I DID IT! Layout

A few weeks ago I ran my first 5K race! I’m very happy I did it! I’ve never raced before or ran really either. It’s been on my bucket list for a while now and this was the year to get it done! And, you know what? I really like it. I like running. It’s fun and my body is strong enough now to handle it. I definitely surprised myself. My time was great! My goal was to finish the race in 45 minutes and I did it in 38:15! Amazing! The cool weather really helped me out that day.

For this follow-up layout to my training layout, I decided to scraplift myself and just change a few elements on my page. I wanted to keep them pretty much the same so that there is no mistaking that the two layouts went together. I used the Front Porch collection by Pebbles along with the From Me to You collection here:



I used a couple of the Picture Frame Hang Tags for my pics and layered pattern papers, vellum, pretty leaves, and of course more flowers.



I used a Library Pocket to hold my journaling. I traced the “smile” word from the sentiment on this Library Pocket to make it pop a bit more on my page. I used the From Me to You Memo pattern paper for the journaling paper this time.


Pretty Computer Font Time! I used Arial Narrow for the journaling in this pocket.
