Keep on running !!

What a gorgeous day out there !! Probably the best day of the year so far. I have already been for a run and a cycle !! ( I know I am so good !! ) and this afternoon, my friend is coming to help me with my garden.
Last night my adult class was cancelled and Andrew was out so it was the perfect opportunity to scrap !! I made this page for These Are A Few Of My Favorite thing Challenge Blog. I really like this site. No sketch, just a little imagination. This month the challenge is to scrap your past times.

I am here today to share our latest challenge!! *These are a Few of My Favorite Pastimes*.... Soooooooo FUN!! This can go in soooooo many different directions and that is one of the things that I love about our challenges and our DT...the way you all have different views on our challenges! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I decided to take a picture of my very well travelled ( that's another way of saying very dirty !! ) trainers !! I spend a lot of time running. But in fact, I don't actually like it that much. I just feel this is something that I should do. It is part of my life and weekly routine and strangely enough, I miss it when I don't do it. I don't enjoy running on a treadmill. I like to be outside, smell the air and hear all the sounds. I sometimes take my ipod but most of the time, it is just me and the birdies ! I like to use my running time thinking about stuff, shopping list, things to do.. ( nothing like the legitimacy of wars or anything important, just stuff !! ). Anyway, here is my page.

I was inspired by a French lady, I can't remember her name but I will look it up. She often works with a black background and funky colours. I like the result as it is a little different from what I normally do in terms of colours. I also like the fact that it has a story attached to it. When I first started scrapbooking, the journaling side of it is what attracted me. I like the fact that my grandchildren will be able to read about us, what we did and liked.

I hope you get a chance to enjoy this gorgeous weather. And HAAAAPPPYYYY BIIRRTHHADDAYYY Claire, you know, the anonymous one !!
