This is Jordan's final season of college soccer.  It seems like just yesterday that she was 4 years old and tripping over her feet when she ran.  The doctor suggested putting her in soccer where she would have to keep the ball at her feet when she ran.  Who could have guessed that that would be the start of 17 amazing years of soccer. Soccer has been part of our lives for almost 18 years and now we are 2 months away from this chapter in our lives coming to a close.  I can't even imagine that there will be no more games.  No more butterflies in my stomach as she takes the field.  No more private celebrations every time she makes an amazing save.  No more instant prayers when she collides with another player.  I will no longer be the mother of the keeper.  No one envied me that role, but I reveled in it.  I wouldn't have had it any other way. 

Here is a layout from last year's season.  She played amazing and was awarded some great honors.  This year is starting out no different.  Already this preseason, she has been the Defensive Player of the Week for her conference twice.  I can't wait to watch every single game.  I won't miss one minute.

Our Champion

I just love the new soccer paper from Scrappin' Sports.  I love how easy it is to cut out the title so you can place it exactly where you want it on the layout.

I know, it's still way to early to be thinking about the holidays, but really Halloween is just 41 days away! The boys started talking today about costumes and such and it got me thinking. With a little bit of time on my hands today, I decided to start planning ahead --- well, at least a little bit. I went through all my fun Scrappin' Sports & More scraps and pulled out all the colors that reminded me of Halloween. These are the papers I used:

School is Cool - #1358 - 2nd Grade
School is Cool - #1359 - 3rd/4th Grades
Title Sports - #1384 - Wrestling
Title Sports - #1375 - Hockey
Title Sports - #1370 - Cross Country
Down on the Farm - #1291 - Cats
Family & More - #1275 - Cousins
Family & More - #1276 - Niece

Here is what I created with my scraps:

I am 2 cards closer to being ready for the holidays!

She shoots....SCORE!!

After sitting on the sidelines for three years watching Colby play soccer, Elizabeth decided to give it a try. And, she scored her first goal in only her second game! She was so excited (and shocked)! I love her smile as she ran over for her congratulatory hug!

Of course, there's nothing better to scrap this momentous occasion, than Scrappin' Sports & More papers! I used mostly the soccer paper from the "Title Sports" collection, but also a strip of soccer balls from the "The Sport Is...." collection. I was pretty excited to figure out that I could use the SOCCER title but cutting it out, re-arranging the letters and leaving out a C to spell SCORE! Love it!

Best Friends

This is a layout I created for last year's homecoming.  I may not be invited into the dance but at least it's still okay to take pictures before the dance :)  It's amazing how grown up these Freshman girls look when they are not in pony tails playing sports!!  The newest homecoming paper from the Title Sports is a beautiful blue-grey making it a perfect neutral color for all the colorful dresses.

First & Last Day of 6th Grade

It is amazing how much children grow within the course of a school year.  It was never so apparant to me as it was in Lily's 6th grade year.  

The primary paper in my layout is both sides of the Fifth/Sixth Grade paper from the "School Is Cool" line with a splash of the Watersports paper from the " Sports Head On" line (yes, puns were totally intended).

She's Got Mad Skills

My Lily is a girl that sets her mind to doing all the things she loves and doing them well.  This layout is all about what she is loving right now; music, swimming, dance and soccer.  What do I love?  I love that "The Sport Is..." line has theme papers for all of Lily's loves making them perfect for creating a fun layout of my girl.

The ruffles are made from the back sides of the swimming, dance & soccer papers.  The bottle caps are made from SS&M stickers.  Believe it or not, the music note bottle cap is made from the negative part of the Music Super Size Cardstock Sticker.

Winners never quit ...

My son tried wrestling one season through our local high school's youth program and it was a tough season.  Since my son is a bigger kid he was usually paired with more experienced kids - he sure learned about not giving up!

I was thrilled to see SSM's new Title Sports Wrestling paper - I love the tiny words on the paper!  I mixed the wrestling paper with Title Sports Golf and Title Sports Volleyball for a layout I love!

Products used:
Title Sports Wrestling #1384
