A layout and challenges!

My friend and I have challenged each other to scrap at least two things a can be a layout or a card.  We each come up with a challenge each Sunday, so two total for the week.  Her challenge to me was based on this sketch.  I think it came from the  Pocket Full of Posies blog.
Here is my take on it. Sorry for the glare and the crappy picture, I'm really hoping to get a new camera with my tax return, mine is really on it's last leg.  I did tweak the sketch a little bit, but had fun with it and used a collage of pics of Ash getting her learners permit! I used Bo Bunny Ad Lib line, very cute, fun papers for a teen!

My challenge to my friend was based on this picture from the Bo Bunny blog, as of right now, I don't think either one of us has started on this challenge.  Life just tends to get in the way, but I'm hoping to work on it in the next couple days.  I really like the banner, and as popular as banners have been lately, I've really never made one, or used one on a layout, except for a digi one.  I have these super cool Vintage Banner stamps from Unity that I want to play with!

On to my other challenge with my co-workers.  Last week, I ran/walked 10 miles and did a 40 minute sculpt dvd. I'm trying to eat better and I've just been taking it a day at a time, some days I do really well, and some days, not so much.But, I am trying to make more of my days healthier than not, and I think that will be the key and be more sustainable.

Other stuff: my son surprised us on Thursday afternoon and drove up from Vegas to watch Ashlie's basketball game. WE all were so excited to see him and Ash was so happy she was in tears. Even though our team lost, Ash did great in the sophmore and JV game,scoring a total of 16 points.  Unfortunately, she also got hurt.  We have to see an orthopedic on Tuesday and have to have a dr release before she can play again.  :(   Hopefully, it she won't be out long. 

Had a great weekend, have tomorrow off work....YAY!!!  I just love days off, they make me happy!!!  Hope you all have a great rest of your Sunday and if you have tomorrow off, hope you enjoy it!!
