CQC #117 Soccer Scrapbook layout!

Hi all! We are having a fun, EASY challenge over at colourQ this week! Just in case you are having a hangover from too much sugar, noise, busyness; like yours truly, this will help you wet your feet back into crafting! Here's the palette:

Here's my pages, I still had a few pics that needed scrapping from when Ian played soccer. Black and white just screamed "soccer ball" at me. ;)
So, the other color of my choice was obviously GREEN! All that grass in the pics, what other way could I possibly go? I started out by cutting out the large soccer balls from a piece of soccer DP I had. I put those in the outer two lower corners of the layout. I matted my photos in black and arranged. For the title, I used some dotted DSP (old SU! Night and Day pack from a few years back). I cut the title letters on my Cricut and stamped them with a black soccer ball stamp. I accessorized with a few coordinating stickers, and a plain journaling block.

This "xtra pix pocket" is a bit of a departure from normal, but something I have done before... This was the last of Ian's soccer pics, so I wanted to include all the pics, not just the ones I had room to scrap. I cut a slit (actually more of a very skinny rectangle) into the paper. On the back side of the page, below the hole I'd cut, I created a pocket with scrap paper from the layout and foam tape. On the front of the page I added the "xtra pix pocket" label and a few stickers to hide the edges. Here's some photos, so you can see.

back of page, this is adhered with
foam tape so the pocket is deep enough
to hold all the pictures.
Well, that is it for me today! Trying to get the tree down and the house cleaned up! Oy, is it ever a MESS! Be back soon! :)

big hugs, Noelle :)
