Lasting Memories #55 Sketch and fall colors

Good morning ... today is another Sunday filled with Lasting Memories. Karen really knows how to challenge me somedays.  This week she gave us a sketch to do and challenged us to use fall I know I've said I like doing sketches, but with my printer still not having any ink, it's hard for me to just run and print a few pictures, so I have been relying on some very OLD pictures.  I found these 2 in my boxes of pictures...actually this part has been very fun, going through old least I am getting some older stuff scrapped.  Anyway, these pictures screamed FALL to here goes.
The football, flower and tag were all cut with my E-Craft and I used my 
peachykeen faces to give the football some pop.  The flower was left over 
from a project I did last week and you can find the tutorial here.
I used my Dymo buddy to punch out the title and 
I hand dyed my ribbon to match the papers.
So I hope I've inspired you to do a layout with this sketch and use some fall colors and head on over to Lasting Memories and enter the challenge...they are so much fun.  If you are new to scrapbooking or lost on how to start, Lasting Memories is a great place to start.  There is so much talent over there and the ladies are so inspirational.  See you next week...
