Vintage paper?!

It's that time of month where there's a new challenge going on over at Sarah's's another sketch this month, this time by DT newbie Tracie, and it's a fab one open to lots of interpretation! Be sure to follow the link for all the details and be in with a chance to nab yourself a £20 e-voucher for the shop and plenty of inspiration from the other girls!

Here's my take on Tracies' sketch:

See the lovely woodgrain backing paper's from a Cosmo Cricket's "Wanted" range - released in 2006! How's that for retro scrapping?! Positively vintage me thinks!

The square print is an Instagram shot from my mobile, and I'm finding them the perfect size for A4 layouts. For some tips on how to print them yourself at home, see my latest post on the Sarah's card blog here. I'm sure I'll blog the layouts themselves soon back here too though!

Thanks for the support re C25K!! I seem to be stuck on week 4 though!! I've been struggling with it for 2 weeks - although I completed it on the first run (must have been the novelty factor) I've struggled to do it all since, having to take a minute walk in the last five minute running section every time. We'd changed running location to this gorgeous lake:
however, in a bid to break this cycle I've got myself in we're going back to the old sports field where I last had "success" on our next run to see if that will hjelp make a change.

Have discovered that I absolutely LOVE running in the rain - to the point where if the sun is out of an afternoon (rare thing that though mind!!), I find myself willing it away in time for my run. Here is my secret weapon against the rain: my running hat! As long as the rain isn't in my eyes and wispy bits of fringe I'm fine, and the hat gives me that protection. I love you, running hat!

It was pretty bad on the last run though, despite the hat! Even the geese and ducks were a bit weary of taking a dip and were flocking on the grass at the side of the lake. Thank god, they didn't chase me!! Not that I'd give them much of a race at the snail-like speed I jog at mind!

Lot's of people are taking the C25k plunge - how's it going?!
