It's Monday again

Happy Monday everyone!!!!
I hope your weekend was as wonderful as ours. Saturday K had her swim meet and did a fabulous job. She came in first for one of her heats, third, third and fourth for the others. She dropped 6 seconds off of her breaststroke and 4 seconds off her backstroke. The other two she didn't have times for yet. I am so amazed at how physically fit both of my girls are. K swam the 200 and made it look easy. I know for a fact I would be dying.
Yesterday after church the girls and I did their shopping for their Operation Christmas Child boxes. Have you heard of this program? If not make sure to click the link above and check it out. It is a wonderful program and the girls and I look forward to shopping for their gifts every year around this time.
I got a little bit of scrapping in this weekend as well. Can't show you the card I made for Card-a-licious yet but I can share this one I did for Sizzix. I used the Bird and Swirls die to cut the bird out of orange felt and then added some Stickles to his wing. He was super easy to make and the Sizzix go through the felt perfectly.

I also realized that I didn't share one of my Magistical Memories projects from two weeks ago. Crystle has started creating not only chipboard but acrylic shapes. The flourish in the middle is called the Crystle Clear Wrought Iron Swirl. I simply covered it with black glitter before adding it to my layout. The tab and flower are also from MM. I just love these pictures of the girls, they make me smile every time I look at them. :)

I need to get a picture of K's most recent reading spot. She created a nook (aka. pile 'o junk) next to her bed where she loves to read now.
Thanks for stopping by this morning and have a wonderful week!

Love the card and layout, Lisa! Fantastic as always! Your layout brings back many *reading* memories from childhood. I always had a book with me - still do, usually. ;)

Brrrr.......sounds cold to be doing swim meets at this time of year. You guys must be year-round swimmers. Congrats to K on her awesome times!
How pretty your card is, Lisa! I love the orange felt bird. And your page is so pretty, too.
