Are You Ready For Some Football????

Here at Flamingo Scraps, we take our college football very seriously!! Susan and I are rabid, diehard University of Florida Fighting Gators football fans, and well, so is my 80 year old mother! My dear Mama is one of those immaculate people who does not allow ANYTHING on her refrigerator -- or so she thought. A couple of years ago, I started sending her altered Gator Football Schedules and she will allow those on the fridge!
This is Mama's 2010 Gator Football Schedule
Here in NE Florida, so close to Gainesville (home of the U of FL), we can find a plethora of Gator themed scrapbook papers, stickers, and ribbons -- and Tim Holtz Stormy Sky and Dried Marigold Distress Inks just happen to match the Gator colors of Orange and Blue!!!

However, if you are a football fan and can't find patterned paper in your team's colors, you can still try this little project with plain cardstock, letter stickers, and patterned ribbon.  I have to say that when I saw the Teresa Collins NOEL collection (coming soon to Flamingo Scraps!), I thought of the Georgia Bulldogs!  Black Soot and Fired Brick Tim Holtz Inks would be fabulous for the Carolina Gamecocks.  And LSU fans -- gold and purple are big colors in collections this fall and winter.

Whatever your team allegiance -- high school, college, pros -- have a little fun this season and try an altered schedule for your fridge!

One parting comment -- IT IS GREAT TO BE A FLORIDA GATOR!!!


  1. Great looking schedule :) Iowa all the way here :)

  2. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh that is such a cool IDEA!!! I might make one for my MIL for lol lol....except I will have to choke on her team choices...sooooooooooo not mine!! LOL!! She is AZ all the way...and I am a true NY'er!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  3. I'm a Tar Heel/Gamecock, so those colors work for me! When we lived in SC, we even had a garnet room! :-) Actually, this idea is perfect for my kids, I need to make one for each. Thanks for the inspo...
    and I live in Gator Land now, guess I better get used to it--my kids are Gator fans! :-)

  4. I have one thing to say about all of this... LSU!!!! Hehe I love your little magnet. My father in law would probably love one. Hmmm...

  5. What a great idea! We are Illini fans here. My son and husband would love one of these.

  6. Your Grandma sounds great! What a neat idea!
