Happy Easter...

Happy Easter!  I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday!  It's time for our next My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette Challenge!  This week I used one of Lauren's newest digital stamps:  SK8R Boy.  Isn't this a great boy card?  It was our nephew, Connor's, birthday this card has already been signed, sealed and delivered!

I'd love to see you play along with our challenge!

And here's a picture from our holiday weekend filled with lots of cousins!  There was a break in the rain yesterday for a few hours and we ran a 5k together.  Some family friends of ours sponsor a 5K race to raise money for kidney and multiple myloma cancer.  They lost their dad to kidney cancer and their mom is a cancer survivor from multiple myloma.  Since we had family in town visiting, we had more runners this year.  We were so lucky with the weather.  We had about a 3 hour break from non-stop rain.  A great morning!  Pat's parents were volunteering on the course...and his dad snapped this cute picture of Laura.
And here's the whole gang post race:  Ryan (13); Connor (12 - the birthday boy!), me, Jonathon (10); Laura (14); Erin (10) and Mike.  Quite the crew!
And here's Ryan getting the trophy for the fastest runner for 14 and under...and a Dick's Sporting Goods gift card which I'm sure will burn a whole in his pocket.  It did make me smile that he tucked his shirt in the get the award...note in the picture above it was least he has a few manners :)!  He finished in 24:22; averaging a 7:51 mile...and Connor finished 3 seconds behind him!  (We won't mention my time...)

This is fantastic that your whole family gets involved, especially when most kids are sitting at home playing video games!

What a great family event! Good for you guys! Glad the rain held off for you - it's nice when Mother Nature cooperates for a good cause. :)
Awesome boy card. I like the pattern along the bottom. Have a happy Easter!

This is one perfect masculine card, Lynn! It's adorable and I love the inked edges.

Hooray on the team effort and Ryan for winning a trophy (and for the detail of tucking his shirt in). Fabulous!
