OHIO...Buckeye Country

For those of you familiar with Ohio State University, you will understand that the kids jumping off the raft are spelling out OHIO.  It took a lot of picture taking, but I was happy to get one photo where you can make out the letters.  The new Scrappin' Sports & More Swimming paper is the perfect backdrop for these photos.  All I had to do is add a few pieces of cardstock in the red and grey and the layout was complete.  What kind of swimming pictures do you have from last season that still need to be put in your scrapbook?  This double sided paper is sure to get you well on your way :)

All I Really Need to know about Life, I Learned Playing Soccer!

I created a fun mini album about my son playing soccer and while I was trying to decide how to do it, it occurred to me how many life lessons there are in soccer- or any sport, for that matter.  So, I used several different SS&M soccer papers, some SS&M Soccer Rubons, some black chipboard for the pages and some book rings and it came together quickly!

Products Used:
#1349 The Sport is...Soccer Paper
#1248 Soccer Game Paper
#5530 Soccer Balls Cardstock Stickers
#5541 Soccer Cardstock Stickers
#1336 Sports Head On- Wrestling

Hurry Up, Spring!

February is coming to a close.  If that darned ol' groundhog was right then Spring is right around the corner.  Softball, golf and track are all 3 spring sporting activities we enjoy in our household.  Today I'm sharing a layout using the golf double sided paper from  our newest release, The Sport is.

I absolutely love these new papers.  I know you will too.
Thanks for looking.

My Tennis Pro - He's an Ace!

Austin loves all sports and all competitions - if it involves a racket or a ball, he is all over it.  If he isn't already good at it, he is willing to give it his best shot.  Tennis is no exception.  It's not his favorite sport, but he's happy to give you a game!  I love that the new tennis papers can be used for my tennis Ace or my retriever and his favorite toy!  Very versatile!

1 paper...2 layouts

When CHA comes around, there are times I have to surrender some layouts to the show for your viewing pleasure.  But it is sometimes fun to go back and recreate those layouts.  This time around, I got a totally different look using the same products.  Take a look...

Have you ever re-created a layout?  Tell us about it here!

Dreaming of Summer!

It's been really cold here in Maine, but we are starting to feel glimpses of warmpth and seeing the sure sign of spring: MUD!  The thought of being warm in the sun always makes me think of summer!  Last summer, we discovered a fabulous beach that is only a short drive from our house.  It's one of those beaches that is usually filled with just the "locals," so it's never really crowded.  We spent many dreamy days there enjoying the sun, sand and surf.  The kids liked the "surf" part the best and played with their boogie boards for hours just walking out and riding the waves back in with screeches and giggles every single time!

The "Simming" paper in the new "The Sport is..." line was perfect to scrap one of those priceless photos that I snapped at the beach this summer!  And, it worked really well with the Watersports paper from the "Head On Sports" line that I used for the background.

Products Used:
#1335 -Head On Sports: Watersports
#1351 -The Sport is...Swimming

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Things I love....

#1 on the list:  "The Sport Is...".  SS&M's newest paper release!

This line is not limited to just sports either!  Included in the new papers is the Homecoming/Prom double sided paper.  Here, I've used the Prom side of the paper - the writing is elegant and with it being in black and white, well, it will go with any color you'd like to add.  I used Umbrella Stripes and Tiles paper to add pops of color to this Prom layout of my kids from a couple of years ago.

Products used:
#1347 The Sport is Homecoming/Prom
#1164 Cards, Anyone
#1040 Defining Swimming
#1041 Umbrella Stripes and Tiles

AreYou Ready for some Football?

Luke is!  When Luke was 8 years old, he would carry around that football whereever he would go, always ready for someone to say, "wanna play catch?".  He's almost 11 now and doesn't carry it everywhere he goes anymore, but he's always ready to play some FOOTBALL!

Indoor Soccer

I love the new double sided soccer paper from SS&M's The Sport Is line.  I combined it with the great soccer ball cardstock stickers from the Name of the Game line  to create the background for my page.  I finished it off with the soccer ball from the Name of the Game paper.  Love how these all coordinate together :)

Papa's Fishing Buddy

When my parents lived on the lake, my kids LOVED to go fishing with my dad.  I have so many photos from that time, that I am now getting around to scrapping, thanks to Scrappin' Sports & More!  I used the new Fishing/Hunting paper from the new line called "The Sport is..."  The plaid background is from the "Sports Head On" line's Fishing paper.  I cut the bobbers out from the Fishing paper in the "On the Edge Sports" line and added some baker's twine to pull it all together.  Isn't it fantastic how all of the different lines work together?!

Products Used:
#1309- On the Edge Sports: Fishing
#1323- Sports Head On: Fishing
# 1342- The Sport is: Hunting/Fishing
