Matthew age 4, and ready for his 1st time at bat! His helmet was bigger than he was, and he could barely lift the bat, but he would go out and give it his all every time at bat! These are the good times in our lives. I'd like to say he was a star playe out on the field also, but sadly he would often bring tiny cars with him and play with them during his time in the outfield! It drove me, and the coach crazy. Yes, I know short drive....
This layout uses Scrappin Sports background paper, the glove, and ball is really a note pad, (Frugal Tip) and I'm sure it's not acid free, but I loved it so on the page it went. I'm daring like that..... I had to back the note pad with another sheet of white paper, because it was so thin you could see through it, but I still think it works great.
I hand sewed the tan stitching, not very straight I'm afraid, next time I think I'd better use a ruler, and mark the stiches out a little more evenly. I also used a McGill punch to make the stars, I love this punch, it's so pretty, it's hard to see on here but it has a lace center. The beige stars inside of it are brads, the ribbon underneath it is Offray.
The title was pre-made I think by MME, or perhaps another company, but I added the buttons and cricut die cut.. The bat sticker I think came from Karen Foster, along with the tiny license plate. Hope you enjoy scrapping your own little scrapper! Love Penny
