Another 2-page layout

Well, I've been on a roll lately creating two-page spreads. Here is one I created of Victoria's 13th birthday with her friends. The paper is from the new family line of Scrappin' Sports & More.

This weekend Victoria participated in her first Cross Country meet of the season. It wasn't the regular CYO meet, but one against other middle schools. Victoria came in 6th overall, with a 2-mile time of 13:13. It was her new personal best and she came in 1st for St. Michael's. She was very happy with her time as her goal was to run under 14 minutes. Now she would like to try to get down to 13 even. Here's a picture a her coming down the shoot to the finish line. You can see the muscle in her leg!!

On Sunday, our day was filled with football and soccer. Alex got to play on the High School Field, so that was really cool. The Browns lost in triple overtime to the Bengals :( However, Alex did play well and here is a picture of him making a tackle for a loss of yards. He is playing tight-end this year and I think he likes it better. Tonight at practice they were learning a new pass play which would go to the tight end. He was never allowed to carry the ball before, so I think he is pretty excited.

I videotaped soccer, so no pictures of that game. They didn't play the best either and lost 2-1.

Happy Sunday!!

Today was a good Sunday. It was nice not to be running from one event to the next. Alex had his first Football game of the season, which they won, 16-0. Yes, even though he is on the Browns team, they won a football game. LOL No pictures though as Victoria's soccer scrimmage was at the same time, so I was with her. I actually only took a couple of pictures today and only one really turned out at all. They played well until the last 5 minutes of the game and then gave up 3 goals!! Not sure what happened. But, early in the game they were passing really well. The coach only wants one touch on the ball and then you pass to the open person, so it's a very fast paced game. I think they could have a good team as they learn and improve on this new way to play. Here is the only decent picture I got today.

I was able to complete a layout from Alex's 11 Birthday this weekend too. I actually did another 2-page spread!! It's pretty simple, but I still like how it turned out. Sorry it's so small, the stitching software made it into a really small file and I can't figure out how to make it bigger.

So much to share!!

I almost forgot to post my Prism layout today. I was to busy getting ready for the first day of school!! So, this months theme is texture. We were asked to add texture by using punches, die cuts, tearing, distressing, etc. I choose to use layered punches, a texturizing plate & die cuts. Here is a little glimpse of my project, but to see the entire layout you need to pop on over to the Prism Blog. Speaking of Prism, don't forget about the giveaway. Leave me a message that tells me what you like best about the blog and you could find some wonderful cardstock in the mail!!

Also on the scrappin' note...I finished this layout yesterday of Victoria running in her first 5K. She did Amazing!! There were 524 finishers. Victoria's overall place was 76 and she finished 2nd out of 52 in the Female 14 and under age group. Her time of 22:13 gave her a pace of 7:10 per mile. So's the layout I made using the new lines from Scrappin Sports & More.

Last but not least....the first day of school photos. Yes, same green & white shirts! Next year...Victoria will get to wear "street" clothes. Gasp!! LOL

Scrappin' Sports & More new releases

I realized today that I forgot to post my latest creations using the new Family line and the new Name of the Game line by Scrappin Sports & More. I actually mixed the lines on the soccer layout, using the yellow from the Brother/Sister paper in the Family line. I love it when you can cross over lines!! The other BIG plus for me is that the new Family line uses the same color formula as my favorite cardstock Prism!!!
It may be hard to see on the post, but the left hand picture in the soccer layout, you can actually read Captain on the leg band. Love it when I get good shots!! This was the first season that the coach decided to really choose captains based on what they bring to the game & practice. Victoria was Captain all but the second game of the season. I am so proud of how she conducts herself around her coach and her peers.

Prism Bad to the Bone layout

For my second Inspired By layout for the Prism Blog, I found my inspiration while buying the Kleenex needed as part of the kids school supplies. They have some really cool designs on the boxes these days!! Here is the inspiration piece that I choose.

I loved the color combination and of course the circles & stars. Of course, Prism has wonderful cardstock colors and making the exact match was easy. I didn't plan on using the skulls until I had chosen my pictures for the layout. I mean what could go better with Bad to the Bone as a title. Here is a little sneak peak of the layout.

To see the rest of the layout, just pop on over to the Prism Blog. There is new inspiration waiting for you everyday!!
