Holly Jolly Baseball?

I'm sharing one page of a two page spread to show you that
1) We were given some AWESOME tickets to see the Texas Rangers play this season.  
2) You can use Christmas paper for other events - don't be afraid to try it!

The two Cherry Cobbler prints used in this layout are from the Jolly Holiday pack of paper in the main catalog.  When I fixated on the circles...

... the circles led to Baseball!

My most wonderful upline, Jenifer, was with me when I did this layout and she happened to mention that when she face paints she is frequently asked to paint baseballs - of course, I had to make her "prove it."

Sure enough, she was telling the truth - she does an awesome baseball from a circle punch! 

If I had relied on my own faint memory of what a baseball looks like, the stitches would have been closer to the edge of the ball.  It certainly wouldn't have looked this good.

See the advantage to scrapping with friends?

Love how you used the paper for your baseball page - I was wondering what I'd do with those sheets in my pack, and now I've got some ideas! Wonderful page.

I would never have thought of that, but wow, it really does make a great baseball page. Great picture, too and love the baseball.
