More Football digital layout from the Sweetshoppedesigns

Any fan of football would understand…

Today was a historical moment at our house, if you read the layout you will see.  I love it just because my son can’t STAND to admit he likes the Seahawks but it’s a challenge for him to admit after all these years that he will like the Seahawks again.   He has always been the opposite of what I say, I say black he says white I say chocolate he say vanilla and the kid LOVES chocolate!  So this is a huge deal for us, and funnier than you can imagine in a post.  

Journaling isn’t my strongest point in scrapbooking but there wasn’t enough room for this one to tell all but good enough!  He will KILL me when he see’s this post!  LOL  What an evil mother I am!

Goodbye 49rs


Sorry 49’r fans.  I still love having you all here too.  It’s just a game to me.  Fun and even more fun now that he is in high school ball.  I am always asking questions about the game and what they do, so I can learn what the importance of his role is in the game.  They said some awesome stuff about him in the banquet I was such a proud mom I wanted to stand up and cheer him on but I am sure he would have died of embarrassment.  It started out how quiet he was… didn’t think they were talking about my boy at first then the coach went further and further more towards how he performed, by the end of the year he really pulled through.  They had only 3 losses this whole year and he was a proud player to help be a winner.  He didn’t make the basketball team but after the banquet I actually got him into weight training classes after school and that is going to really boost his confidence.  Even better he is excited about something he planned on never doing!  He needs it for his runner’s knee and he will be lookin’ good for all those girls I am gonna have to chase off until he is old enough!  I am safe as long as sports are more important!  Teens are a blast!

I hope you had a great crafty weekend too.  Here we are trying to get ready for the holidays and it isn’t coming naturally for me.  It been a challenging month on my favorite months to craft from Halloween to Valentines day but hopefully I get some more mojo and able to post more inspiration for you, for new layouts and projects.  Have a wonderful week!


Hi, I just thought I would share a card I made today.  I have been very sad for a long time co-worker that is in the process of loosing her husband.  This weekend I believe she was moving him into the cottage, where people spend their last days.  I don’t talk to her much about it but I sure feel for her.  Many years of marriage and about to retire soon. I couldn’t imagine how she feels.  I have known to many women who have lost their husband through the years, it only makes me appreciate mine more because I worry every day one day he will be gone too.


I love to digital color either on my phone or tablet.  I did this in an app called Sketchbook Pro on my Galaxy tablet, I have the app on all my devices, phone, and my Nexus since I love to color and draw so much.  I downloaded the free coloring page from a google search, and I believe I brought it into another app called Photoshop Touch to get rid of the white background.  I can color the entire image in that app but I prefer Sketchbook since I have used it longer.  That is one downfall that program has, if I can do that I am not sure how.  If it is an easy trace I can just add a layer and turn down the opacity on the top layer and redraw it by tracing then delete the original layer, rather than switching programs back and forth.  I give all credits to the free coloring pages though cause this is basically their image.  I just color away.  So anyway, I believe I saved it as a PNG file and brought it to the Silhouette and cut it out.  I love how it turned out.  Sadly not for the reason it was being made.  So I thought I would share my fun with you if you like to color too.   Shading is a breeze.  I did outline with a color pen just because I didn’t think of it before.

On a lighter note here is a couple more free color pages I made…

Gotta Love SUPERMAN!   I hope you have enjoyed this post and give Sketchbook a try.  Love it!  They have a free version available to try before you buy but then Photoshop Touch is a pretty good one too.  Lately it’s been to hot here to do much else but stay OUT of the heat!  I haven’t even been on my computer hardly at all because it’s just to dang hot!  Have a wonderful Sunday!
