In honor of the season, I thought I'd share a couple of soccer layouts today. First up is my oldest using Jillibean Soup's NEW Game Day Chili papers. Bright colors on kraft with lots of fun sports icons.
All Star Soccer Goalie
And next I have a double-page layout about my youngest's first season, which wasn't quite so all star. He's just four and isn't really that interested in the game. He plays for a few minutes, kicks the ball a couple of times, and then he feels like he did his job and should be allowed to sit the bench and eat his snack. After a little
threatening encouraging, he goes back out on the field and picks grass, runs around with his arms inside his shirt, and takes a seat on the circle. Good times! When I asked him why he doesn't do better in soccer, here's what he said, "Mom, you know that's a lot of running to never get the ball, right? Those other two boys always get the ball, and they are doing a good job." Well, can't argue with that logic, can ya?
This page was created with the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue that came in my February ScrapRoom Flavors of the Month kit. Since that line wasn't really intended for a sports layout, I had to get creative with the embellishing. I cut triangles for the title banner and used my Cricut to cut a couple of soccer balls.
These pictures still crack me up. Did you see the one where his dad has had enough and is carrying hime off the field like a sack? Oh wait, and what about the one where he made himself into a worm by crawling into the bag for my chair? Four-year-olds . . . they are fun!
Anyhoo, this layout was actually my Recipe Card layout for The ScrapRoom. We create step-by-step instructions for each of the six kits offered each month, and these recipes are free to subscribing members. Such a great resource if you are new to scrapping or if you don't have a lot of time to design a page.
Well, thanks for stopping by today! And thanks especially for all of your sweet comments. Totally makes my day when you leave me a little love. Have a great weekend!
