Rainy Days

Are perfect for scrapping! It took me a while to get moving this morning, but I finally broke out the pretties :)First I said goodbye to my Niece (she is heading back to Tennessee), kissed my Mimi (she is off to her friends Kendall & Olivia's house to stay the night) and sent Matthew off to help Grandpa Joe.

This layout is based on a Becky Fleck sketch http://www.pagemaps.blogspot.com/ She is the queen of sketches :)


I wanted to use soccer balls but make it feel girly too! Thank goodness my sister in law had the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge, as I had not one soccer related embellishment. Still using this line "Petal Pushers" by Bo Bunny, I love the retro, girly feel it has.


"party" was cut with the Opposites Attract cartridge and layered over "soccer" that was cut with Base Camp. A little Stickles and voila, a title that fits!


I am gazing out the window now and I swear I can see the weeds growing! I spent a good portion of the day yesterday weeding and edging, sigh... it's a never ending job :) Off to clean up my scraproom for the next time. Have a great holiday weekend! I'll be delivering babies,or maybe they'll have mercy on a tired OB nurse ;)

Beth, as a "retired" soccer mom, I love this layout. I wish I would have had my cricut when my DD was in soccer! Great job as always.

Love how girly you made this sports-themed page look---the flowers layered on the soccer balls! The orange die-cut background really adds a lot, too!
