First NFL Game

Today my post is featuring my son Alex's first NFL football game. He was lucky enough to get to see his Dallas Cowboys beat the Carolina Panthers earlier this year. It was an amazing day for both Alex and Mark. I found this sketch posted on Pinterest and knew it would be perfect for this layout.


Here is the layout I came up with using the sketch.


The Cowboys paper was a custom paper from Scrappin' Sports & More that I had made a couple of years ago and was just waiting for the perfect layout to use it on.

Alex Football Picture

When I got Alex's 8th grade professional football picture, I couldn't believe how old and muscular he looked! When did my little boy grow up into a young man!! I layered lots of Scrappin' Sports & More papers & stickers to create this bright fun layout. I love that the focus is still Alex and the mountains in the background.

Manchester United Museum Tour = AWESOME

Besides seeing our family, which is always a wonderful thing, the best part of our trip to England was visiting Old Trafford.  We became official fans so we could buy tickets to a game while we were there and decided to do the museum tour too.  It was Awesome!!  They take you into the locker rooms,  through the player tunnel and you even get to sit where Sir Alex Ferguson sits.  If you get the chance and are soccer fans, I would highly recommend the tour. 

When I saw this sketch from Let's Scrap, I knew it would be perfect for doing a collage of photos from our tour.  Here is the sketch from Let's Scrap for 10-31-12 :) 

Here is my take on the sketch.

Kick - Madalyn Soccer Layout

I know I have said it before but I really love how easy it is to mix and match all of the Scrappin' Sports & More papers. On this layout I used 6 different papers and 1 set of cardstock stickers. I love the look of the chevron with the stars and the colors were perfectly matched to Madalyn's soccer colors.

I have done so many soccer layouts over the past 12 years and I love how Scrappin' Sports & More papers keeps them looking fresh and new!

Here is what I came up with...
