MCT Scrapping the Little Things: Smashin' 2012

by Veronica

I'm not sure if I'm "Smashing" the right way, but I'm having fun! (and I don't think there is a right or wrong way anyway)

Today's Smash layout is the 'title page' to my 2012 race 'section' in my new Smash book. Sometimes, separating a scrapbook into categories is just what it needs to flow nicely and not let the 'reader' get lost.

The quote on the left has been a favorite of mine since the day I saw it. When I'm having a rough run, I remind myself that today - I CAN do this. During our half-marathon this last July in Chicago, a spectator was holding a sign with those words and yelling out, "Maybe tomorrow! But NOT TODAY!" She really motivated the two friends I was running with and myself to keep on keepin' on.

MCT Products Used
Sports Sentiments ("Dedication+Motivation..." & "I {heart}")
You Are Here (little runner)
Things I Love ("DETAILS")
Stitched 4 x 6 Journal Dies ("2012")

I'm still getting used to using my handwriting - I'm not a big fan of it. But I know that it adds a personal touch to my pages. And since I'm "Smashing", I keep telling myself that it's not supposed to look perfectly put-together.

If you love the motivational quote on the left page as much as I do, feel free to download this FREE printable I created for my page and use it as you wish. I hope that it can motivate you to keep striving for your own goals!

Thanks for stopping by today! You can head over to Emma's blog to see what some of the other designers have created for today's Scrapping the Little Things.

I hope you were inspired!
