I'm An Athlete...

Ok, so I'm really NOT an athlete, but I do have two very athletic boys. I also really enjoyed using the new "I'm An Athlete" paper line by SEI that I picked up with my design team credits at Scrappin' {Sports} Stuff.

Although at first, I found some of the patterns a bit too "theme-y" for my taste, I absolutely loved working with this line and also found the paper VERY easy to use.

For my first layout, I cropped a full page of basketball court down to a more manageable half page. Then, I focused on the top for the my photo, title and most of my journaling. Obviously, this layout tells the story of Blake's broken wrist that came as a result of a basketball injury. On this page, I used three different sheets of patterned paper, die cuts, border strips and a foam sticker from the line. I added a mixture of American Crafts alphas I had on hand.

For my second layout, I worked Kevin's formal team photos in with a full page baseball diamond pattern.

This layout was super simple! I just used two sheets of patterned paper, a die cut card for journaling, a foam baseball sticker and Thickers from my stash for the title.
