CASE Study #152 and Outside Lands Review and Photos

Yipppee, finally feeling like be crafty! I planned on getting a card or two made yesterday but I was just beat from 3 days of rocking out in San Francisco, which is always a blast!  First my card, so glad I decided to get one made for this week's CASE Study, I am almost out of time.  I have been playing with Lucy this morning and found this fun arrow and thought it would be great for my card, and then a touch of bling to finish it off. 

I think I was channeling festive colors for my card, you will see once you get a peek at some of the photo's I took this past weekend....WARNING, this post is photo heavy!!
Friday was just amazing, Ashleigh sprinted for the rail as usual, at least one day of the 3 day festival we have to be on the rail, it is just tradition.  This year it was to be up close and personal for Paul McCartney and wow, what a show did he put on! For 3 solid hours too and never once out of breath, wonderful music and fabulous stories.  He opened up with "8 Days a Week" and I think all 65,000 fans were singing along! We had a blast all 3 days, we saw Nine Inch Nails (one of my favorites), Red Hot Chili Peppers and Hall & Oats and so many more bands.  This was our third year going and we are looking forward to next year too. We have so much fun trying to guess who the head liners will be each year, so we will have to see if they are thinking the same as us, fingers are crossed.  So now on to all the photos....Thank you so much for taking time to stop by and peek at my card....have a wonderful week!
