It's All About Basketball

                                                 


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!  I don't know where 2010 went, it passed by so quickly!  I don't usually make keep New Year's resolutions but here goes:  1. Devote more time to God and reading His word  2.Devote more time to fun family stuff(oh, this one is easy, some days all I get done is "playing" with the kids or that's what my husband says anyway) 3.  Get organized--if you could see my craft room right now you would say "she needs to get professional help"  4.  Start scrap booking again, I am only 7 years behind 5.  I am not going on a diet...ok maybe I will try to eat healthier  6.  I am not going to join the gym...well, my husband already bought a years membership for the family...I might try the treadmills. 7.  Spend more time doing housework crafting.  Glad that's out of the way!

It's time for another challenge at  the Papercubed(P3) blog, the theme for this month was sports.  My girls participate in swim team, soccer, and basketball, my husband is a fitness guru and an avid hiker(he is working on completing the Appalachian Trail...approx. 3000 miles..in segments of course), and me...well I am a spectator.  But, basketball is THE biggie around our house.  Shelby is on the middle school team as well as a travel team and Sadie plays church league and Toy(my husband, not a typo) is Sadie's coach.  All that being said, I knew my project would be about basketball,  I just didn't have a clue what to make until I saw this little paint can in the Christmas aisle at Walmart.  I had some paper that was textured like a basketball so I used it as a liner and used stickers to make a border around the top and for the lid.  I tied a ribbon on the handle and added some basketball beads.  The tag is an acrylic block with a sticker.  Very easy to make but I love how it turned out and will make a perfect gift container to give to a coach or a party favor. 

Make sure you visit the P3 blog and see what the rest of the Design Team came up with, they are a VERY talented team.
