Hi Bloggers! I wanted to share a layout I made the other day for the challenge over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles. They want us to make a layout about something New in our lives. I thought it would be a great opportunity to scrap about Caleb's new sport! It's the first time he's been in an organized sport and he is having so much fun! I think he's been so used to being toted along to Ethan's soccer, and lacrosse and hockey, that he's pretty excited that it's his turn to be the one to play! Ethan however, doesn't seem to do too well at just watching! lol
The twist this month is to use something that's at least a year old (the older the better) and something that's new to you in 2013. For my old stash supplies I used Crate Paper's Toy Box collection which came out in 2011. The green grid paper is also quite old, although I'm not sure who made it or how old it is :) The journaling tag is from Basic Grey's Life of the Party line, which I believe is from 2011 too. The teeny "got skills" rub on is a crate paper one too, and it's really old...I got it when I first got really into scrapbooking!
I used a few new things too...the fringe layer was cut using my new fringe scissors...I've been looking for those things EVERYWHERE! The "SOCCER" stamped title was stamped using my new Tim Holtz alphabet stamp. I've been eyeing it up for some time, but was resisting it, because I don't tend to use alphabet stamps very often. I just really liked this one! So I bought it, resolving to actually use it...and I did! Yay me!! The teeny confetti circles were made using a new border punch too.
I used the holes that it makes when it punches the border as confetti. I love that this punch is pretty versatile...and I think I will be using this one a lot more :)
As I was taking these pictures, I realized that the little bottle cap thingy was kind of covering up the "s" in "got skills" so it kinda looks like "got kills?" lol
I did move it over a little bit for this picture, but I can see I will need to move it a bit more...lol
I used a sketch from the Paper Bakery for this layout :)
Well, I should probably get going and get on with my daily chores! We're heading to our cabin for the weekend and I've got a lot of getting ready to do! Do you have any plans for the long weekend??
