Being the Mom of a gymnast (now coach), I have really enjoyed the Olympic coverage of these Summer Games!!  As I write, the event Finals for Balance Beam are on.  The US has two athletes in this final.  Earlier tonight Beach Volleyball Semi-finals were on between USA and China - what an amazing display of athleticism!!  Just awesome.  The dedication these athletes have to their sport is simply inspirational.  And to think that each and every athlete began at some point in their childhood.  My daughter Laura and her boyfriend Chad are opening a gymnastics academy in MA.  So many young boys and girls are signing up with great anticipation, with Olympic dreams...
Gymnastics is such a great sport teaching not only cool tumbling, but dedication, time management, respect, and so many other life lessons.  I am so excited for Chad and Laura as they begin this new adventure.

One day while checking out digi sights I found cute gymnast images and thought I would make up some cards for a small rack at their gym.  I know I would have grabbed them when I was the Mom waiting for my daughter's practice to end...  Any way. I used the Sketch from Sketch Saturday.  The image is from Scrappin' Doodles, colored in with Copic Markers. I used paper from Echo Park - Hello Summer, Baker's Twine and some cute buttons.  The sentiment is from Smooches.   I can't wait to make up some of the other images...  =)
