You're Out !

"Mom I can't drive any further. Can you take me to the hospital?"
Words every Mother wants to hear...NOT.
To Richard it looked like a matter of scooping up a ground ball at 2nd base. He needed to get there quick but, unfortunately, a small error of distance turned into a body slam into 2nd base with an thumb-first lead.
Crunch! A broken thumb and damage to the palm.

To me however, once doses of pain killers and sympathy were administered, it looked like a great opportunity to try out my new Instax Wide camera. I remember the days of the Polaroid One Step and I'm glad that type of camera is back.

Talk about instant gratification! Picture to craft room in less than 5 minutes.

 I used the September 1st, 2014  Stuck?! Sketch created by Laura Whitaker. I knew immediately I would use outlines of baseballs for the suggested circular shapes. All the different coloured strips of paper made the design super fun to work with.
I used a lot of the co-ordinated papers from the September 2014 kit I got through the Scrapmuch? Kit Club .

A bit of journaling on a depiction of home base, and the addition of stars for my all-star player, and the layout became one of my favourites.
There's lots of exciting things happening over at the Stuck?! site in celebration of its 1st Anniversary. You really should check it out. I'm loving the free cut files that work on my Silhouette Cameo.
Happy Anniversary and thank you Stuck?!
