May Design Team Challenge - Flag Football

I have been wanting to figure out a way to make a mosaic using this Reminisce "real sports" football leather textured paper that I recently picked up at a favorite store in Michigan.  As soon as I saw the sketch for the challenge, I knew it was time to make it happen!

I took inspiration from a real football, using a crop-a-dile to apply brown eyelets and "laces" through them.  I used this to create a realistic football embellishment on my left page. 

The quote on the right side of the page is a Tagline from SnapNCrop, and the football squares are cornerstones.  It says "huddle up and call the play.  We've practiced hard for this game day.  Dressed in gear we're looking tough.  Team prides at stake, we've got the stuff!"

The football field paper is from the Paper Studio.

Love the football! The cornerstones and the field paper are perfect partners for your page too.

Wow - what a great job - love the 4 little footballs and the laced panel was just genius!

I also think your football embellishment is great! Your page is very balanced and the colors work really well.

I'm going to try to duplicate this one--it is sooo outstanding! My 9-year old grandson plays flag football, and he would love it. I hope I can figure out how to do the eyelets. Love it, love it, love it!

I too, love the football embellishment you made to fit the space, and the football field paper is perfect! Your colors all work well on the Sunflower grid paper. Nice capture of the plays on the field too!

I love your laced football detail Deborah. The CornerStones and the Paper Studio "field" paper are perfect - and I am also partial to the poem. ;)
