The sketch is from Sassy Lil Sketches but this week there was a twist! You had to go to this website, http://www.csnstores.com/ and find something that inspired you, and do your layout around that item. Well I looked at all the wall hangings, some living rooms, even some bathroom themes and decided to try rugs. I darned near squealed with delight when I saw this rug:
I used the rug (in case you wonder, its $39!) as my inspiration for what I think is a NEAT baseball layout! And I am now entered into a drawing to win a $70 gift certificate to CSN Stores which would be neat....they have TONS of stuff!
Having two boys who have played baseball consecutively for the past 15 years, I have no shortage of baseball pictures and am always looking for unique ways to do a layout. When I saw the circles on the sketch then found the baseball rug, the rest just fell into place! I wasn't sure what I had in the way of red or navy patterned papers which I thought would be a problem (our colors are Red, White & Blue) until I started to dig through some kits that had piled up from the various kit clubs I subscribed to last year. I'm pretty sure these papers were from a Memory Works kit probably around this time last year. The papers are all Scenic Route Liberty collection and they worked PERFECT with this layout! And now that I remember that I have them, there is still PLENTY in the kit left over to do 4th of July pictures (from last year AND this coming year!) I'm off tomorrow and heat is supposed to be killer again, so more scrappy things to come!
