Another Soccer Layout

Still working on this weeks homework for my scrapbooking class I'm taking. This week we're making embellishments for our pages from items we already own. Well I have plenty of things to choose from so that hasn't been a problem. I decided to start with making a soccer page and use some of the chipboard shapes we got with the dazzling die-cuts promotion in the fall. I colored the chipboard star using some rub-on metallic color stuff I've had for ages and used like twice. It really colors the chipboard well I just wish I had it more colors. I then added some chipboard soccer embellishments that I bought somewhere sometime to add to my star and T - this created my focal point embellishment fairly easily. We were meant to add it to paper clip but this didn't work for me. So I left that part out. Then I had to make a tag to match. So using my gazelle I cut a tag out of a cereal box and layered it with cardstock. Then I got the stamps out and added some words and stars before adding the matching smaller star from the dazzling diecuts set. Having now realised I can cut cereal boxes with my gazelle I can make my own chipboard letters so made the rest of the title using this and covered with cardstock also cut with my gazelle so they are a perfect fit. In the end I was really happy with the layout. Funny how sometimes when you start you have no idea where your going but in the end the results are pleasing.
