Fall Football Saturdays

>> Saturday, October 22, 2011

Today was our last football game of the season. We've spent the last 6 or so Saturdays at the football field watching my son play tackle football and my daughter cheer for flag football. I thought it would be fun to celebrate and honor the season with a quick layout.

To us fall = football. I love it! And the Lily Bee Harvest Market collection is the perfect fall collection!

I started my design around wanting to use the flags from the cardstock stickers on my layout to separate the two pictures. I placed my pictures on a smaller piece of paper and then layered the flags back and forth. Then I added a couple small strips of paper over the seam of the two columns and sewed some swervey (yes that's a word...the dictionary is wrong!) lines to tie them together.

Then I layered some of the index journaling cards, some cardstock stickers and some papers from the tiny tablet behind my pictures before adhering it to the page.

Then I sewed some more swervey (see there's that word again!) lines around the outside of the layout.

I punched out 3 maple leaves to use as a base for my title and my journaling. And hand cut out a banner to offset the light color of the word "Saturdays"

I hope you've all been enjoying this fabulous fall season as much as we have!!
