Soccer Layout using Sketch~N~Scrap Challenge #36 & Blog Candy Winner

Happy Day!  I have visited and have a winner from Saturday's Blog Hop,  Mary Jaminski!  Congrats!  Please send me an email with an address to send your prize!

For my post today here is a Sketch~n~scrap challenge layout:

When I see a new sketch challenge, I try to print out a picture of the sketch and tape it to the wall in front of my work space.  I have several taped there currently.  I then go through my current album that is organized according to the Creative Memories Power Layout method and using CM Power layout guides.  I will blog about this method of album organization later, but suffice to say I can flip through and find layouts that will work with say the 3 picture sketch provided by Sketch~N~Scrap.  I found several but this is the first one I completed.

I am not sure of the base paper because of my "Tiffanized" organization* but it was in my "green" bin and perfect for this layout with the fence like pattern.  The green and blue papers are Creative Memories.  The diecuts are from The Storytellers Club.  I used to belong to their monthly club and have tons of stuff that needs to be used.  I found these in my "soccer/sports" organized area.  I had already used the papers and other diecuts and since these were the only pieces left...they were lumped in with soccer.  It all came together perfectly. I elected to "double" the ribbon to add more black to the layout.  I also popped up some of the elements on pop dots.  I used the old CM small star punch for the stars.

Well,  I had to make page two match!

I love to complete!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
