Orange and Black Time

So I love Orange and Black and I do not celebrate Halloween.  This time of year Orange and Black is all over my house.  That's about the only colors I wear.  I even found my daughter a pair of orange and black striped tights that were supposed to go with a witch costume but I bought them for a different reason.  Yep it's baseball season.  It's World series time to be exact, and our team is winning 2 games to none.  Check out what I made to go over our TV when we cheer on our San Francisco Giants

Won't that look great with the game on that big screen?  Our kids usually go to a harvest celebration the night of Halloween but it is not happening this year so we are thinking about having an Orange and Black party of the baseball variety.  Game 4 of the World Series will be on that night and it is a possible clincher if they win Game 3 too.  So as for details on this, the pennants are just triangles stretched out on the Gypsy from George and Basic Shapes, the font is Sesame Street Sunny Day, all paper is just random stuff from my stash.  The I {heart} baseball, the baseball and bat, and the Home Run were all things that my Not so secret Sister from the Cricut messageboard had cut for me some time ago and I believe she used SCAL.  The scalloped circles and marquee shapes are Nesties and a QuickCutz die.  I also used some ink, lots of pop dots and the Swiss Dots Embossing folder.  Here are some close ups.

Let's Go Giants!!!!!
This is me and my baby watching Game 2 last night.  My 4 year old took this pcture with my rebel and other than the weird angle making me look like I have 3 chins, she did a great job!


  1. Great job on the banner but you've got a budding photographer there! What a beautiful picture and no, you don't have 3 chins:o)


Thanks for showing me some blog love
