T-Shirt Titles

One of my pastimes while waiting for Kevin's events at interminably long swim meets is to check out all the other team T's and their slogans. I thought this one, "Practice Like A champion" was particularly cool, with an emphasis on the letters, ACT. Of course, I filed it away, knowing it would turn up on a scrapbook page one day...and it did:


The bright orange watercolor cardstock background was made with Gelatos and water, bringing out the little bits of orange in the patterned paper. Uh-oh, do you see the rogue green enamel dot in the middle of my photo?! Hahaha...I didn't notice it until just now! I meant to add only the white ones, little clusters of "bubbles":


Cutting large letters out of the Cameron paper from Elle's Studio, I was able to emphasize the word "ACT" in my title:  


Everything is from Scraptastic's August kit, I Found A Boy, except for the tiny letter stickers and heart brad, leftovers from a previous Scraptastic kit. 

I was glad to have found this great team slogan, and it worked perfectly for my page. Where do you find title inspiration?

Really super job and I, too, love the title phrase - will have to tell my cheerleader daughters that! I would never have noticed that green dot until you pointed it out - looks like a decoration on the back of her suit!! :) Terrific job and lovely colors.

What a great idea and the page is really striking with these fun colors. I love the way you did the title. But isn't it kind of sad that we cant look at anything anymore without thinking of how it will work for scrapbooking?! LOL! I bought a button at Menchies Frozen yogurt while I was there yesterday because it was a cute flair.
