Soccer

My beautiful niece, Samantha, is a soccer super star.  She absolutely loves the game.  Because she is constantly growing, she always looks forward to getting new soccer shoes.  Almost every year, she has gone with the pinkest pink soccer shoes we could find. 

In the Fall of 2010, she was assigned to a team whose uniforms were a neon green.  Before she had even seen her jersey, she picked out these PURPLE shoes with neon green accents!  I couldn't believe it!  Of course we had to go to several stores to find the right shoes in her size, but I was just blown away by her final choice.  She was THRILLED with them.

For this layout, I used the cypress paper and page pattern we were assigned.  I matted the shoe shots on neon green paper and used strips of soccer balls and soccer ribbon as accents.

You really found a way to make a bunch of similar pictures of the soccer games into an interesting layout! I love the focus on the shoes and how you made them the focal point with bright card stock. I'll bet Samantha adores this layout, and after all, isn't that what we strive for--to please those we love?!

Your soccer ball paper and ribbon really leap out at me--great choices. Lovely pages!

I usually try to avoid looking at everyone's challenge layouts until I've posted mine...but you certainly have the jump on this one this time, came to see one and got two! The Cypress green grid paper certainly lends the needed green to the sunburned grass of the soccer field. Those purple shoes brighten and give a major "pop" of color to the pages!
