The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge-A Star is Born

Hello everyone!  I am posting my entry into this week's Cuttlebug Spot Challenge.  I have two sports stars in my family, Dennis and Ruby, they played basketball this year in Mini-Hoops.  This gave me an excellent opportunity to make a layout for their basketball season this year.  I haven't printed my pictures yet to place in the mattings, so you will have to imagine that there are cute pics in these layouts.  I made two scrapbook pages with the same layout for both.
Their mascot is a lion (from Team Spirit cartridge), school colors are red, white & blue, and both of them were #23 (jersey from basketball cartridge).  I used MCT dies for the smaller matting and the strip that has sentiment stamped (MCT stamps) on it.  The larger matting was created with my gypsy.  One of the mattings was ran through a star embossing folder before cutting with the die.  I then used red and blue chalks to enhance the star embossing.  I used the same technique except with a different embossing folder and ink instead for part of my title.  You can get a closer look at these two items below.
I cut out stars from the Plantin School cartridge and used Sports candies stamps by Jaded Blossom to add more detail.  I used a set of Doodlebug font stamps for the letters to makeup their names on each layout.  I also used a ticket stamp in a set by Karen Foster to make my journaling area.  This turned out super cute!
 I included below a picture of my daughter, Ruby's page. 
I hope you liked this layout and thanks for stopping by.
