Title Author Description


October's second Design Team challenge was to use 8 1/2 x 11 grid paper to create a page and mount it on 12 x 12 paper. We were also to incorporate felt and/or twine, string, jute into our design.

My son's high school homecoming was two weeks ago and those photos were fresh in my camera, so I decided to use them for my page. I combined some shots from his football game and a few photos of the kids dressed up before going to the dance the next night.

The school colors are royal blue and white, so I stuck with that theme throughout my page design.

I recently purchased a banner die cut for my cuttle bug and I wanted to try it with some felt I had. It worked great. I used the felt and some baker's twine to create the banner for my title and cut out the letters with my Cricut. I finished off the banner with some glitter brads and staples from my beloved "Tiny Attacher"!

I don't know how I missed this one - I love this layout! I like the banner balanced on two sides of the layout and the colors are perfect!

Love how you used the bakers twine to attach the felt pennants! Great use of embellishement choices!

The colors are great (they are my high school clors, by the way, so that is probably why I like them so much!). The felt and twine banner is a perfect embellishment. Good job!

On the way to the dance, the kids stopped by an old barn that is owned by a relative of one of the kids. That relative was working on the old car (I have no idea what kind of car it is). They thought it would be a fun place to take some pictures. I love the shot!

What a fun Homecoming page! The group photo of the kids with the car is wonderful! Your title looks great. I like how you used the staples and the twine. so smart!

The felt pennants hanging from the twine looks great...such a carefree, blowing in the wind type of thing! The letters have that varsity look to them too! The action on the field with the scoreboard to commemorate the event captures the game well. Everybody all dressed up the next night for the dance in their finest rounds out the memory of your son's weekend celebration very nicely, Sarah. I am curious...what is that car they are posing around? With the doors opening that way I'd think...old...foreign....expensive....or just something fun!
