Let's Bowl

I lucked out on making this layout.   I had these 2 pics of my stepson and grandsons bowling that I knew I would scrap but had no idea on how.       Since I'm on the Design Team at "Scrap Much?!"
we get the sketches early to work with and I had not scrapped this one yet, so I decided to use it with these two pictures.   I pulled out some paper for my background and by side border and then the two patterned papers to frame my pictures in.   Next stop was, how to embellish and and title.   I pulled out the drawer for all my sports papers and swap items, hoping that I was remembering right that I had a couple of bowling items.   YIPPEE I even had 4 6x6 pieces of bowling paper,   So back to the drawing board.  I taped all 4 together to make my background paper.   I kept the paper that I had framed the pictures in, because I thought I needed something a little brighter against my background paper and then I saw all the other swap bowling items I had kept for years and never used.   A new border for my layout, stickers and handmade bowling items including the pins and blue ball together and the 3 X deco squares, representing strikes.    I now had everything,  I just pulled the blue from the title sticker and added the blue doily for the circle in the sketch.

I hope you play along with this latest sketch at "Scrap Much"  maybe you will find old things you have been hoarding to use too.    Check out all the details    HERE.

  2. Barbara this is so cool and what wonderful finds in that drawer you have :) Looks like it was a fun adventure for the kids and the accents really play along with that. Love that title work very retro
