Jordan's High School Scrapbook "The Sports Pages"

Hello! Today I have a double page scrap book page from my son's high school scrap book to show you. Jordan ran in both Cross Country and Track and did very well in each sport. Here are the two pages together as they are seen in the scrap book. Jordan is the boy in the dark blue uniform. Here is just the first page. The ribbons and medals are the actual awards he won. The sentiments were done on the computer
Here is a close up of the medal and some embellies. The paper and embellies came from a sports scrap booking kit purchased at JoAnn's.

Here is the second page. The actual newspaper articles were used. I do not spray my newspaper with Archival Mist because I think its ridiculous. I love it when my newspaper articles turn yellow. That shows how old and valuable they are! And, I love the look.

Here is a close up of another one of his ribbons and the embellies used from the scrap book kit.

And here is close up of the newspaper photograph. Jordan is the shortest one in the back row.

I hope I've given you some ideas on how to scrap book your children's sport photos and newspaper articles! Have a great day! Amy


  1. WOW WOW WOW Amy your pages are AWESOME!!!!!!

  2. What awesome pages Amy. Your son will love these displaying his life and achievements!!

  3. Super duper layouts!!!! Love the way you did these!

  4. It's great that you could incorporate the actual ribbons and medal with the newspaper articles.

    Although I haven't had a lot of opportunity to scrap with newspaper articles, I use a copy of them. I know what you mean about turning yellow and I wouldn't mind that either, but I have newspaper items from my parents/grandparents that are more than yellow but actually falling apart because the acid ate through the fibers over the years. I think how you matted yours will preserve them longer.
