Here is my latest layout for the Scrap the Boys August Challenge. The challenge was to make a layout inspired by the picture at right. 

I was inspired by the red and blue stripes, and the large circle. While I was going to use striped paper, it turned out that I didn’t have any, but I found these papers in my stash instead. They’re from an old TLC Runway Playhouse Collection kit. The circle, blue ribbon and the number stickers are too. I also found the star diecut in my stash. From memory it is one of the first scrapbooking set of diecuts I ever purchased. I don’t know who made them though as the packaging is long since gone. I added the dots around the edge with my Sakura stardust pen. The small letter stickers are cherry red mini alpha stickers by Kaisercraft.

While this is a simple layout, loosely based on sketch number 1 by Donna Coughlin that I found on Love of Sketches, I love how it turned out. I think that the simplicity goes well with the action shots and team photo.

Well that’s it for now. Till next time, happy days.

Wow, haven't the kids grown in the past couple of years? And your right, the action shots would get lost in a busier Lo - this is great. xx
