Today is Wednesday and usually I have a scrapbook class on the last Wednesday of the month.  With the lack of internet last week I didn’t get out a class reminder and once I got home and looked at my calendar I decided it would be best not to have the class today.  So instead I am posting a scrapbook layout today with supplies and measurements so you can create a similar version for yourself at home.

These are pictures that I took in March when it was Spring break for the colleges.  Kyle was on spring break and so was my nephew Nicholas.  The boys hung out for a few days and one afternoon decided to throw the football in the backyard.  Tyler joined them.

I was glad to see them outside playing instead of inside on the computer.  But the fun time didn’t last long.  Nicholas threw the football and Tyler and Kyle were trying to catch it.  Tyler got in front and went for the ball which hit the end of his little finger at just the wrong angle.  See the last picture where Tyler is grabbing his hand.  That was it for the football that day.  Since his finger didn’t improve I ended up taking him to the doctor the next day and then they sent us to xrays.  Yep the result was a broken finger!

Now for some information about this layout.  I used a football from an old retired stamp set but you could use another ball or another image for whatever you need.

The base of the layout is Night of Navy 12″ x 12″.  Both backgrounds are stamped with the football in Night of Navy ink.  I used strips of the Travel Journal Designer Series paper from the Summer Mini catalog – 1″ and 1/2″ strips of different patterns and then I trimmed them to different lengths so they could be staggered.

The journaling was typed on the computer and printed on Whisper White card stock.  I stamped a football in Sahara Sand ink where the word “football” was in the journaling.  The title is cut from Sahara Sand card stock using the Big Shot and the GoGo Boots Alphabet dies.

I also cut arrows and brackets using the Big Shot – the brackets are from the Hearts & Brackets die and the curvy arrows are from the Curves Ahead Sizzlit die.  The large straight arrow if from the My Way punch.  The footballs are stamped on Whisper White card stock with Night of Navy ink and cut out.

I put all the footballs and the brackets on Stampin’ Dimensionals to lift them off the page.  “Game On” is from the Sporting stamp set and punched out with the 1-1/4″ square punch.  A piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock was punched with the 1-3/8″ square punch to create a layer.  This is also on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My pictures are 3″ wide and 4-1/2″ tall on the left page and 3″ wide and 5″ tall on the right page.  I put a Pumpkin Pie mat on the one where Tyler is holding his finger after the ball hit him.  I just never got a picture of his finger in the custom made splint that he had.

I hope you like the page – have fun making your own.  Thanks for stopping by today!
