SOUS challenges

I've been back in the mood to scrap again. I'm hoping that by following awesome sketches that I can get caught back up in no time!! This first one is from a SOUS challenge from January 29. I just had to scrap the Colts going to Super Bowl. It was such an exciting game and an awesome outcome! I used my Cricut for this LO. I used Sports Mania for the giant football and Old West for the title including the little horseshoes for the U's. I welded my title together on my Gypsy and cut it. I also used this amazing color accent print studio called Magic Splash. It's the best color accenting software that I've used. You can either have your pic in black and white and color in what you want or start in color and color in in black and white. I wanted to make my pics really pop on this LO so I chose to color accent certain things. On the first pic, I accented the Colts players and the endzone, second pic...the stadium lights with the final score, and third pic...the football with the Colts vs. the Saints on it. These pictures were all taken of our TV screen while the game was on.

For this LO, I followed the sketch from January 22 from SOUS. I used Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More for the background shapes, Doodlecharms for the dog face, A Child's Year for the dog bones, George for the circle, and Paper Pups for the title. Max had the stomach flu last weekend and he was trying to stay awake to watch the AFC Championship game between the Colts and the Jets but he kept falling asleep. His dog, Rootbeer, was dressed in his Colts gear too. Printed papers are from the DCWV Pet Stack.

Go Colts! I love this LO! I recently did a LO of the colts from the afc championship game but I don't have the sport cart or the wild west one so I couldn't get the cuts I really wanted! Yours turned out so cute!
