Celebrating The Olympics!

Two Scrapbook Friends is hosting a Summer Olympic Event! Starting on July 28th at 5pm and running until Sunday, August 12th the design team, along with myself and Joanne, will be issuing challenges everyday!!!!

Today is my turn to issue the challenge and I have chosen anything sporty! It doesn't even have to be an Olympic sport! You can make a layout, card or altered project. The choice is yours.

I started by making this awesome 3D football. I downloaded the file from the Silhouette online store and used my Silhouette to cut it out. It is the same size as a football and is going to make a great prop for our sports section in the store. It really amazes me what can be created with paper.


The second thing I created is a single page layout featuring my 'adopted' son, David! These photos were taken last summer. One evening Jason and David were throwing around the football and I took a bunch of pictures.


I have always loved this collection from Jillibean. I cut out the banners and star border and added some matching stickers, using pop dots for dimension.


I cut my title out using the Silhouette and added some brown stitching to accent the word.


I hope you will play along with some or all of the challenges on the Two Scrapbook Friends forum. I can't wait to see what you create with this one.


  1. Gorgeous the banner, the star border and your stitching.

  2. AWESOME football!!! It is ONE of A KIND!

  3. Love your football layout....the stars, yard lines, and the neat stickers! Great inspiration!
