65 kms


Hi Bloggers! Just wanted to pop in quickly and share a layout I made for Scrapping Everyday Miracles. They have a fabulous page maps sketch up for their challenge and a twist to use Washi! 

These pictures are of my husband and I last year when we did the Tour de Cariboo. We did a relay with a couple other people. I didn't know how far I could go, so I wanted to start at the beginning and go until I couldn't anymore. I rode 65kms!! I was pretty proud of that accomplishment! I really wanted to do the entire race this year, but since the race is in the beginning of September and I will have just had a baby about a month earlier, I'm thinking that's not such a great idea!! I'll be cheering on Chris from the sidelines with all our boys!

I hid my journaling in the top right hand tag that I tucked under the photo mat.


I used my Cameo for the "65kms", the compass, and the chevron arrows. I wanted quite a big lettering for the 65 and I wanted it to stand up a bit, so I cut the same thing over 4 times and glued them together to get a "chipboard" effect.



I'm playing along with the ladies over at Use Your Stuff too...I really tried to dig into my stash and use some of my older supplies. The main paper is new to me, and the tag and flair and letter stickers and the washi, the wood veneer...Yikes! I'm just realizing how crappy I did at actually using my stash!! lol The banner was cut from an old paper from "the house of three", I did use a couple old stamps and the paper that I used to cut the compass was an older one too...oh, and the Tim Holtz ribbon I've had for a couple years too...okay, so I didn't do great, but I did okay! lol The important thing is that we use up some of our stuff instead of hoarding it all right?! 

I will try to do better next time!! LOL
