Take the Field

This morning I learned that one of my layouts is the "Layout of the Day" at My Scraps and More.  I did this soccer layout for the Back to School crop last weekend.  It also falls within my "keeping it simple" philosophy I talked about yesterday.

The design is simple - I cut three different patterned papers (from three different manufacturers)  into large vertical panels and layered them at an angle.  There is a piece from Everyday Eclectic, a piece from Pink Paislee (I think), and a piece from a Creative Memories Fourth of July Addition  (They shouldn't go together, but worked perfectly here.).  A used a strip of green striped washi across the bottom to tie them together.  Most of the embellishments are from a Pebbles package that had been in my stash forever.

I think the banner is what makes the layout.  It was from a package of LYB canvas borders.  But it included blue pennants that just didn't work with my papers.  So I cut the banner into individual pennants and put it back together with the curve and without the blue pennants.  (The blue pennants are safely stored so I can use them another time.)  I used the Everyday Eclectic letter stickers to finish the banner.

Keep it simple and have a great Sunday!
