Hey, it's Lynette Daniel saying TGIF! to our Scrappin' Sports & More Bloggers! I'm sharing my brand new layout of St. Bede Academy's own Cross Country star Leo Lopez. Go Bruins! I took some perfect fall photos of Leo and used the glorious green tones in the (Girls' Rule) Golf! papers to match SBA's school colorsI used the backside for the outside border and the right side green & white "stripes" for the flag strips of journaling of his score/rank.  I streaked the Kraft cardstock with green paint and gave it a flow~ but cool masculine grunge look and topped it with a die cut X. Tried to replicate the "X" (cross) throughout the layout by using green staples on the journaling tags. Title is painted (chip) grungeboard. 

Have a great weekend SSnM fans and hope this inspires you to try something new!

This one is visually interesting with the positioning of the "X". Rather than just placing an X you have caught the spirit of a runner with the legs of the X stepping over the photo. The contrast of the dynamic letterform X against the serif lettering is good. And I like the idea of having some empty space to play with. One doesn't have to always "fill the square" to make things work.

It looks great. Love the big X straddling the photo.
