Learning the Game for Stick It Down Double Page Team

We have a great sketch for you this month at Stick It Down, come play along with us!   

My younger son played football for the first time last fall.  He didn't get a great deal of playing time and when he did play it wasn't always easy to get good photos in late afternoon light from across a football field.  So I only had a few photos that were scrapbook worthy and this sketch was perfect for the few I did print.
Digging through my stash I found great sports related papers and embellishments.  I also made a few purchases online from Consumer Crafts to have a selection of patterned papers in appropriate school colors.  All three of my kids will go to the same Middle School and High School, so having multiples is a good plan!
·       The background is Recollections silver cardstock. It is also used for the title .
·       Darice Dark Blue Plaid is the layered cardstock trimmed to 10 1/2" x 12".
·       The football field paper is from a 20 year old 8 1/2" x 11" paper book by Hot Off the Press, a good reason to hang on to your ancient paper stash as it fit perfectly for this theme and sketch!
·       The football words paper is by Essentially Yours Sports designed by Stephanie Carpenter for A2Z. It is trimmed to 5 1/2" x 12". 
·       I had some 10 year old rub-ons by Creative Imaginations that worked amazing well.  Football by Danelle Johnson for Art House. I used them to create the semi-circle design.  I am super pleased that they worked so well and really added to the design and theme,
·       A Deluxe Cuts football die cut finished the sketch embellishments. 
·       The title is Quickutz Abigail as is the sub title. 
·       I completed the layout by journaling on strips.  The strips are edged in Memento Paris Dusk for a finished look. 
I hope that you enjoyed my more masculine interpretation of Stick It Down's sketch for February.  Come play along with us.  We also have a card sketch and single page sketch every month.
