Football Season.....{Challenge Project}

Good Morning Everyone!!!
Hope the start of your week has been a good one.
I have another project to share today, this one for a few challenges I would like to enter.
This week over at Peachy Keen Stamps, the challenge was 3D Fall Sports. 
Football season has just ended for my oldest :( 
so this challenge was perfect for making a treat that I know he would LOVE.
I hope you don't mind also that I share a few football pics of him as well.

Here is my son...#30 for the Clarence Bulldogs.
He is the starting Center and I am so proud of him. He has worked his butt off this season and even though they had a poor record each and every kiddo on that team played hard!

The annual Pink Bowl...A local business donates pink socks to all the boys to wear for the month of October for Breast Cancer Awareness. I LOVE to see them add addition pink to their uniforms. I made pink bones to add to their helmets and they really show their support!
 Thanks to Annie over at SVGCutting Files~ she made this Bulldog cut for me and I turned it into a vinyl image that I added to a tumbler. On the back I added Casey's initials and number. Turned out adorable....so much so that I had a bunch or orders for these to be made for others :)
And here is the final game of the season that took place on Saturday night. 
I am still cleaning up all the mud that came home with us :)
Now that I shared my pictures~ thanks for keeping with me...
Here is my project!
I wanted to keep it on the simpler side,  seeing that he is a teen boy...LOL!
So here is what I made for him....
I used the Sports Bags Gift Bags SVG file from SVGCutting Files and embossed the football using the swiss dots embossing folder. After putting the bag together~which BTW was SO SUPER EASY~ I made the tag to attach to the bag. Using the October SOTM kit from Peachy Keen Stamps, I stamped the border on a die cut circle from the matching SVG file from PKS and then added the sentiment into the center. On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the football from the same PKS set and then fussy cut and popped it up onto the tag.
Finally, I added some Krazy For Kraft Trendy Twine to attach the tag to the bag, then filled a pretzel bag with some of my son's favorite candy....gobstoppers :) and tied that with another piece of TT.
So there is my project....I sure hope you all like it!
Thanks so much for hanging with me for this super LONG post!

  18. Awesome projects and I love the Bulldog on the tumbler:) Aww such great photos of your little man:) Happy Halloween my friend

  19. Hey Jessica!! I didn't think that this post was long at all, (although my sisters tell me that I am the queen of long text's) Then I told them to read one of my blog post's!! haha My son had to stop playing football, because the other kids on the team kept getting taller, and he kind of stopped. Which bummed him out, because his dad is 6' 4" and his brother who has no interest in sports, is 6 '3" ! Anyway.my point is that I loved this page, and your cup, and I have a bunch of football scrap supplies that I never dot to use, and some that I used part of a pack of something, and I would love to share with someone who's child loves sports as much as my Jason does. Email me with your address, and I will send you some fun goodies!! kadris@aol.com!! Imagine that my sisters say that I ramble!! Karen♥

  20. I remember the football days with my son, and actually my granddaughter Lily is a cheerleader for a football team here in Derby so it's back in my life again, hubby and I enjoy watching her cheer and the little guys play football.
    I love all you pics and treasures that you made.

  21. Cute, cute, cute! Happy Halloween my friend!

  22. Awesome! Love the football gift bag and tag! Thanks for joining the Peachy challenge!

  23. You have one handsome son. The tumbler and treat box are fabulous.
    Have a creative day.
