Now onto my project, I created this two page layout using the Sports Mania cartridge to scrapbook some pictures of my son during the "All Stars" tournament for baseball.
The baseball background is cut at 12.0 inches, the title at 2.3 inches and the baseball at 2.0 inches.
There are several photo mats, one of which I will be using for the newspaper article about the team which specifically mentioned my son. (Proud mommy!)
I embellished the layout with some buttons, twine and my white gel pen.
I used foam pop dots for the title in order to add some dimension to it.  The little circles were just punched out with a regular hole punch and embellished with my white gel pen.
Here is the entire line-up for Day 1:
