Go Nebraska!

 What is this! Anyone that knows me knows I'm not a Nebraska fan, but this particular time I was. Let me set the scene. LOAD Day 24: Culture and the prompt was Sports, oh my which way to go yes which way to go. Lets go back in time a bit and do a layout from the past. I had these pictures printed so long ago and haven't done anything with them, well this day I did, I got the pictures on a scrapbook layout. (I've got lots of photos for Calvinball next month, when I found these I found a whole box full)
These are our son Albert's kids :) See Mom (Andrea) went to Nebraska by way of online for college and she got her bachelors degree there. Well when the Nebraska's Little League team came here to play for the Little League World series, she made sure to root them on, which in turn I rooted on, too :) This was the day they went up to see the 1st game that Nebraska played. She posted these pictures on facebook, I grabbed them with the intention of doing a layout. Oh my the kids were so little just a few years ago .
I used the sketch over at The Memory Nest for my layout No. 54

I did like the way the arrows were pointing at things and I used that to point out alot of the journalaing blocks

 Alot of the Ephemera came from Echo Park's Jack & Jill collection. This picture is the kids standing in front of the Carl Stotz memorial statue at Volunteer Stadium. (Layout about this memorial will be coming in a future layout) Enamel hearts and dots, word strips and ribbon for the tag came from my current kit as did the Jack & Jill collection.

Journaling and a fun title block. Some pieces here come from the October Afternoon Midway collection.


  1. Great adaptation of the sketch. Love all your journalling highlighted by the arrows from the sketch. Thanks for playing along at The Memory Nest.

  2. What a cute layout Tina! I can imagine how fun it would be to go to the Little League World Series and how exciting if you were a kid that got to play in it! I can imagine how big these boys are now too. I'm sure they were excited to watch the teams plays. Hugs, Brenda
