Baseball, Football, Soccer Anyone?

Oops!  I created this page last month for MOB Scrapbook Club using the September kit "Game On" and totally forgot to post it on my blog!   

The layout is in the form of a birth announcement for my Goddaughter's baby boy.
I found the saying on the internet and how perfect for the sports theme of the "Game On" Kit.

I cut the star with my Cricut, stamped it with white paint, then layered it with a die cut piece, button and twine from the kit.   The banner is a die cut from the kit that I cut in half and layered under the photo.  
Thanks for stopping by!!!
