The entire goal of this layout was to include several photos on one 12x12" page. It seems rare to find that these days as inspiration tends to feature only one enlargement or focus photograph. So I printed all the photos wallet-size and create two vertical "photo strips", adhering them flush above and below one another.
Bella Blvd's Jailbird Designer Tape was the perfect neutral (& referee-like) embellishment. The small strips of tape also helped break-up the pictures a bit, making it easier to look at the entire layout.
I dove into my Bella Blvd Stick Pin Flags and Buttons to add some dimension.
I think that textured paper is meant for football pages...but it works great for basketball too! I'm quickly getting further and further behind on my chronological scrapbooking, as you see this is still from 2011. I have the wedding planning to thank for that, but can't wait for later this year to have a few scrapbooking weekends and get caught up :) Happy Monday!
