24th Edition PRE-Sneak Party: Running in Color

by Veronica

Hey there! Welcome to the very FIRST My Creative Time PRE-Sneak Party. Today the Design Team will be showcasing stamps from the NEWEST MCT edition (which will officially release on Friday, April 19th). But there's a catch... we're not spilling the beans on what is new in our projects. More on that later...

If you've arrived here from Tracy's  blog, then you're on the right track! If not, hop on over to Emma's blog to party from the very beginning.

As you may know, over the last year I've adopted a much healthier lifestyle I've reached my goal weight! Woohoo! One of the major changes has been running. And guess what? Nothing's even chasing me! This year, The Hubs and I have two kinda-crazy goals:
  1. Run at least one official race every month
  2. Run the Detroit Marathon on October 20, 2013. That's 26.2 miles. Twenty-six. POINT two. Because 26.3 would be nuts, right? *giggle* 
In fact, today (Friday, April 13th) I'm out running a 10k with my other half and a couple of friends. April race: check!

Somehow, I've convinced my BFF to join me (and a gaggle of others, including The Hubs) in running the Color Me Rad Detroit 5k in May. This is her first 5k and I'm really looking forward to running it right next to her. This isn't just any ol' race, though. This is a 'color run'.

As we run the race in all-white, we will be showered with colored cornstarch. By the time we're through, our clothes (and bodies) will be a colorful MESS. How FUN is that?!?! We have seven people running on our team. Team name: Slow Expectations!

To get my BFF pumped for the BIG DAY, I've made this simple 4.5" square card inspired by the race itself.

Can YOU see what's new?



***GIVEAWAY ALERT***
Would you like to win one of the AMAZING new sets from this release? All you have to do is guess what new item I'm featuring on my project today and leave a comment with your answer! The more blogs you comment on, the better your chances at winning! Winner will be announced on our "official" first day of sneak peeks on Monday, April 15th! You have until Saturday, April 13th at 11:59pm to leave your comments! Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by to PARTY with me today! I'm the last stop.

I hope you were inspired!

- Veronica

P.S. The Hubs and I are super excited to be running the Detroit Marathon this year, but we're not doing it alone! We've teamed up with 1300 other people at our church (yep, you read that right: THIRTEEN HUNDRED) to raise money for clean water for the Pokot in Kenya. If you're interested in learning more or feel inspired to donate to this truly awesome cause, check out the Hope Water Project link in the sidebar. We're also super happy to accept your prayers for the Pokot and for our safe training and marathon. Thanks!
