Football is Like Life Clipboard

Are you ready for football season?  Yeah, me neither.  Actually I don't know a thing about the sport and usually consider college football a bit of a nusiance because we live by a big university town where the pig skin is a big deal.  You can forget about going anywhere in town on game day. 

Okay, back the main point.  This post is actually about the clipboard I made for my friend's husband.  His daughters and wife all have a fancy clipboard and he was feeling a bit left out.  Or so I like to think.  The usual flowers would not do, but he is a huge and I do mean huge football fan.  He even has a ginormous trophy for winning his fantasy football league last season.
His wife Margaret helped me find the perfect papers at Archivers.  I used them along with a $2 unfinished clipboard from Staples, my Alphalicious Cricut cartridge to use the name, and a Doodlebug Design Inc. paper frill border to make this ultra manly version of a decoupaged clipboard.
More footballs on the backside and a since the clipboard is just a wee bit over 12 inches I printed out a football quote I found online and added it.  I kinda like how it breaks things up from all that brown.  It can be tough to figure out masculine ways to use my papercrafting skills.  I'm really pleased by how this venture turned out and I'm told Eric really liked it too.
