Speed scrap at ESS

Kit used: Family Ties Collab by Digi Designs by Nicole and Shel Bel Scraps
Font: Pea Stacy Fancy and Pea Noodle

I had a lot of fun with this speed scrap. I love love love this kit and was forced out of my comfort zone with the directions that were given. I didn't like my first go, but changed some things around and here's the final product. Much busier than my usual.

My first layout as a CT Member!

I used the fabulous kit from Misty O'Brien called Fort Wilderness. You can get it from her store here.

Here's the preview for you!

This is my first layout as one of Misty O'Brien's CT members! I was really excited to play with her kit Fort Wilderness and hope that you too enjoy my layout. This was a trip to Banff that we took last summer. What I didn't know about sitting in that spot was that three (yes THREE) huge spiders crawled on me and decided to show themselves while driving home. Ugh. I hate spiders. Feel free to leave a comment!

Run Like the Wind

Journaling says: I ran my very first 5K on Aug. 1, 2009. I trained for it for 3 months by following the Couch-to-5K training program. I had never run that far in my life. I was so nervous the week before the race that I had a migraine. A few of my friends were there. I ran with Bekah from my StrollerFit class. My time was 31:25. I look forward to running more races and longer distances.

Kit used: Doohikey Designs, Summer Confessions
Some elements from: MGL, 365 and Madame Wing, My Day My Life
Fastener: Digi Designs by Nicole, Darling Buds of May
Font: Pea Faye
