I love rainy Sunday mornings. Especially when we haven't had a rainy day for months and our soil is all crumbly with this drought. I bet the plants are doing their happy dances right now.
I also love it because it gives me an excuse to be lazy and lay in bed for 2 hours reading before I got up (a real luxury) and not need to try to find any ambition to do anything. Somehow it is OK to lay on the couch and watch (American) football when it is raining and dark all day. I don't think I will ACTUALLY do that, but if I want to, I could and not feel guilty about doing it.
So my Art Journal Journey page today has a little bit to do with (American) football. This month's theme (Thanks Elizabeth) is Back to School, and back to school is the start of football season. Here in the US a lot of high school football games are played on Friday nights. In some parts of the US, not so much in New Hampshire where I live, Friday night high school football is huge. Saturday is usually college football day, and then Sunday is the professionals. I know here in New England professional football is the most popular. I am married to a football guy so Sundays is always about the Patriots (much loved here, much hated elsewhere), and then whatever other game he can catch is on the TV. I will admit he is not the stop life for the game kind of a guy, and he loves being able to record the game and then watching it later in the day once he's done with whatever he is doing.
Now on to my page. High schools and colleges usually have a weekend in the fall called Homecoming Weekend. There are often many events but the big one is the home football game. In high school for homecoming weekend, there is usually a dance for the students after the big game (or the next day in some cases). There is often a homecoming king and queen, 2 people either picked or voted for by the other students. I think this king and queen part is going away, at least at the school where I work.
This is what my page is about. A little love story about the home coming dance.
My background paper is an alphabet, to represent school, and it also works with the new challenge at Moo Mania which is alphabets. Not sure this couple looks exactly like high school kids, but it is still them in their 50 years together. I also used some die cuts, a stamp or 2 and a couple of stickers too. Those black discs are old vinyl records (gone but coming back I see), and I added a speaker and a microphone.
So that's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
