Throwback Thursday Challenge

Welcome to the first 2012 Throwback Thursday Challenge!! For today's challenge, we are using a Sports cartridge. If you don't own a Sports cartridge (like me) then use any cartridge & make it into a "Sports" like card OR layout! I have to admit, these sports themed challenges are INDEED a challenge for me!!

For my project, I made this LO of my daughter and her soccer team. This was a great way for me to finally get these pictures in an album..Yea I know, it was taken five years ago...but that's the best thing about these challenges..They force you to get these pictures out your photo boxes!

 I used the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cartridge to cut the little soccer player out. She is cut at 6 inches. For my background, I stamped the word "soccer" using the Sports Sentiments Stamp set. I drew a  grid line on the paper before I stamped the image. I then erased the pencil markings after I was done with the stamping. I think it gave it a cool and unique background. Since I didn't have a sports themed cart, I cut a large circle in white to represent the ball. I added bling around the circle to give it a finished look. I also added bling to the bottom of the girls cleats. I think the layout came out cute but I'm not sure if I was totally happy..but Miss Emma always say, there is no mistakes in paper crafting..:) Sorry for the bad lighting..I didn't have any natural light and the flash was not on my side..
