Love the Olympics...

For the last 2 weeks, we have been totally hooked on the Bejing 2008 Olympic games. Wow. Michael Phelps' 8 gold medals... Dara Torres age 41 silver medalist... women's beach volleyball gold, US gymnasts performances in the midst of controversy... US basketball at it's best (even if Coack K is the coach... had to pull for him this once)... Greensboro's Caroline Lind winning gold on the women's "8 person" rowing squad... equestrian events, table tennis, water polo, soccer, track, kayaking, wrestling, synchronized diving... too many sports watched here for me to remember and name them all - it's been amazing!

Made me want to scrap our Olympic experience. Kent & I attended the Atlanta 1996 Olympics and I finally did these layouts:

"a Gold Medal Memory" was inspired by an ad challenge over at the Big Wig Crop, put on by Big Picture Scrapbooking and Key Lime Crops. Lots of fun over there, but I haven't had time to play much.

I'll be sad to see the 2008 Olympics end, but at least I'll get more sleep!
