upward football {a scrapbook layout}

I don't know about where you live, but here in Southwestern Ohio the nights have been getting cooler and there's a crispness to the air. Which means one thing-it's time for football! My beloved Cincinnati Bengals are off to an okay start, going 1-1, but our poor high school team hasn't won a game yet. I'm hoping this Friday's their week to shine.
My older sons played flag football for an organization called Upward for 3 seasons before deciding to focus on lacrosse and basketball. I'm finally getting around to scrapping some of those photos.
Bella Blvd's Making the Team line of paper is perfect for this project!

This is the first of three layouts about the 2011 season of Upward. The other two layouts share information about the boys individual teams (the twins were on the same team). I'll share one of those layouts tomorrow.

I love those Jillibean corrugated alphas-I paired it with a Bella Blvd Making the Team die cut for the perfect title.

I can't seem to stop making banners. It matched the patterned paper so nicely, though.

Ever since I learned to notch my paper to catch the edge of the twine for my banners, they turn out so pretty! :)
Here's a close up of side a:

And side b:

Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be back tomorrow with another football layout.


  1. This is a great sports page! I love the corrugated alphas too, especially combined with the football embellie!

  2. I love the black background and that banner is so cute!

  3. Great layout, I love banners, and yours is so fun and bright :)

  4. I love how the banners match with the patterned paper, that is awesome! The green corrugated letters worked perfectly with the layout too - I just love those letters!

    The fall weather makes me so happy. Especially when football starts - AJ is a huge football fan (I am crazy about baseball, but am not as into football), and while he watches football, I am able to scrapbook!

  5. AWESOME!!! I hoarded this line of papers last year, and it is definitely time to pull it out again! :)

  6. Wonderful photos, what cute kids! Great two-pager!
