Last year we ran the Turkey Day 5K in Minneapolis, mainly because my older boy needed to run a 5K to earn his taekwondo black belt. Since then, we've become addicted, running several as a family (and I ran one by myself!). This year, we had to run the TD5K again. My husband walked with his dad (82!) and I ran the whole way with my boys and my friends Chelsie and Uriah and their baby Graham. I can't tell you how proud I am that we ran the whole way in a semi-respectable pace of 12 minutes per mile. I love this especially since a month ago I had surgery on the bottom of my foot. Woot!
Of course, I had to scrap it. I used a sketch from Elle's Studio for it. Here's the page:
This is not dissimilar to a page I did about my solo 5K. That's OK. Recycle designs, and it's wicked easy to make a page.
I really like printing an 8x12 photo as a backdrop for the page. I liked this one because it gave a sense of exactly how many people were there. 14,000 plus. Wow.
Here's some details:
I added some smaller shots of us because I took them on my phone and they were a bit grainy. They look good small, though. I sanded the edges and adhered them with Stampin' Up! Dimensionals.
I adhered the "Turkey Day" letters in I don't know how many ways before I figured that I needed to house them on an Elle's Studio Tag. They look perfect now.
Note that the sketch had scalloped paper; I didn't want to add paper, so I used a Bazzill stitching template to add subtle scallops.
This was my favorite part: the layered journaling block. I added buttons from October Afternoon, plus twine from Stampin' Up!
Thanks for looking at my page and reading about my big run! So tell me: what are your rituals for Thanksgiving? Do you get out and move? Or is that a goal?
