limeLIGHT Project for September!

Happy Sunday all! I'm excited to show you my limeLIGHT project for September. Mandy asked us to make a treat box and card for fall. Well, at our house fall means...football! So I thought it might be fun to make a card and box for our family Fantasy Football League.

The most important part of this project is...the football player image. For that I knew I had to use the football player Billy from Pink Cat Studios. Any football player at our house must have green and gold on...yep, that is right...Green Bay Packer colors. So what makes this a fun project? Well, inside the bag in the box are little slips of paper that have a "job" on them. Whomever the lowest point getter is for the week will have to pull a piece of paper and do that "job." I put things such as "run around the house three times", "kiss your mama on the cheek", "wear one shoe to church the next week"...stuff like that. Too, fun...right?

So, what other things did I use from limeLIGHT? Well, see that fun DoubleMates Luscious Lime green paper? Yep, limeLIGHT. And the White Gel Pen for the field? Yep, limeLIGHT. I just love the variety of products you can find at limeLIGHT!

I bet you'd like to see more of these fun combinations, huh? Well, all you have to do is check out the limeLIGHT design team...links are on my sidebar so check 'em out!

Have a great rest of your Labor Day weekend everyone!

Wowzers, Lorie! This is even cooler than I imagined when you described it! And I just love that expression on little football Billy's face. ;) Makes me smile!

Fabulous job on this whole set Lorie! :) I love those nesties--I bought some for my mom and I need to go over there and punch me out some more white ones! LOL. I actually can't stand football--crazy I know! Grew up with a dad who HAD to watch it every chance he could get - even during dinner and his yelling gave me indigestion, LOL!! THANK GOD I married a man who doesn't HAVE to watch it all the time. But anyway, your little boy football player is a cutie!
