Read, Set, Throw

Getting in gear for Father's Day, we showcased a "masculine" theme this week at 

I took these photos on our last trip to the lake.  My boys love tossing the football wherever 
they go and the lake is no exception.  I just kept waiting for it to go into the water!  
My middle son, Zach, dabbles at quarterback and here he was practicing his throw.

For the layout I used a combination of "Take Note" and "Boys Only" Collections.  
My absolute favorite Doodlebug Alpha Stickers?  You see them here: Teensy Type & Party Banner!

I used a 2" square punch to the different papers and used them as a border. 

Punch-outs from "Boys Only" made this layout quick and easy to put together!  

And I'm not sure how far I'll get, but I was pretty excited to learn that I made it as
a finalist in the May Arts Ribbonista Design Team search :)  

Aside from loving May Arts' ribbon, I'd like the opportunity to push myself to find new
and unusual ways to use ribbons and trims.  This is my first non-paper design team that I've tried
out for and I'm really excited to be considered :)  The team will be announced July 29th.
Here is the link in case you'd like to see all who made it as finalists!

Hope you all have a happy weekend!
