Lombardi Party

Here is the first page created with Scraptastic's Faded Jeans kit. When our team won the Super Bowl a couple of years ago, the city went nuts, and the partying went on and on. Although I'd completed a couple of layouts and a mini-album about the win, I still had some scrap-worthy photos begging for a page: Coach Sean Peyton driving from the airport waving the Lombardi trophy out the sunroof of his car, Dave Matthews performing at the NFL Kick-off party, and a trio of Saints fans with their homemade trophy hats!



To tie together the disparate photos (from different days and in dissimilar sizes) I arranged and matted them together on a rectangular piece of cardstock.The linear blocking gave it some unity.


Then the title was cut with my Cricut, but instead of using the individual letters, I used the negative on my page, revealing the cardstock beneath the patterned paper. (Glimmer Mist in Jack O' Lantern turned cream-colored cardstock to an orange that closely matched the orange of the polka dot patterned paper.)


My "trophy" is simply a piece of chipboard covered in tin foil! So easy to do!

I love how this page portrays a little more of the story of those days, that year, and our super team.

Oh my word Madeline! This totally jumped out at me from the side of my blog! Hilarious hats! I love it! And the metallic trophy embellishment. Really creative. And I love the loop de loops at the top of the page.

I love it! Those hats are a riot! Good job tying those pictures all together! Did you hinge that mat and add more behind too? fun color combo. I have a lot of pictures of DH in Syracuse Orange and Navy. They scare me too much to scrap. ;)
