February Scrapbook Page
Ok, this is the last post today, I promise! I also promise myself that every month I would do at least one scrapbook page. Yes, I know that others do one page a week but I should really be focusing on school and not doing any! :P So, I did this layout for my 2009 NY Marathon scrapbook and I used the Tuesday Morning Sketches' colors and ten lacing brads for the Scrap Our Stash 10 for '10 challenge. This is the first time I've ever done any journaling on a page and the first time I've ever had a scrapbook page all laid out in my head before I laid it out on paper. In fact, I took this photo of my shoe when I took off the real shoelaces to retrieve my d-tag from my shoe. This is an 8x8 page so that shoe isn't 10 inches tall it's more like 6. :) That's pretty close to real life which goes pretty well with the real d-tag (BTW - the d-tag is the timing device that they use for making sure that people actually run the race and to get an official finish time) and the real color of the laces. The TMS colors this week are chocolate chip, vanilla, and light orange. I did pretty well with the vanilla and chocolate chip but deviated a little bit with the light orange. See, the shoe laces that I actually wore on my shoes were BRIGHT orange and matched the d-tag. So, I'm sorry Melissa, I hope you understand! :)
