Hello stamping friends!!
I hope you all are having a great week so far. I can't believe the first week of school is almost done! We have a busy weekend planned with some fun activities with friends. So not much relaxing will be happening this weekend. But it's all good.
Today is a new Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge. I'm your hostess this week and my challenge is:
Let's see your creation using some sort of Outdoor Fun activity.
You don't have to use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp, but if you do, you will be entered into a 2nd drawing for a free WnW digital stamp.
For my project, I decided to create another scrapbook page (figure I have enough cards and I'm really behind in scrapbooking)...
I actually made this over the summer, but held onto it for this challenge. This is a layout about our Father's Day trip to the Baseball park!! We have minor league baseball here in Jacksonville. It's much more low-key than a Major League game, but we still had a great time.

The paper is an old Stampin' Up set. I thought the stripes reminded me of a baseball uniform.
A close up of the stamped image...
I used Home Run embossed in black, watercolored with Twinkling H2Os, cut out, and attached with dimensionals.
The sun was cut using a free Silhouette image, cut out in cardstock, then I stitched some embossing thread along the edges. I'll be honest that it was a total fluke that each ray of the sun had the stitching in the same places!! I was sure that I would end up with some odd stitch, but it all worked out!
I created a tag-like journaling on the computer. It lists the purchases of the day resembling one of the those credit card commercials..."tickets, $x, parking $x, Popcorn, $x, Father's Day at the park...Priceless..."
The title was first cut with the silhouette. then I tacked them to a scrap piece of cardstock and ran it through my Fiscars Crimper. I removed the title from the cardstock and attached it to the layout using dimensionals.
I really like how this turned out!! It was a really great day at the ballpark, too!!
Now it's your turn. Let's see your Outdoor Fun Projects!! The challenge is open for 2 weeks.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Stamping!
