The image is colored with my trusty Crayolas, the gold panel was run through the Cuttlebug, and I added a snippet of ribbon with a football brad. I wish all cards were completed so quickly; I will have to visit my "to be finished later" bin more often!

The theme for Bellarific Friday this week was "Back to School". For me, this cheerleader image was perfect...back to school meant getting out my rockets and pom poms.... Back to school meant football cheerleading; I was also a basketball cheerleader, but there was nothing quite as exciting as the football season. The crisp, fall air; the excitement of a winning season. Back in the day, our school was a football powerhouse. We had so much fun! We had a great coach; we did lots of fun stunts, games and skits at our weekly pep rallys. For the home games we would paint a run through for the team and we would take turns hosting the other cheerleaders, on the squad, for supper before the game. We would work hours to perfect a dance routine that was presented at the Homecoming pep rally. We would also get corsages from the team for Homecoming; they were HUGE spider mums with ribbons dangling with football charms.... Yes, they were ugly! LOL We also had a "football buddy" and we would decorate their locker and leave them treats inside.... Yes, we would also sneak treats for ourselves too! LOL Anyway, this walk down memory lane was fun for me; those were good times!
I would love to hear what you remember about back to school...please share!
