Football Online Crop at the Sisterhood

Just reminding you of an online crop at the Sisterhood of Scrap. We're having fun with FOOTBALL, even though there are many of us who can't stand the game, and know very little about it! LOL Myself included :-)

Here are some of the challenges posted:

RUNNING BACK --  I want to see some type of "running" stitch on your layout. Can be real or faux

GRIDIRON -- For this challenge it is only fitting to use a "grid" of some sort on your playing field!

PIGSKIN -- For this challenge, I want to see a layout using Kraft/brown cardstock as your background paper PLUS you must show some sort of lacing technique.


TACKLE -- Let's see some "piling on" with this challenge. Layer your paper, or layer embellishments.

Check the forum for more challenges, games, and see the awesome prizes that are up for grabs! You have until midnight, Oct. 2nd to upload your projects.

I am challenging myself to creat EIGHT layouts with this kit, plus an assortment of cards. Think I can do it?! Check back over the next couple of weeks to see if I can meet my challenge.
