Soccer Mom Shares A Story

Wait until you see Michelle's sweet little soccer star!

My girl in her new soccer gear for Newfoundland. We were heading over to my Parent's house for dinner after just getting our girl's new soccer gear. My Brother-In-Law got her signed up for us, since we would be arriving after sign ups. Our girl (Becky) was so excited. She wanted to wear the gear to my Parent's. We got there and the "Ooh's and Ahh's" were given! Then Grandma went to get her camera. Such a long wait for a 4 year old....which it did eventually turn out to be a long wait. Since Grandma's camera batteries were dead! The last picture she is sitting on the soccer ball saying, "Come on already!" But that's how I got to get the pictures of our girl being.....Becky!

For this layout I used only 3 full sheets of patterned paper and some white cardstock. Matted my photos; some separate and others grouped. Placed my two strips on the pages in a continuous line, but flipped the page over to add the Felt Soccer Ball Trim. I wanted to add something to the other side. So, using an old kids plastic stencil misted "my" Soccer Ball. FYI Secret Cover-up:Which ran into each other patches on the ball! BUT my checklist covered it beautifully. Added the other misted Soccer Ball, carefully this time! Added the title with foam  pop dots and a few other little embellies! Complete with her personality showing through!


  1. So adorable!! she is a doll!! LOVE the layout! Love the black soccer line! Love all the soccer elements.. The lettering!! Fantastic!!


  2. She is a cutie and the LO showcases the feminine and tomboy sides well.

  3. Thanks to my cheering section! Deb, you couldn't have planned this showing any better...Her first day of Soccer was yesterday!

  4. This two page spread is awesome! What an adorable little girl! Love the title work, the soccer ball border & the patterned papers. Awesome job!

  5. These pages are fabulous! I still haven't scrapped my grand kid's soccer pages, yet, this will give me some great ideas! Love Penny
