July 4th Color Run Shadow Box

Ah, the fun runs of summer.  As you all know by now I love being outdoors this time of year and while I'm not really much of a runner I enjoy signing up and doing the fun and mud runs.  So when I found out that a special edition of the Color Run was coming to town on July 4th I didn't hesitate to sign up.  And this year I got to run with my good friend Millie so that made it even more fun.  We had a great time and pushed each other to keep on running.

Of course my husband was there to cheer me on and take pictures as he always does so when I got home I chose my favorite shot and went to work creating this shadow box.  Thank goodness I had the foresight to keep my water cup at the last water station and my girlfriend thought to pick up some of the confetti as we crossed the finish line.

I used the running border cut from the Sports Mania cartridge and cut it in three different colors to represent the Patriotic spirit of July 4th and the colors they threw on us throughout the race.

And since this was a summer time event I'm going to enter it in the Summer Time challenge over at Craftin Desert Divas where anything summer goes.
