Assistance Needed

Okay all you creative ladies out there. I need your help. Several of my friends are running in the Denver Marathon/Half Marathon this weekend. I want to give them a little something. They are all running in honor of Lizzie. The Denver ABC station is actually going to interview my friends Sami and Joe and some of the members of Team Lizzie. I thought about printing out pictures of the one above, putting them in a frame, and tying a rainbow ribbon around them (rainbows were a favorite of Lizzie's). What do you think? Any other ideas? They leave on Friday AM, so I have to get cracking. Nothing like leaving it till the end. :)

What about including a water bottle, and a power bar, with a pair of socks or something
wrapped up with a ribbon for good luck. You could also include the logo for the gift tag.

I can't believe they are already running another marathon. That's awesome!

No I am not running. My foot bothers me off and on so I just stick with shorter distances. Way to go Donna on the 12 mile run!!! :)

love jenny's idea of the package and what about taking jelly belly sport beans in different flavors (open the packs and combine them) so they would be rainbow bags of the sport beans?

Well looks like you have some good ideas. Do you need me to deliver something to them for you since I live here in Denver?

You're such a supportive friend to them!!! Good Luck Team Lizzie!!!

I have no ideas, because when it comes to creative ideas, I am a vacant space, but wanted to wish you good luck and have fun!
