This is such a great template of Ali's! LOVE the rounded corners on all the blocks! I turned the template on its side and merged and resized a couple of blocks to accomodate the large team photo, as well as the scan of the newspaper article. And, that's exactly what makes templates so great... they are sooooo versatile! (And, geez... I seem to have gotten "grungy" on my last two layouts... whassup with that? LOL)

Last week, Shannon's high school team won "The Battle of the Bay", beating our cross-town (across the bay, actually!) rivals! And, yes... on paper, the rivals were supposed to win! But, they didn't! LOL And, best of all... Shannon's coach acknowledged her "...strong play..." and her name was printed in the article in the local newspaper! *grinnin' from ear-to-ear!* I thought Pattie's "Classified Clippings" was a perfect way to highlight Shannon's little blurb! *smiley*
