Basketball Layout - Paper House Productions

Have you noticed lately that there are two different realms of scrapbooking going on?  One is very artistic based and one is very theme based.  I am going to be honest with you - I love to do both.  Sometimes I just want to scrap a pretty picture and play with techniques and whatever moves me.  But other times I really want to stick with the topic and theme.  Today is a theme day!  My oldest son lives and breathes basketball, so getting him to pose before his last game was an absolute must!
Timmy had such a fun season and improved soooo much from last year.  He was on a team with a couple other guys his age and talent set really complemented one another.  To create this layout I used all pieces from Paper House Productions (except for the wood stars).

-Add a 4 inch strip of white paper to the blue patterned paper
-Cut out an 8 inch circle from the basketball paper and adhere that to the left side of the paper - overlapping the outside edge a little.  
-Add a white cardstock banner to the top right corner 
-Add your pictures so that they overlap  both the basketball and the blue paper.
-Choose three foil player die cuts and put them on in a diagonal route...from bottom left up to the banner
-Attach the Cardstock border sticker to the top of your banner and the 3D Basketball sticker just below it.
-Pick out an appropriate phrase from the foil die cuts...I went with slam dunk.  Attach that to the bottom corner between the picture and the star.
- Finish it off by adding journaling, numbers for the year (or perhaps a team name), and some stars

I created a sketch to go along with the layout. I made it more generalized from the basketball theme.

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Paper House Productions
Stickers: Paper House Productions
Cardstock: American Crafts
Wood: Studio Calico
