For the Coach

My oldest, DJ, was in soccer for the first time this spring. He started out so awkward that first game and has progressed really well these past weeks. He even scored a goal!

His last game is next week Saturday, and I wanted to make a little something for his teammates and coach, so I made some frames to put the team picture in.

The good news is, I really like how the frame turned out. It started out as a $1 unfinished wood frame from Michaels. I painted it white with regular old acrylic paint (it took 3 coats), and then used All Star Team from PTI to stamp the images in black craft ink. **You absolutely need to seal the frame with a spray selaer when you are done stamping. The ink smears really easy, even when heat set.**

The bad news is that the team picture I took last Saturday didn't turn out at all and I hope that one of the other parents will be able to email a picture they took. I am a terrible photographer! Horrible. Need to take a class for sure.

I also made a Thank You card for the coach. The coaches are all volunteers and I wanted the coach to know that I appreciate her time. I was inspired by a card from someone else's blog, but I am sorry, I cannot find it now. It had a similar lay out, but it had balls that were bouncing. I thought it was a PTI design team member, but I just spent an hour looking for the card and couldn't find it. I'm sorry!

Thanks for stopping by!
