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.


Turtle Spring Blog Hop with a fun PUZZLE

Here is my puzzle piece #15

Amazing sponsored must play along with the puzzle pieced sketch in the
Turtle forum.. sure hope you'll share your finished creation with us.

My Spring page .. Your a HOOT is made using Paper House collection Owl - Hoot Collection.
The cutest images on this themed paper.. and I had the cutest photo to go with it.
Lots of layers, stickers and fun addition of punchinella, some brads and washi tape too.

And now for some up close detail shots.

I used the 2nd sheet of matching page to fussy cut and add a popped owl.
I also added stickles to give it sparkle... in this section I also cut out some extra sparkle paper hearts.

What adorable 3D stickers and accents to use for title and fun cluster accent.
The background is gesso mask using one that looked like the bark on a tree. It was perfect.

The upper corner owl was also fussy cut from the 2nd sheet of paper to add more to the page.

When working with paper with such fun but busy images and picture themes it's important
to make sure the actual photo on the page still gets front seat and still pops off the page.
Had I just put it on the blue section of paper it would have been hanging 
in mid air and would have been lost on the page.
In order to do this I made sure the cute photo still had it's own base and many layers 
to give it what it needed... layers of colour, fun accents, some punchinella and brads all
made it come together just perfectly.
