Keep Swimming

 Keep Swimming - The challenge at Craft Your Days Away is Olympic Dreams and we are sponsored by Bugaboo.

Everyone has dreams, but for most of us it doesn't include the Olympics. It is just to high of a bar for most of us to reach. This makes the Olympics and our awesome athletes all the more modern day heros. It is more than just training, it is that rare blend of talent, training and opportunity.

I am proud of what the athletes from my country have accomplished and of how hard they have all worked to get there.

My DP are from Target's Dollar spot. I bought this package about 5 years ago, so it has been in my stash for a long time.

My star punch is MS. I used a few star buttons.

My image is Bugaboo's BF Swimming and is colored with Copics.
