Paper Cubed Sports Challenge

Well can you believe we have already gone through another month? It's the first of the month and that means a new challenge from Paper Cubed. This month the challenge is Sports...anything that is not a card and any kind of sport is a go....so stop on by, see what the very talented team has created, then play along with us....we would love to see what you come up with.........ENJOY!!!!!!!!

For the life of me I couldn't figure out what to make. We are avid football fans, as you know...lol...but my mind was so blank.....I remembered I had this wooden puzzle frame that needed some lovin, so I figured I'd use that to make something.....I also turned it into a picture frame.....

************

I used paper from Karen Foster--Tim Holtz door knob metal number and memo pin--other wooden frame/puzzle pieces, wooden #1 (underneath metal number) and ball and chain

here I added the doorknob to pull the puzzle pieces out of the frame....they are very tightly squeezed in there to I just wanted a way to pull them out.....I added the knob on top of a metal washer from the hardware store....made the football out of chipboard...

...closer view of the pieces taken out...in this photo you can see how I layered the metal number on top of the wooden piece...I was just to lazy to make a # sign myself....lol...... and here's the picture frame....I had to keep this very simple so that the puzzle pieces fit back in....and this is my number one fan....lol...our little grandbaby (photo is a year old)...he lives in a house full of Baltimore Ravens Fans, so I have to get my little tidbits in there while he's young with my Steeler's being #1...and to prep him for becoming a STEELER'S FAN!!!!....lol....so I figure over the next few years, as we sit and put this puzzle together, he will know that the STEELER'S ARE #1.....and the RAVEN'S will always be in our DUST!!!!! LOL!!!! The pilgrim's that they are... ************************ On a side note, take notice of how I used that memo pin from Tim Holtz....I trimmed the pokey thing off, and using my pliers, I twisted this to make a sort of hanger....it took some muscle, but I did it....Tim's metal is very strong and very hard to twist using the pliers....but I do like how it turned out though.... I'm thinking that our little fan will enjoy putting this together with me...*smile*... ..........here's all the pieces......
**************
A little ditty I found on the net......
Top 10 stupid things women say during a football game (from a man's view)...
(sorry girls--some of these made me laugh) •10. If Cristiano Ronaldo plays at Real Madrid and for Portugal too, what happens when Real Madrid plays against Portugal? •9. Which T-Shirt do you like more? •8. What happens if someone score a goal? •7. Why are they chasing that ball? •6. Why are they still running if they don’t have the ball? •5. Honey, my mom is on phone. Do you want to talk with her? •4. They are playing even if it’s raining? •3. Why are you so angry? Is JUST a game… •2. Can’t you see the score tomorrow? •1. Honey, if you are an Arsenal fan, i don’t understand why are you watching Liverpool v Manchester United? *****************
Well I do hope that you can stop over and play along with us this month at P3. You have a whole month to play along....so show us who your favorite team is, or that favorite photo in a frame....we would love to see it.........Hugs from Charm City....

Fabulous idea! Love the little football charm too. I think the baby needs a change of shirt though, perhaps to an Eagles jersey.

This is awesome, Nancy! I love how you turned it into a photo frame, but also made use of the puzzle pieces too! Dig all the hardware!
Your little woman at football game snippets gave me an early morning chuckle! I've said some of those things before!
