First 5K

My page for the Scrap Our Stash challenges is up! This page fits in with the June challenge - Stitching (an entry is due by tomorrow if you still want to participate!) and the Sketch #2 challenge (this one is due by July 15!).

There's lots of stitching going on with this page: the background patterned paper is a series of stitch lines and I stitched all of the red and green panels. The sketch that fellow DT member Robin submitted went perfectly with my photos, which were part of a collage print that I had printed at Walgreens that I just simply cut apart. That tip was part of my Frugal Friday post on the same site and here on this blog.

This page is about my first 5K race back home in Iowa. With working on RunMonster, I've now turned into a runner as I do testing of the various features in the app. I completed the Couch 2 5K program in time to make it for the Symphony of Lights 5K around Thanksgiving. It was DH's first 5K too although it wasn't as big of a challenge for him to run the race, hence why there are photos of me running because he decided to run backwards during some of it. The experience was great fun. We later did the Bay 2 Breakers 12K in May....a layout of that race will be coming soon. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
