APU Soccer Camp Layout

Insomnia may not be great for your health, but it sure worked wonders for my scrapbooking. After a month-long scrapbooking drought, I managed to put together the base of this layout last night between midnight and 1 am! I pulled out some papers from a box my neighbor donated to me when she moved in June (so I have no idea what they are called or who manufactured them), and paired them with some trusty CTMH cardstock. A few die-cuts from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge finished off the job. Hope you like my first foray into scrapbooking for a while.

Floral & Stripe paper (from my mystery box)
Pacific, Sky, Pear Topiary, Honey & White Daisy cardstock
Pear & Sky ink
Pacifica marker
Cricut Artbooking cartridge: soccer ball, title, score banner, sunbursts
Pattern: Stick It Down 8-26-14 sketch
Challenges: 1~2~3 Get Scrappy August challenge board (I chose the stars, grass, stripes row); Stampin' Royalty picture inspiration (I loved the blues, green, and touches of yellow, plus I used the starburst idea);  Clear It Out Challenges favorite color combo (mine is blue & green with a touch of yellow)

Very nice!! It's layed out so perfect!! Saw you in my blog roll. :) Your insomnia comment caught my eye. LOL! Always fun to get papers and such from people just because. You used them nicely!!

Cheryl, this is so cute. I had to pin this one just in case I sign our little guy up for soccer, this fall. By the way, I used your stars sketch that I made a Timberline layout for as a workshop layout last weekend with a friend. We tweaked it a little and she was totally in love with it when we were finished. It was a great way to use up left over scraps and even highlight some of our favorite patterns of paper, too. Have a Happy Labor Day!
