I was super excited this weekend to finally see my Fall mini for this project in the latest Create: Mini Album Idea book from Northridge Publishing! Yay! I was dying to see what pages were selected and it was so fun to see some scrappy friends and my dog in a magazine :)
If by any chance you found us via that article, welcome! Me and a few super crafty girls I know are doing this project all year. You can jump in at any time. Just leave a comment to let us know what you are up to. I would love to show off some other people's work here on the blog. You can also come chat with us at www.thecreativesoup.com - a scrapbook challenge forum. In fact, we have a Re-Opening Gala kicking off today! Lots of games and fun and a few prizes of course.
Okay on to more fabulous pages by Mara...
**All notes are from Mara, giving you a bit of detail about her book**
ere is a mini page made out of an Under Armor racing hat I bought to keep me warm as I ran in the winter. It documents my trails and set backs as I got ready to run my first 5k.
This is made from the shopping bag from the store I bought my real running shoes. I wanted to keep it nice and simple so I could focus on the journaling and documenting my experience.
RAD is the rail arts district here in Atlanta and Tess' husband is one of the artists that participated in the tour. Each artist had a business card and as we walked around I gathered them all and then stapled them together to make a "page".
The back features one of the most talented artists Ive ever had the pleasure of meeting. The photo is a piece of hers.
Just a quick little insert made from the studio calico label they close the bag with.
My new hairdresser sent me this thank you card for choosing their salon and I thought it be the perfect thing to document my new hair cut and color.
And my first ever race number! I finished a 5K and had bought the post card one day to cheer myself up. It worked perfectly as a way to add photos and journaling to my race # which was made out of this weird material not really conducive to journaling on it and it was too flimsy to be a page on its own. I even left the safety pins in there!
