I'm back, well, sorta

Wow- seems forever since I did a post. I am glad to finally be back in my scrap space doing a little crafting today. the first week of November I was in NYC until this past Tuesday working. I was there for the ING NYC Marathon. I was there with some colleagues and we are all part of the planning team for ING. It was a busy week taking care of all runners and guests. Once I got home, it took until today to catch up on  my sleep. My job requires some long ours when I travel.

There are many things to do during race week not to mention loads of things to do in NYC! One of the things on the schedule was a "Dash for the Finish Line" 5K fun run on Saturday before Marathon Sunday. It was an opportunity to run down some of the busiest streets in NYC as well as run the last part of the actual marathon course finishing at the marathon finish line!

So, myself, and colleagues, Linda and Sheila took a break from the work schedule that morning for a 45 minute run. Though I am not a person that enjoys running all that much, I did find this run very cool. Way to go girls on a great run!

Robin over at My Pink Stamper has a blog hop and challenge going this weekend. The challenge is to do a scrapbook page or photo album project. So here is my scrapbook page of the NYC 5K run.
Yup- I have a couple spots for 2 more photos.  I need to order them from the race so when I get them I can just glue them in place.

I used Lacy Labels for the tabs on the pictures and the All Sports cart for the runners.

The sentiments on the photo tabs are all from MPK Sport-tastic stamp set.

I would love to hear if any of you were in NYC for the marathon last week and if you ran the marathon. 
If you did, Congratulations, it is quite an accomplishment. 
I congratulate my husband, he ran his 5th NYC marathon last weekend. Here we are at the finish line.

I hope to get a few more little things done today...My job is taking me to Phoenix, Arizona tomorrow until Wednesday. So I hope to craft a few things tonight that I can post tomorrow from the hotel.

Enjoy the weekend everyone and hop over to My Pink Stamper for that great blog hop!

Wow…a recent trip and you've already scrapped it! The BG pennant paper is PERFECT. I am impressed. Your title and "runners" die cuts are wonderful. Your LO is motivating me to get some scrapping done!

What a great layout! Congrats to you and your husband on your races.

Quick question...What font did you use for your title? I have been looking for one just like that.

Thanks so much for sharing.

Glad you're back! Just wanted to drop a note and let you know I featured you on Fantabulous Cricut for Scrappin' Saturday:

I've always loved your recipe layouts and thought of you immediately when our theme was books this week.
