How To Get 3 Guys Attention

Sketches in Thyme is having a Design Team Call! I created a fun layout based on this Design Team Call sketch.
I've wanted to create a layout with the photo of my nephew and his friend and my great-nephew watching the Armed Forces Bowl since we attended that game with them this past December. When we were looking at the photos after returning home, my nephew commented that the photo showed how to get three guys' attention - just put a football game in front of them. I knew immediately that would be the title of a layout.

Along with these photos and that fun title, this layout contains many of my favorite components - new products, old products, and memorabilia. The red Bazzill cardstock and green Bo Bunny patterned paper are new items.
The ticket and football stickers have been in my stash for years. In fact, the ticket stickers were square stickers with a white background. I cut those out and included five tickets since that's how many of us attended the game together. The Armed Forces Bowl memorabilia was actually a key chain that was given out at the game. I simply removed the keyring and added a brad to it.


I'm excited to enter this layout in the Sketches in Thyme Design Team Call - who else will join me? You have until April 22nd to complete your layout, post about the DT call on your blog, and leave a comment letting the Sketches in Thyme Mavens know you're interested in being considered for the next 4 month term.
