

This is a quick shot I took of Shannon after she finished running the OC Half Marathon last weekend. This was another huge race (22,000 overall... 8,000+ for the half marathon) and it was super fun because it was local! The race started in the same shopping center where Shannon works and ended at the county fairgrounds about 2 miles from our home. At just over Mile 10, the course came within a block of our house, so Rick (and the dog!) was able to watch her run, too!
