I cannot believe I'm into Pastels..

This is my first time to use October Afternoon products. I don't know why but lately I've been into pastel colored pps which I normally wouldn't go for but something changed and i am actually enjoying it. I cannot believe myself when I chose to buy My Little Shoebox and American Crafts Letterbox papers (which were all light colored papers) last week instead of Graphic 45! I guess some things really do change.

Here's a page about our yearly basketball game appointments - we don't miss any game where DLSU (De La Salle University) is playing. It's college basketball I know but Gio used to be the Sports Editor of the official school newsletter so you can kinda understand his fanaticism in addition to the fact that he loves this game so much. And so I decided to do this page because I never want to forget such a special memory.

This is also a layout based on this week's sketch over at Sketch Inspiration.

Here are the close ups...
The yellow strip of paper was stamped with Hampton Arts word strip - one of the new stamps I purchased and I love it!

Thiis the photo mat which I embossed using my cuttlebug. I heat embossed the word "YOU" with clear powder and then inked the entire area with shabby shutters and then painted the center square with Shimmerz Blingz. I'm lovin all my Shimmerz. And underneath the mat is a Tim Holtz ticket stamp.

And the title... So glad I found these brown alpha's that go well with the page.

Materials used:
Papers - OA Farmhouse
Embellishment: OA Farmhouse die cuts
Alpha: AC Thickers, Pink Paislee
Inks: Distress Ink, Blingz, Staz On, Colorbox
Stamps: Tim Holtz, Hampton Arts

 Thanks for looking and Have a Great Day!
