And don't forget that the random prize patrol is watching so leave a comment on every blog each day to be eligible for the prizes!!

I am smitten with the Vintage Varsity set that is now available.  I just couldn't resist - I FINALLY made a mini album of my son's illustrious baseball career that started in Kindergarten.  He's in Middle School now and he made the full time travel team, so he won't be playing Park District ball anymore.  This album goes through his Park District years.

This whole album was created with papers and chipboard that I bought online at Scrap and Paper Corner.  There was no manufacturer listed on the box, so I don't know who made the plain album or the patterned papers.

For the front cover, I stamped Vintage Varsity in white ink and cut a sentiment out with my Cricut.

Then, I added some mini staples iwth the Tim Holtz tiny attacher and an EK Success baseball embellishment.

For each year that corresponds with his picture, I used Vintage Varsity to show what year it was.  What a little munchkin he was back then!!!!

I added some fun journaling and embellishments I've been hoarding for a while.  I changed up the placement of the dates on each page/spread to make it more interesting.

I stamped the date on the above image on a transparency in Staz-On ink.  Then I added some stars.  It's actually really stunning when you see it in person! The stamp set stamps well with any ink I use!!!!

For the last page, I turned his picture into a packaged hangtag.  I sealed it up inside a plastic goodie bag so it looks like it should be hanging on a rack at a store!  My son got a kick out of this one!!!
