Hey Pebbles friends, Becki here. I’m so excited to share this layout with you that I created with the new America the Beautiful collection. Red, white, and blue is one of my favorite color combinations. Not only does it make me think of July 4th, Memorial Day, and Flag Day. It makes me think of baseball.
My little guy (okay, he’s not really little anymore, he’s 14) played in little league for 8 years. I created a layout documenting his 8 years of little league and what his favorite part about it was. (It wasn’t easy getting that much information from a 14 year old boy!)
I started by collecting a few things from the America the Beautiful collection. I grabbed the washi strips, the glitter star stickers, Thickers, and a few strips of patterned paper that I had trimmed to 1/2 inch. Some of those 1/2 inch strips are branding strips.
I put my title on the layout first, added the strips of patterned paper/washi tape above and below the title.
This layout has minimal embellishment. I only added a few star stickers, 3 die cuts, and some ink splatters.
The journaling on this project reads:
For eight years, 5 nights a week (sometimes a little less) we were a little league family. Cole started playing baseball when he was just a little guy and played until he was thirteen. We started running him to practices in March and starting running to practices and games April through June. Cole’s favorite thing about little league was pitching and learning how to pitch well. I think he also loved the time he got to spend with his dad when his dad was helping coach and at practices. 2016 is the first year in many years that we’re not a little league family.
I love how this project turned out. How do you document your sports memories? I’d love to see what you create!
