Will Run for Chocolate

Hey all!  I’m back again with another layout to share!  This time, the layout is actually about ME.  Crazy, right?  Who scraps themselves anymore?  Well, I have been trying, but I have to be honest and say my BOM is the smallest album in the house.  But I am trying to get in FRONT of the camera more…so baby steps!

This layout was inspired by a challenge to use a quote about chocolate.  A couple years ago I ran the Cupid Chocolate Chase 5K in February and it was only 5 degrees out.  It was COLD…but apparently I can be bribed with chocolate and the thought of running with a good friend (also shown in the layout…Hi Chantell!!).

In the spirit of scrapping myself, I used a prompt at Challenge YOUself to use my handwriting.  The layout was getting a bit busy, so I layered over some space on one of the photos…I think I might do that again sometime because I like the effects.

I continue to stash dive as well.  The tree paper is Prima and the other papers are Fancy Pants.  I bought those cute little mugs at a convention a few years back…who knew I would put them on a running layout.  The quotes are also Teresa Collins.  I wanted to use them, but the tags were too much, so I cut them down.

I am also trying to figure out how to share cutting files.  I’m new to WordPress so bare with me!  I promise to get this figured out and will begin posting at least one new cut file each month…so follow along!

Thanks for stopping by!
