This was Jacob's first year playing t-ball (for 4 year olds). I seem to have lost my scrapping mojo, cause I have certainly struggled with the last two layouts! ~~sigh~~ Maybe it'll come back soon! The black border I added in PSE...the layout is just on white cardstock. I doodled the grids in opposing corners. I cut the shaped border with a Fiskars edge punch. The baseball in the word "ball" is actually a large white brad that I drew "stitching" on with a slick writer pen. Panthers 2009 was handwritten. Journaling is tucked behind the group shot and reads:
This was your first year playing t-ball. You guys were so cute! I couldn’t help but laugh when you were playing the catcher position…only you spent the inning drawing pictures in the dirt. The children on the field were funny too. Whenever a ball was hit to the outfield, EVERYONE on the team would race to the ball, then fight over it! Some players would try to run the bases backwards! At one game, the ball was hit to the shortstop and the little guy running the bases, stopped, picked up the ball and gave it to the shortstop! Whenever it was your turn to bat, you would hit the ball, and then watch it to see where it was going instead of running to first base! Every game, you couldn’t wait to see what was for “snack” when the game was over. I think, perhaps, this was your favorite part of the game!
