Sports Layouts

Here are some softball lay-outs I have done I used the team color purple for  the background and backed the photos in black, added some 3D embellishments and softball stickers as well as a black silhouette..the side border is a piece of purple card-stock with some velveteen raised purple polka dots that just went perfectly for this lay-out...
This is another softball layout with the purple team color as the background, I used black and purple borders for the pictures, and another piece of the purple raised velveteen polka dots for a side border...I used the sports mania Cricut cartridge for the silhouettes and some softball stickers to finish it out...there are some purple rhinestones on the letters and hidden journaling tags behind the photos...
I trimmed out the letters in gold, but I think I need to redo them with black...I like to fussy cut some of my images of Rebecca in her uniforms and pop them out the effect is eye-catching...The silhouette of her about to throw down to second base is emphasized by placing her in a corner of the page with the words "GOIN DOWN"....oh I love this page....
I also like to add some things like cartoons that go with my sports themed pages when I can find them they add more to the story...and are very appealing to the page...Rebecca plays catcher and this fit perfectly with the memories of her first season with the pitchers shaking off her signals and refusing to throw the pitches the coaches were telling her to call...


The weather is so beautiful now, it's the beginning of fall and it's fabulous.  I was able to take in a saturday crop and it was so much fun.  I feel refreshed and energized and ready to tackle some more layouts...I spent the day working on a new mini I will post some pictures soon.  I hope everyone has a chance to take in the beauty of the day...it's amazing how a change in the weather makes you feel sooo much better...Be thankful in the little things as well as the big...life is full of countless little blessings...open your eyes and see them....
