Oh Geez, More Calendar Pages?

The answer is YES!!  Hope you're not getting too sick of seeing all of these pages yet, and if you are, just remember, there's only 12 months in a year...and we're on month NINE!  Haha!!

Allllrighty then, I need to preface this page just a little.  I live near Seattle.  I am a Seahawks fan.  The Seahawks have been to the Superbowl once....ever.  It was awesome...it was amazing...we were going to win.  That is, until the "Steelers" came in and stole the game (which is why I now refer to them as the Stealers, not Steelers!)  I think a ref was paid off...who can say for sure.  Yes, It was several years ago.  Yes, I should have gotten over it by now...but I haven't.   With that being said, guess where my beautiful, talented, smart, whitty daughter-in-law is from?  Pittsburgh...the home of the Pittsburgh Stealers.  And guess who's the BIGGEST Stealers fan in the whole world?  Yuuuup...my daughter-in-law.  Sigh...

So, the page you're about to see is a HUGE testament to how much I love my DIL...I even spelled the name of the "team" the way she would want me to...UHG!


They live in Texas, so in case you hadn't noticed yet, my son is a Cowboys fan (although I know he'll always love the Seahawks deep down too!) 

So this was actually the hardest page for me to make of all of them...not because I had to spell Stealers "right" (haha!) but because I had a heck of a time making the logo.  The Cowboys logo was easy, but I had a tough time with the Stealers one.  I wish Cricut would come out with a cartridge of NFL team logos!  Of course if the did, the licensing fees would probably run the cost of the cartridge up to $200 or something crazy like that!!

So, I'm sure you'll all understand, that when it came time to make my daughter's football page, I wasn't about to try to piece toghether the Seahawks logo on the Cricut...have you seen that thing?  She just got Seahawk's colors!


I used the Father's day cartridge for the football and helmet, but had to do some extra layering to make it look the way I wanted it to.  The font is from the Designer's Calendar cartridge (thanks Rexann!) and it was welded together on my Gypsy.
See ya tomorrow!!!!

I'm loving these pages!! My family is from WV and the closest thing we have to a football team (other than WVU) is the Steelers. I think I'm the only one in my family who doesn't like them. So I understand.

Great pages, Amy!!!! Keep them coming! I've always wanted an MLB or an NFL licensed cartridge also!! And sometimes it's a little rough in my brother's house, as we New Englanders are die-hard Pats fans...and his wife is from Pittsburgh also! Yup...those"stealers"!!!
