If you came from Kathy's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to start at the beginning with Tara.  Now on to my project, I created this single page 12x12 layout using the All Sports stamp set:
I used the Baseball cartridge to cut the baseball and the title which were adhered to solid card stock to help break up the busy background pattern.
I added some stars and buttons from my stash of embellishments.  Some Cranberry Trendy Twine was used to accent the buttons, photo mat, banner and tag.
The banner was created by cutting flags by hand and adding some polka dotted washi along the top. All of the sentiments are from the new All Sports stamp set and were perfect for my layout.
Next on the line up is the amazing Georgiana.  Be sure to hop with us tomorrow too.  Tara is giving away one stamp set each day of the blog hop and Too Cute By Jessica is giving away a $25 gift certificate to her store.  Winners will be picked from a different blog each day so the more you comment the more chances you have to win!  I would love for you to become a follower of my blog too!

Stamps are available in the Craftin Desert Diva's shop now.  Please join us on Facebook at the Craftin Desert Diva's Gallery we would love for you to share your projects using the Craftin Desert Diva's stamps.
