When life is hard...
This is another one of Matthew's football layouts.  He is #62, and is clearly seen where the arrow is pointing. (for the smaller arrow I used a arrow punch)  I used his position in the photo to inspire me for the title which reads: "Matthew, when life is hard... Push back!"

His football team has remained undefeated for the last 2 years. It has been so much fun going to his games. I have had everything on this layout for YEARS, except for the photo which was taken the first year he played.

Frugal Scrapbooking Tip:
The two plastic football player's on the bottom of this page are actually cupcake toppers.  I just cut the bottom portion off of them, and glued them down to the page. The frame for this photo was added with the kodak picture maker.

The small tags that say "push back" were from a punch out alphabet set. The "tackle, 1st down, offense" words were cut from a K & Co. sheet of pattern paper.
Thanks for looking, Love Penny
Pin It!
