Baseball - AFB

It is my turn on the A Flair for Buttons blog today.  Hoping you will stop over to the ETSY shop and check out the best flair there is.  There are so many options to chose from, I am sure there is something for you.  You can add magnets to the back or pins!  Your choice.  

This is from the end of season last year.  It was not a great year but these boys played their hearts out.  They had a great time together and developed friendships that I hope will last throughout their baseball 'career.'  

I used Simple Stories Baseball Mini Collection and left lots of white space.  I use a piece of flair from the Baseball Flair set and one from the At the Fair set.

Sweet - Queen & Co.

I have a fun layout over on the Queen and Company blog today.  
My assignment was to use Washi Tape. 
 I applied strips to scrap cardstock and punched out circles.  
Circles were perfect for my photo. They kinda replicate gumballs.  
The store of the bubble gum machine is in my journaling on the layout below.  

Head over to the Queen & Co. blog HERE.

Hot Dog - Paper Issues

Ad you know, I create a mood board once a month for the Pinspire Me Challenge over at Paper Issues.  I do the blog post with all of the fun DT layouts then sit around and wait for the amazing fan projects!  Playing along enters you into a drawing for a month prize.  

Here is the Pinspire Me Mood Board...  gorgeous isn't it!  
I may have had something in mind when I designed it.  

Here is my take on the board.  I was inspired by the colors along with the obvious!!!  I used Shimelle Little by Little, available in the PI Store for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.

Funny Farm - A Flair for Buttons

Good morning.

These boys are crazy together.  Doesn't help that Randy will buy them CANDY cigarettes.  We were in PA, to meet the boys and pick them up.  In a fun little market, in the center of Philly, they had a candy store with all the candy we used to have when we were kids.   Including these fun candies.  

I really wanted to play with the Bella Blvd Barnyard collection.  They were perfect with the photo and flair that I had selected.  You can get it from Paper Issues for 20% off with Code: Mary-Ann.

So, I am on the A Flair for Buttons Blog today.  Using the perfect flair to help highlight the craziness of these memories.  Go HERE to see all of Shelley's fun flair!
