A Man For All Seasons


Go HERE for a chance to win a $25 scrappy shopping spree!

I continued to focus on putting together layouts without overthinking.  The one I'm sharing today was inspired by yesterday's "Sunday Sketch" at Studio Calico.  As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew it was a perfect chance to create a two pager - and of course, since I'm working on one of Nicholas's albums, the subject was soccer.

I journaled about the different weather conditions for soccer in Ohio and picked a title to go with that theme - A Man For All Seasons.  The end result was a bright, fun layout with some great soccer pictures.  My favorite is from that wet, foggy spring game with the bare tree in the background.

I love the red shipping tag, the oversized number and the fun paper clip from the Studio Calico September kits.  And, since I was using this layout for my computer challenge entry in the Back To School crop at My Scraps and More, I downloaded his club logo and printed on vellum for a unique, inexpensive embellishment.  (It's a great way to customize your pages that I tend to forget about.)

Today its back to work, so I may not get much scrappy time in.  Maybe tonight?

Hope you have a great Monday!
