It looks like this is going to be our year for sports and the first game of the year. It's always fun to watch the little ones at this age play soccer, they all follow the ball around the field and only kick if they have a clear shot. On this clear and cool day in April my DGS played his very first game of soccer. He had the biggest grin on his face the whole game. I believe it ended in a tie 3 to 3.
The Christmas paper by Bo Bunny matched the colors in my pictures and with the diamonds it gave it the masculine feel I was looking for in my layout. I find I do not use "traditional" papers for most of the juvenile pages I create therefore I never have papers that fit a theme, I give each one a more timeless classic look.
And when I do not have embellishments that fit the theme, I turn to my computer. In this case I downloaded this free soccer kid image, printed it on a tag then added just a touch of color to match the uniforms. Hmmm, I may find a bit of fiber to add to the tag........
The three circle chipboard pieces are colored with acrylic paint dabbers, the metal things on top are bead caps that I flatted with a pearl in the middle. The title is cut with a Cricut on glossy black paper that I dry embossed before I cut it out. On closer look you will see that the embossing in "soccer" matches, somewhat, the style of the squares in the word "star". The word, star, is a sticker that I have had forever and finally used. Whoo Hoo! I love using old supplies, it makes me feel like I did not waste my money on stuff I NEED. We are not going to talk about the sack of purged supplies I am taking to The Crop this week to give away.
Thank you for stopping to visit.
