Running Memories

I cherish all the races I’ve been a part of. I’ve learned something from each race I’ve run. I proudly display all my medals, but what about the bibs? I’ve had them in a folder for a while but wanted a better way to store them. A few nights ago I scanned each race bib and saved them to my computer.

Being the Shutterfly freak that I am, I started a running memories scrapbook. I have a few more races to finish out my year, so I’m not quite ready to order it. But now I have each bib documented in a scrapbook, along with the pictures from that race. I’m telling myself once it arrives I will toss all the loose bibs, but I still don’t know if I can. Either way, it’s still a great idea to have picture files of them.

Sample pages:


Marathon page.

San Diego 1/2 marathon page

Marine Corps 1/2 marathon page

The race that started it all, a 5k…

New way to scrapbook!

I’ve never had the patience to sit down and scrapbook. If you ask me, it’s to time consuming. I know, it’s family memories, but I just can’t make myself sit down and do it! But Shutterfly has come to my rescue!! I thought just their basic photo books were amazing…but now they have updated their custom path books and they are even more amazing!! Here’s a sneak peak in to a few books I’m working on…

Above is the cover for a family photo book.
Another page from the family book.
 A page documenting “generations”.
I love the yellow background – can you tell??
The shot above is from my best friend’s wedding – I have made her a book and have already ordered it. Loved that picture!
So seriously, if you want an amazing way to document your family pictures and memories…you can’t go wrong with Shutterfly. With the average cost of a 20 page book at $20, you can’t beat it!!
