Texas Rangers

This is a mini album I did for the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper.  I really loved the papers that was given to me except it is from Authentique Glory Collection.  I looked through photos until 2007 and realized I had no 4th of July photos!  Even though I have 4 grown children and 4 grandchildren none were to be found.  So, my mind started thinking about what was I going to do.  At last it dawned on me we just went to our hometown baseball team...The Texas Rangers!  Yes, their colors are blue and red.  At last I had a mini album.  I used the paper and then with my Cricut I cut out Texas Rangers then inked all around each letter.  I was given a large silver star and painted it and then added Glossy Accents so it could not be chipped off.  I used Microsoft Clipart for the baseball which I enlarged and glued it to a piece of cardstock.  I then took Glossy Accents to each stitch.  I also used the T and placed on the star.  Please look inside to see what we did at the game!!!

I found this poem about a fly ball which I felt I needed to start off this mini album.  On the right page it my daughter Mandy and her son Logan and her niece Kenzie.  We were getting ready for the game to begin!

On the left side all the Rangers are lined up just waiting to begin.  On the right is Kenzie just grinning!!

This  photo is Darvish The Texas Rangers pitcher they just got this year.  This was his first game to pitch so there was a full house of  fans!  He started off a little slow but he soon got over his jitters and started pitching great!!!

The photo on the left is Darvish on the pitchers mound.  The photo on the right are my grandchildren...of course doing what kids love to do...EAT!!!  LOL

The photo on the left are the players out on the field while the photo on the right is a view of all the fans!  It was a beautiful day to be at the Ballpark.  It was in the 70's so the weather was great!!  Thank you so much for looking at the album.  I had a lot of fun putting it all together.

This mini album was sent to the Arlington Convention Center for Great American Scrapbook Convention.  I had on the back of the album a list of items that I used...but it was gone once I got the album back.  So, I will list again all the items that I used to the best of my memory!
