Mets vs. Phillies Layout

I wanted to do a layout about baseball. AJ loves the Phillies, and I am a Mets fan through and through. This has caused more than a few problems. You see, the Mets and Phillies are division rivals. I guess we've been lucky that our teams haven't both been good while we've been dating (and by that, I mean the Phillies keep going to the playoffs and the Mets keep ending up in fourth place).

But, that makes it even funnier when the Mets beat the Phillies, because he gets so mad when they lose to such a "bad" team. And I get mad when he calls my team bad.

I very rarely make one page layouts, but I thought I would try some :)

I wanted to do something with the colors. They clash, like the teams. So I cut out 2x2 squares of red (for the Phillies), and blue and orange (for the Mets). I didn't have to cut out any white, because I used a white page. I used them all to make a quilt.




I started drawing in "stitch" marks (you can see on the top row) but then I realized it made more sense to draw them in after I'd placed all my pictures, journaling and embellishments, so that I didn't have to draw as many! Aren't those little baseball players cute? I made them with the Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls. I love that cartridge, there are so many cute things you can use from it, and I love making the little people to go on the pages!

 
But I really love how the quilt marks pull it all together. Before, the colors weren't very cohesive, but the quilt lines made it all come together.


I really like how it turned out!
