Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge #14~~Some Interactive Fun~~

Good Morning Bloggers!!
It is time for another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge!
This weeks Challenge #14 ~~Some Interactive Fun~~
Create a LO with movement...whether it is a pull out tag, slider, waterfall....anything that will move.

This is my project
My son was chosen as 1 of 4 kids to play in the Minor League All Star Game. His team~the Nationals~ was such a well run team and the coaches so helpful thoughout the entire season that Parker not only learned so much about baseball but his skills improved greatly! I was so honored that they chose Parker to play and after talking with the coaches...they chose him because of his improvement and all the skills he learned throughout the season. His love for baseball has gone as far as wanting to try out in September for the Clarence Travel Team~9U. They are an intense travel team...practicing all winter and then playing throughout the spring and summer.....We will see when tryouts are here :)
I was so excited and so very proud of him, his team mates and the way they played in the All Star game that I had to make my LO right after the game and preserve that memory immediately :)
My movement for this Challenge are the tags. I made 2 using my gypsy~ Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge and the Sports Mania Cartridge.
I made my tag base and then welded a shadow Baseball to the top.
I then cut the baseball layers and attached them to form my tags.
Before attaching the baseballs, I stamped journaling lines
Here you can see my journal tags

Up close of the tags....I added in my white gel pen the stats of the game...some highlights of the day.

I love how this came out and Parker loved it so much it is already hanging in his room.

Some extra details about this LO....
The "My All Star" cut is a free SVG file I found over at It was jsut perfect for this LO.
The embellishments are from EK Success.
I used my white Sakura Gel Pen for the journaling.
The paper is from Carolees Creations & Company and was one of the packs I picked up at the CKC Convention. The great thing about this was only $1 for 6 pages :)

So I hope you will join us over at Whimsical Wednesdays for this week's challenge!
