Sketch #151

It's that time again for a new sketch over at Twisted Sketches!!

This week, the twist is buttons. Once again, I chose to do a lacrosse LO (I only have about a million to do with hitting just about every home game for both the Mammoth and the Outlaws for the past few seasons...and then not scrapping ANY on the games...) This LO isn't about any specific game however, it has to do with a title that was bestowed on the Pepsi Center a few years back. A sports writer did an article on the best city for lacrosse. They looked at all the cities that had a NLL (indoor) team and rated them on a number of factors. Surprisingly (to the writer at least) Denver came out number one. In fact, the Mammoth fans here in Denver create a huge part of the lacrosse atmosphere and the Pepsi Center was labeled "The Loudest House in the NLL". Well, Mammoth fans have worn that title proudly ever since, making the atmosphere at Mammoth games extremely loud and fun (the team is announced with motorcycles, and classic cars in the past, reving their engines on the field and fire towers shooting off fireworks, and then during the game cowbells, horns, and cheering are the norm) I have been apart of the madness for 6 years now and it has been something I have wanted to document since we got that title :) I am thinking I am going to do a second page with more of the little details (said cowbells, horns, and motorcycles) with detailed journaling. But at least I got this started:

I have saved the parking tickets from every game (it seems like) and decided this would be the perfect LO to use a few of them on!

Thanks for checking out my LO and come on over to play along with this sketch at Twisted Sketches!

Sketch #149

Sorry for the long delay between posts. My home computer is really in need of replacing! It doesn't always want to work when I need it to! And now I see Blogger is not playing nice with the browser we have at work (that I have no power to change...)

So let's hope this post shows up at least sort of normal!!

I have have had little time to scrap as of late. Trying to learn a new position that I have been detailed to with no training has left me totally exhausted! But I did manage to get this weeks sketch done over at Twisted Sketches! The twist was distress, which I decided would look good on a sports LO!


I have to say that I did have fun tearing and inking the cardstock edges and sanding the red piece of Core-dinations cardstock (I do love that stuff and really need to remember to use it more!) I also used my new favorite product, Twinkling H2Os, on the chipboard heart and took sandpaper lightly to it after it dried. To finish it off, I inked up the flowers, added a couple lacrosse elelments, and a journaling spot (which is a Becky Higgins Project Life journaling card that is lined both directions for maximum versatility).

Come check out all the wonderful LOs that the DT came up with and play along!!
