Welcome to Scrap-Friendzy's "Get Your Game On" blog hop!!You should be coming here from Tracey's blog, if not head on over to the Scrap-Friendzy Blog, and start from the beginning!

Everyone has football on the brain this weekend, getting ready for the big Superbowl game on Sunday, and we do too.... but not football like you're thinking- for this Blog Hop, we will be using football to give us some scrappy inspiration!

Our Blog Hop runs from now until midnight (cst) February 5th. But, like everything we do at Scrap-Friendzy- this is NOT just a regular Blog Hop. We're gonna throw in a little extra fun with a
Touchdown Challenge!

At every stop on the hop, you will be given a special "ingredient" from each DT Member. Your Challenge is to take any 6 of the "ingredients" and complete any ONE project of your choice for a touchdown!!!! When you score a touchdown, you will be entered into a drawing for our Blog Hop Grand Prize! If you're feeling confident and think you can make that extra point, don't kick your project.... just use 7 of the ingredients and your name will go into the drawing twice!!!! Simply upload your project in the Gallery at SF and link it to the "Get Your Game on" blog hop thread in the forum to be eligible for the Grand Prize AND earn 25 bonus Friendz Pointz in the month of February just for playing in the game!!

Now, I am going to be honest, I had a HARD time with this one. I don't watch football, at all, I even had to google to see who was playing. So after some help from the ladies on the DT, and a couple of failed attempts at a couple different layout ideas, I have this one to share...It is a older layout that I have tweaked some to go more with my current style. I don't normally do that, but I wasn't happy with this album from the beginning, its 8.5x11, which I have a very hard time scrapping with.

For my "football" theme, I chose the team colors...I have red, white, and blue, white a little bit of pink added in for good measure. :)

( Not the best picture, I apologize, I can't even photography this size well for some reason! lol)


Now, since I don't really follow football, I couldn't think of an element for you to use on your layout that would correlate with that, so I chose one of my favorite go-to embellishments...buttons!

I used some chipboard buttons on my layout, but any type of button you prefer will count! :)


Can't wait to see what you create. Remember to link your LO up to this thread in the forum after you have collected all your ingredients and chosen your 6 or 7 to use.

I am also offering a RAK...all you have to do is become a follower and leave me a comment, or leave me a comment letting me know that you already are one, and I will randomly select someone to receive some goodies!

Next up on the blog hop is Tracy!

Have a blessed weekend, and create something you love!

I love that layout! And I have to tell you that I used to feel the same way about 8.5" x 11" but now they are my favorite and my go-to size to scrap. :) You never know...

Amanda, I know nothing about football either! I had to smile when you said you had to google to see who was playing - I would've had to do that too. I like that you took something you didn't know much about and drew your inspo from the colors. I love the way you did the title work on your super cute page!
