More Scrapbooking Fun

As promised, here are a few more pictures of some of the pages from my race scrapbook that I finished week before last.  I haven't posted every single opening (there'd be so many!), but I hope you enjoy getting a taste of how I've saved all my race memories.

I know a lot of you said you didn't have the time or creativity to do something like this, but I really think it's a piece of cake if you really want to consolidate your memories.  I don't usually do a ton of fancy stuff.

Basically, I print only the pictures that I really like and want to scrap.  For each race, I make sure I also have my number and certificate.  If the race gave me a sticker with the race name on it, I always use that.  Then, it's just a matter of picking a cute paper for the background and then coordinating colors to back my pictures.  I trim them down to get rid of excess picture and I use a corner rounder to round the corners.  I find an arrangement that looks cool, and then I stick it all down.

I filled up an album, so it'll be fun to start a new one when I start racing again!  Enjoy!

I love your pages! Wish I would have kept some of my stuff from my first few races, although, I guess it isn't to late to start now. You will love looking back on these.

ps--this is the calorie counter I like: http://www.thecaloriecounter.com/

Love it! I'm inspired to catch up with some of my scrapbooking of stuff that I'm not including in Shutterfly photo books I make.

Cute race pages! I love scrapbooking too, and doing my running pages are always fun. I just do them as part of my chronological books. LOVE the idea of a whole race book.

Love the pages once again! I agree it is so easy. I love to just setup a card table and leave everything out on it so I can just pick it up when I have a few moments! I might just print out some pictures soon and start scraping if I have time!!
