Tchoukball? Say What?!


You've heard of baseball, football, basketball, even volleyball. But have you ever heard of tchoukball? It was new to me when Kevin's brother came home with a sign-up sheet for the intramural game a few years ago. It was a popular wintertime sport at his school. And now Kevin, attending the same school, has learned how to play the game. It was developed by a Swiss biologist who saw it as a safe alternative to the more injury-inducing sports like football, soccer and rugby.

Here's my page about the sport, created with the Scraptastic's Carry On kit:


I love it when kids are eager to participate in activities that get them outdoors and moving. And tchoukball is a great one for that! They are in constant motion! I've used a painted arrow on the photo below to point out my child in the midst of the action:


This page is also used to introduce the Scraptastic Challenge for this week: Scraplift YOURSELF!

You know you have one...a page that you absolutely love. Maybe it's one where you tried out some new technique...and it worked. Or an inspiring design that really came together. You know, the one that makes you proud! Hey, if it worked once...it should work again, right? I took a recent favorite and scraplifted it for my Tchoukball page. I moved the banner and photo down a bit and stretched that title out over the upper portion of the page, but otherwise, the page design remained pretty similar!

Here's the original. Remember this?



The design is easy to duplicate, so why not?  Compare the pages and see what you think! With a totally different color scheme and subtle differences in design, I've created a brand new layout that I love.

I have no idea what tchoukball is, but your layout about it is fantastic! :-) Love how you scraplifted a layout of your own.

That's a new sport to me, but it looks like fun! Great page design to use again, and with new supplies you really get a different look.

Love both of these pages! There is a similar feel to both pages, but the products are so different they are night and day. I sure don't need to reinvent the wheel every time, either. :)
