AND NOW for my hop post where I shared Kids and SPORTS.. especially  SOCCER.
What an amazing SOCCER COLLECT they have at Paper House.

I turned the paper sideways.. and added Sew Easy circular ink roller to the background to start my base.


So using the Soccer Sky paper I added a full size action photo, matted 2 circular photos matted
and then had fun adding some great sticker accents.
When doing sports pages I love to use lots of photos so page 2 of this double starts with the base below.


I started by using the Distressed Grass paper marking off the lower section tall enough
 to hold a  few photos by adding a border band and also Sew Easy roller stitch inking in the corners.
In the upper section I used gesso masking to add some texture to the background.
This space was larger to accommodate more photos and accents.


Here is my finished page above... lots of action shots and even more accents some with 3D look.
I added a few close ups for your viewing.


Without loosing the photos the added sticker accents are a perfect touch.


I have 4 Grand Kids that played soccer at some point of their lives or another.. so 
I have many years of soccer to share with all of them... some still playing today yet.
So Below is another soccer page of another GD at a younger age.. and using the same papers
I got a totally different look.


I used the grass background from 2nd page of double.. then took the background of page 1 
and ripped the side panel. ... and had cut out the soccer ball.
I separated the photos with a punched border that I added white gel pen stitching look accent to.. 
and also added some gel button accents.. and it's hard to see but added 
washi tape to outer edges of the group photo. 

Here are a few photos of the Paper House sports papers available .. they are amazing to use.



Don't they look amazing... and then there is this Sports Pad for those families with 
all kinds of kids playing all kinds of sports.


Up next is:

Don't miss hopping to all the DT blogs.. all amazing and creative inspiring ideas .. 
and all Kid related.. Happy Hopping
and Thanks for stopping by.
