Score! A WOW! Layout

Hello, Wow fans! Anne here today with a layout I created using Wow! Embossing Powders. I have been promising my sweet grandson that I would do a layout using some of his football photos and I did exactly that for this project.  I usually prefer making more feminine pieces but I have so many men in my life that I find myself doing almost as many masculine or androgynous pieces as I do feminine ones.

My grandson has been playing league football for a couple of years now and I have decided it would be a cute idea to make a layout for each year that he plays.  Now watch... he'll decide he doesn't want to play anymore! LOL!  These photos are actually from this past season but I have some really cute ones from his first year as well so look for another football layout in the future!

I know that most scrappers don't think of using embossing powders on their layouts but let me tell ya, you really should give them a try.  I used only the basic Opaque Bright White and Primary Ebony on this one (their team colors were black, red and white) but I could have used Cable Car Red and Metallic Silver just as easily. The parts I embossed are the black sideline stripes, the jersey number and year and the chipboard letters for the title.

For all of you sports moms and grandmoms, scrapping all those sports pictures is lots of fun and very rewarding as the kiddos seem to really enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy making them.  I'm waiting on photos from this boy's martial arts classes so I can do a layout with them too.  I really need to make two of each one of these pages; one to frame for his room and the other for me to keep!

Please visit my blog for more photos and information on this layout.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy crafting!
