Wherever You Go....


Isn't he a handsome (a bit sweaty too) young man? Jordan's team ended up being 5-1 for the season. I couldn't see this game under the big lights last night because I was home with Calvin (who is feeling a bit better today) but I was there in spirit. I am so proud of him! He has somehow managed to play football for school, premier soccer, and get straight As in honors classes. I am not sure how he does it! I often tell him that he doesn't need to do it all.....just enjoy the little things.... but he insists and thrives on challenging himself and excelling. What a man he is becoming!! :)

Wherever you go, Jordan, you will go far! :)

Okay, back to cards. :)
Here are a few cards I made with the Wherever You Go October Kit of the Month from Unity!

I used some of the Indian Summer pp form Basic Grey.

This one uses the Boyfriend line from Cosmo Cricket! I {heart} Cosmo!


I wanted this little guy to be 'sitting' on the Sassafras Lass paper edge. :)
Be sure sure to check out the other DT inspiration....links are on the Unity BLOG! :)
Enjoy your Thursday......wherever you go! :) :)
