CHA - Scrappin' Sports & More - Hockey

As soon as I saw the NEW SSM Title Sports Hockey Paper, I couldn't wait to dig out some photos from an Avalanche Hockey game earlier this year! The backside of the hockey paper has pin stripes - love them!

I kept this layout simple, by cutting out the word 'hockey' and pop dotting it over the top of my photos and accenting it with a hockey puck cardstock sticker and a skull brad.

Baseball Rally Caps

Today is my turn on the SSM blog!

The coaches always tell the boys to have fun while playing baseball so I am always thrilled to catch something behind the scenes like I did here. My son and his teammate had put on their 'rally caps' with the hopes of coming from behind for a win during a tournament in June.

And what made this layout even better is SSM's BRAND NEW "TITLE SPORTS" PAPERS! On this layout I used the Baseball paper (#1367) and Hockey (#1375). The strips of stars are from the backside of the Baseball paper! TOTALLY FUN!
