Family, Friends, and a Soccer Ball

It was National Scrapbook Day.  What does any red blood American do?  They scrapbook of course!  LOL  Well, I did scrapbook but I didn't scrapbook all day.  Actually, I took most of the day to spend with my son and his family...his in-laws...and a soccer ball.  My granddaughter had two games, the last two games, of the season that day.  She was determined that her team would win both games. 

H's team did win both games.  She made 5 goals for the day!  Grandparents could not be any prouder.  The team tied for first in their league.  The only downside was a weird accident that was three players in a sort of pile up and one of the girls broke their arm.  She didn't even cry, just "Mom, I just can't move it."  Fortunately, mom is a nurse and knew right away what was wrong.  Koodos to the young lady with so much courage. 

Here is my layout commemorating the day.  I did take Lynn Murphy's advice to turn a very blurry photo into a watercolor with PSE.  I like how it turned out.  It is the small one with H making her last goal of the day. 

 Paper Collection is from Bo Bunny's Serenity. Design inspired by Valerie Solomon.

The center of the flower is Epiphany Crafts epoxy rounds with Bo Bunny's paper and the cameo piece is from Bo Bunny.  Martha Stewart border punch; Chatterbox rub-ons; ribbon Fancy Pants and American Crafts. 

For the two large flowers I used an OLD rub-on by Basic Grey over this new collection from Bo Bunny.  I loved how it turned out.  Bird...Prima; brown ribbon...Fancy Pants; aqua ribbon...American Crafts; white little shoebox; metal accent...Bo Bunny.

Good day had by night scrapbooking.

Don't forget to post your mini-book...any size or tomorrow midnight Pacific Time to be entered in the drawing for the Bo Bunny Alora collection.  Here's the LINK...good luck. 

Have a Crafty Day!
