All Sports Blog Hop - April 7th & 8th


Good morning fabby friends and sportsters!  Welcome to Day 1 of the All Sports Blog Hop hosted by the talented Carla of Racin Crafts!  If you've arrived here from Lluvia then you are in the right spot!  If you just happened upon my blog today, be sure to go back to Carla's Blog as you don't want to miss out on any of the awesome projects and prizes for this hop!

This is a two day blog hop so please come back tomorrow to see all the projects the talented ladies in this hop have made. Make sure that you comment on everyone’s posts and follow everyone to be eligible for the Candy that was donated by our fabulous sponsor Ginger Snap Scraps  make sure you hop over and say hello there too.

First off, I must tell you, I don't have a sporty bone in my body and neither does anyone in my family!  Ok, well, maybe my oldest brother, but that doesn't really count. :p  LOL  My hubby (thank goodness) and I are simply not sports fanatics; however, if there is a live game in Denver, of any type, we'll pretty much go to it just for the beer and food!  ;)  Ok, well, maybe not the beer so much anymore, but hey!  It's fun anyways! :0)  My favorite sport is figure skating with hockey being the next one.  I still can't figure out all the rules of football and I'm certainly sports-challenged!  At this point you're probably asking why I'm in this hop... Just because I'm not into sports doesn't mean I don't like making projects that are sporty!  I have tons of awesome stuff in my stash so I figured this would be the perfect reason to use it! :0)

For my project today I have created a altered notebook for my father-in-law.  Apparently he loves all sports so I thought this would be perfect for him!  I used a notebook that I won as blog candy from the lovely Ellen, of Card Monkey and a kit I received (for FCCB originally) sponsored by Boys Rule.  Friends from Canada, that site is for you!  The owner is awesome and her kits are super generous!  If you have boys or any men in your life, these kits truly do rule!!! :0)

My project is super simple, but I think it's quite fun and perfect for Dad-in-law!  I cut out the star-badge thingy (it's 2:00 AM, brain isn't working) on the Cricut previously and then I used two chipboard dies that were included with the kit.  The paper for the badge thing is from the kit as well and so is the awesome brown twine.  It's like leathery, not fabricy. my adjectives here?  Whew, it's been a reallllllyyyyy lonnnnnnnggggg day! :0) LOL  Forgive me... ;)  The "Dad" letters are from an awesome shiny brown alphabet from the same kit.  I love how puffy they are!  I inked my edges and there you have it!

Thanks so much for bouncin by to see me today!  Now you're gonna roll on over to Laurie!  Don't forget to come back tomorrow!
