4 the Love of the Game

Good Morning Everyone!

So, I'm not sure if I have mentioned that my family and I are die hard baseball fans!! We just love the game.  My husband played as a child, in high school and college.  I played softball as a child and high school.  So now that our kids are at that age and they are starting to play the game.....well, what can I say?  It just brings tingly's all over!!! lol

So this l.o. I made for three different challenges.  The first is at Peachy Keen Stamps.  Our challenge was to create something that INSPIRES us and we have to use our PK stamps.

The second challenge is at Paper Cutz.  In this challenge we could use only the colors red, white and black.

Finally, the third one is at Crafty Creations Challenge #89-Show a Number.  We can make anything we want as long as it has a number showing somewhere.  Easy enough 8)

So what could be more inspiring than my little one (Ryen) playing baseball??? Not much!!!

It was fun working on this lo. Hadn't done one in a while.  Hopefully I can get back to working on my scrapbooks again.

To make the baseballs, I just cut round circles with a circle cutter and used my PK stamps and markers . I'm hoping to get either the Sport Mania or Baseball Cart soon!!

Even at 6, he is just so determined, focused and ready to play hard!!
