Bears go to the SuperBowl LO

Hello Again, I have been busy with a few Challenges from the groups I run on the Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends NING site. For the Sports Mania Group the challenge was of course a project that was sport related and it had to have the color Orange. I know the color Orange is not the most popular color out there but it so happens that it's the Chicago Bears color ( well one of them anyway) and our Local schools colors... and not only that but it's October and it's a Halloween color. I have been meaning to get this LO done for FOREVER... I mean it was a few years ago and I had bought some really cute stuff for it ... I even saved the cupcake toppers for my LO! LOL....
Of course There are no pictures of me with Griffin on his first ever Super Bowl and the bears were playing which made it even more special.. but I did get a few with Daddy that day so I am happy.

For this LO I had 3 pictures that I wanted to use. I prefer to make double LO's so that when I put them in a book I have matching pages... I set about making the mats for the pictures and then deciding on how I was going to use the Patterned Papers I had , Ultimately I decided to only use the Football Phrases paper and the Football textured paper for the LO's along with the solid Paper. The rest just kinda worked there way to where they are ... free form .

Don't you just love the texture of this Paper! It is just like a football! I saw it at Hobby Lobby and had to get it... for 2.00 a sheet.

The die cut chipboard Letters are covered with Grass paper and some football paper. I made a book marker for Brad then decided I liked it to much and wanted to use it for my LO... Guess I should make him a new one!
Thanks for Looking !
