Soccer (or Futbol) Anyone?

June Sketch Challenge

This happened with my oldest son and I swore it wouldn't happen again.  But its a year from Nicholas's high school graduation and none of his high school albums are done.  (We won't even talk about the years before high school). 

Now I'm a little better off than I was with Stephen.  Nicholas's junior album is about 80% done and his sophomore album is started.  I went to a crop last night and did a series of 5 soccer layouts.  (Five layouts in one night might be a record for me. 

I started with this sketch from Purple Pumpkin as my inspiration for the first layout.   Here's what I came up with.

These layouts used the soccer title tags I shared a few weeks ago, cool hexagon border, lots of stars, Bo Bunny's Double Dot paper and paper from Authentique's Glory Collection.  I did all 5 two page layouts with 2 sheets of double dot, 2 sheets of the Glory paper, 1 1/2 pages of red cardstock, 1 package of making memories, flags, and 1 sheet of red sports themed paper.  I also had 1 small package of dimensional star stickers and that cool blue washi tape from Freckled Fawn.  Here are the other 4 layouts. 

I like that I stretched my supplies, that the layouts clearly go together and that they are all different.  Now for all those layouts I still have to do.. . . . .
