Dueling Darlings Kickoff!

It is the 15thof the month and that means another Dueling Darlings challenge. Our hostesses for August are LJ-Laura Jean for the Divas and Terry for the Dazzlers.
I loved all of the papers and embellishments that Carol sent--I wanted to use all of it!  I was able to add a few more elements to the inside of my card than I typically do.  Terry and LJ also wanted us to share some of our favorite fall memories and they said it did not need to be sport related.  Well--mine is for sure.  I was a high school volleyball coach for 19 years, so that provided some wonderful memories for me-participating in the state tournament three times was a highlight!  I also love Friday night high school football and Saturday afternoon college football games.  My godson/great-nephew JL-Jack Lucas--is going to be attending UW-Whitewater as a Freshman this fall.  He is also going to be on the football team and the university is about 35 miles from my house.  I am sure the next 4-5 years will include attending many football games with my family.  Then--Sunday is Packer Day and my card shows off the Green and Gold!

Here is the inside of my card.

SUPER FUN card, Barb! And no surprise there with the Packers colors! That's awesome about JL and I'm sure you'll have lots of great memories of going to see him play the next 4 yrs.

Perfect card Barb! I love how you decorated the inside of it - and I'm not surprised to see so many many sports-related fall memories and that you will be able to build more with JL playing football at UW-Whitewater!
