USA Wins Group...Let's celebrate with a RAK!!!

Woo Hoo!!!! We are super excited in this house and can not wait for the game tomorrow! You would not believe the jumping up and down, hugs and celebrating that went on when Donovan kicked that goal in during the game against Algeria!!!

I am feeling hopeful and decided I needed to do a RAK to celebrate!

I just bought this gorgeous American Crafts ribbon and I want to share it. I am offering up a yard of each ribbon...all you have to do it leave a comment at the end of this post to be entered.

The new Philadelphia Union Soccer team was in town this week and played our hometown team the Reading United. We had a great time at the game!

Next month we will be going to see the Philadelphia Union play Manchester United. Can't wait!

I do have a few scrappy projects to share... I know I have said this before but I love the Dan The Record Man line by Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker. I seem to pull it out over and over...

I started off making this layout of my niece Samantha. She is an amazing softball player and I love seeing her play. I am always taking lots of pictures of her pitching and playing. This year she was a freshman in high school and not only did she make the varsity squad, she pitched all the teams big games and even had a NO HITTER...WOO HOO Sammy. I am a very proud aunt and decided to show her off in this layout! She was in the paper today because she was chosen as an Honorable Mention for the County Athlete Awards.

Check out the Burlap Buttons and Cool Cord Brads.

Now I don't know about your house but mine has been hit hard by the Silly Bands Craze...actually the kids are driving me nuts with all the trading. I was finding them all over the house so I decided to make my boys altered boxes to keep them in.

I simply added pattern paper and ribbon to the edge of the box. Around the lid I used a liquid adhesive and sprinkled micro-beads over it.

Now these little bands have a home and it is much cuter than the Ziploc bags they lived in before. LOL!

On the Pebbles blog we have been celebrating summer. Don't forget to check it out for some great summer idea projects. Here is a layout I made.

I will be back in just a few days with a new GCD Studios layout to share. Thanks so much for stopping by!

USA! USA! Let's just hope that the team doesn't wait 'til the 91st minute to seal the deal this time against Ghana, ay? (giving us fits over here!)
Thanks for the chance at this lovely ribbon. Love your projects too - the bands box is a definite winner...although I do believe I'd need a pretty darn big box for my daughter's "collection". ;)

Great layouts! The Dan the Record Man one is so much fun! I take that collection too literally I think--thanks for the inspiration! Those silly sticks (wrong name I'm sure) look like fun! Thanks for a chance at winning the ribbons!
