let the game begin

 Our Saturdays are all about soccer at the moment.  With the first half of the season over, it's now going for the League Cup and Knock-out Rounds - very exciting for the boys.
This LO is using the challenge from Colour Combo's Galore #202!  Can you see I love green!
My base paper is Newsprint - by Kaisercraft, then I've layered with some gorgeous textured green cardstock - distressing the edges.
There's lots of stamping and inking with background stamps and I've used some Stuff 2 Scrap Chipboard too!  Here's some close-up's:
 I've used the chipboard circle as a frame to dictionary paper - the chipboard has been sponged with green and white paint - love this effect - I've also added a bit of random stamping.
 Some foam alphabet letters and smaller ones from October Afternoon.  And I love muslin - you will be seeing lots of that!!
Here's the inspiration board - I was a little late in getting this one up - was one of those weeks where other things took over, but I'm glad I finished it in the end!!
The new inspiration board is up now, so I'm off to check it out.
After ongoing stormy weather and rain, the sun is shining.......... so nice!!
Have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting.

You have used the color combo beautifully. Love the catchy title for those pics and your details like the doily peaking out and the buttons.
